A staff that gets along and works well together is also one that works more efficiently and produces better results. One of the best ways to improve your company’s performance in a fun way is to host a team-building activity where team members can have fun outside of an office setting and get to know each other better. Here are four of the best ways to bring your team together and have a blast all at the same time.
1) Trivia Night
You don’t necessarily have to leave the office to create a fun activity that brings your staff together. A trivia contest is a great way to get teams communicating and working together, all while having a great time. Break your staff down into teams by your actual work teams to build unit strength, or mix and match among departments to help your staff get to know coworkers they may be less familiar with.
2) Escape Rooms
For effective team building, it’s hard to beat an event that teaches your team to work together while having fun. Taking on the puzzles and riddles of a room allows staff members to show off their critical thinking skills, teaches the team to work as a unit and is simply a great time.
If you’re looking for something to bring your team together while also having a positive effect on the community around you, consider a volunteer drive like working together at a food kitchen, hosting a charity event or adopting a highway. Not only does volunteering allow you to help others in need while also bonding your team, but it’s also great public relations for your company as an added bonus.
4) Golf Outing
Participating in a golf outing, or even hosting your own, is an exciting way to bond with your staff. Whether you have a big company that can run an even on its own or you are smaller and simply purchase a few foursomes in the event, an outing gets you and staff outdoors together and even comes with the chance to win some golf tournament raffle prizes or skill-based contests during the event. There are few more effective ways to improve your staff’s productivity than finding teambuilding activities to participate in. While the actual events themselves are often viewed by staff as just a day of fun, the bonds that are formed during the course of the event position your company to excel when you get back to work.
