Most companies want to promote a feeling of togetherness and comradery among their employees. In order to do this, they need to bring everyone together in a meaningful way. Here are four team-building activities that you can do at your corporate event other than a trust fall.
One of the most fun team-building activities is a scavenger hunt. Individuals will have to work together in order to solve clues that will lead them to the grand prize. You can have your employees work in small groups or as one big team.
Go Kart Racing
Sometimes, a little adrenaline and a competitive spirit are exactly what you need to bring people together. You can make reservations at go-kart tracks for corporate events. Set up tournaments between teams or let everyone race for themselves. Often, tracks will have rooms set aside for parties, so you’ll have plenty of room for food and seating in between races.
This is a great activity to play if you are trying to get your team to learn how to follow instructions. How it works is that a designated person describes an object, and each individual has to listen to the instructions in order to try to successfully draw it. Your team will really have to focus on what the person is saying if they want to be successful at this activity. This is the perfect game to play at a variety of different corporate events.
Wall Of Memories
There have probably been a lot of great memories made at your company throughout the years. You can use these memories to bring people together. Create a wall of memories for your employees to contribute to. Give each individual a few sticky notes, and have them write some of their favorite memories on them. They will then place these memories on the wall, and you can read allowed each memory once everyone is finished. This activity is a great way for everyone to reflect back on some of the good times you’ve shared together.
Make A Movie
There’s a good chance that you have a lot of creative employees. You can use this to your advantage by putting them in small groups and having them create a short movie. Give them a theme and a time limit as to how long they can take to create it. Once everyone is finished, have them gather together, and share their movies with everyone.
You don’t just have to rely on those old trust exercises to try to get your employees to bond. If you are looking for something new to add to your corporate events, consider one of the team-building activities mentioned above. These activities will bring your employees together in a unique way that they won’t soon forget.
