Corporate Team Building Activities & Events Employees Will Love

When done well, corporate team building activities are more than just fun, they are valuable investments in the culture and productivity of your organisation.

We’ve all been to team building events that were just plain boring, or worse, potentially threatened our willing participation. We’re also well aware that not every organisation or business can afford to bring in an expert to deliver these activities. We get it.

This article will, first, describe some of the key benefits of investing time and energy into building and nurturing your team. Then, we share our top ten team building activities which you can run yourself.

 

Benefits of Corporate Team Building

 

The anecdotal and scientific evidence that supports a focus on team building activities for adults (staff and employees) is abundantly clear.

In short, the more time and energy you invest in building trusting and healthy relationships among your staff, the more you can amplify whatever your organisation is trying to achieve. And one of the best, and thankfully, most attractive ways to do this is presenting a series of carefully sequenced team building games and activities.

When you invest the time and energy to develop a strong team, you can expect to see these benefits:

  • Higher productivity because your staff will be more willing to work together;
  • Increased levels of motivation (and decrease in absenteeism;)
  • Higher levels of creativity & critical thinking; and
  • Improved communication which leads to fewer instances of misunderstandings.
