We suggest to embrace the classics! Company picnics in the summer, and a holiday parties in December or January are the first two that we think are best. If you’re not doing these, you need to.
It’s that third Team Building event that is a toughie for most people. The last Team Building event should be creative, unique, break people out of their normal routine, and if possible…their comfort zone. Most importantly, it should re-enforce team work. Consider your group, their ages, personalities, and their physical abilities. If you’re excluding people from the beginning, then you’ve missed the point of team building! Don’t worry, there are activities that include everyone that are still extremely fun. Team building is about the company, and about bringing the employees together to create a more productive work environment. Consider a sports night with competitive games, or a game show night where people are divided up into teams. Make sure there is a challenge for every skill level, so the person who isn’t athletic, or someone who isn’t trivia savvy, has a chance to shine. Perhaps a Murder Mystery Dinner for an older team would be exciting, or a Spy School for a more energetic team! Your imagination in the only limit we give you! Team Building is a nice way to have everyone together, not working, and to give the boss a chance to give out prizes.
