How to Pick the Right Teamwork Activities

Taking your team on your next corporate team building day… but have no idea what activities to host? Don’t worry, many other people that have planned corporate team building days have been in the same position! It can seem a bit daunting at first… so that’s why we’ve got a few tips, tricks and ideas to help you find out what activity would be perfect for you and your team.

The first thing that you should consider before deciding on any activities is, ultimately, what you want to get out of your day? If it’s a brand new workforce and you’re hoping to break the ice and get everyone acquainted, then why not take the team on a fun and casual pizza making class? Or are you looking to treat the team to something fun and engaging after a busy year with an activity like a smartphone pub treasure hunt?

Another key point to consider should be what skills you would like to develop and encourage within your team. Maybe you’ve noticed a drop in effective commu­nica­tion over the year and would like to bring that aspect of the workforce back up to scratch with an activity like our masterpiece challenge team building? Or perhaps your team tends to work alone, so you would like to host an activity that encourages positive teamwork and colla­bora­tion like the wacky wheels team building event that can also spark some creative flare. With all these factors considered, hopefully you can ask yourself these questions and it might bring you a bit closer to the answer!
