Are Food & Drink Activities Good for Mixed Groups?
You can’t exactly go wrong with some food and drink activities when it comes to team building events. Especially if you have a mixed group as everybody loves eating...and drinking! However, sometimes the standard sit down meal and drinks doesn’t boost the team in the way you hoped it would so something more unique is needed to do so.
We have plenty food and drink team building activities on offer, such as Cocktail Making which will definitely shake things up, and Pizza Making which will get the team having a flippin’ good time!
How Effective Are Indoor Team Building Activities?
Everyone knows that the weather in the UK can be completely unpredictable sometimes, so for some people outdoor activities are too much of a risk, making indoor activities the safest and most reliable option for their team building event as well as it being extremely effective.
Choosing an indoor event certainly doesn’t limit your choice in activities in any way. We offer physical indoor activities such as Dance Classes and Lip Sync battle, as well as mental activities, Escape Rooms and Retro Showdown. All our activities create a fun and energetic environment and boost team moral and skills in ways an office would never be able to.
What are the Advantages of Outdoor Activities?
There are many advantages of outdoor activities for team building. Keeping the team cooped up in the office for too long without a rewarding break has no positive effects at all. Outdoor events are brilliant for teams who need a boost in energy, leadership and communication, as teams get to bond with one another in a healthy and happy environment other than the office they are in a routine of seeing most days of the week.
Outdoor activities don’t always have to be physical either as we offer a great variety of both physical and creative activities which can be hosted outdoors such as Smartphone City Treasure Hunt or Commercial Teambreak.
What Will Team Bonding Activities Achieve?
Team building activities are absolutely vital if you want to keep the individuals within your team driven, productive and positive about their role. These activities will boost team moral and have an encouraging and rewarding overall effect on the team and they aren’t difficult to organise, so they are definitely worth a shot.
Create & Innovate
Motivate your team and get their creative thoughts flowing with something fun like creative team building activities in or outside of the office.
Wellness & Well-being
Looking after your teams wellness and well-being is important for all the other soft skills and development points, so open dialogue and get to know your team to create a safe and open space.
Positive Team Dynamics
Get your team moving as one by developing positive team dynamics within your whole team, and extinguishing any issues there may be to improve people’s happiness and work output in the work place.
We know a team would fall flat without productivity, so make sure you’re consistently developing this skill across your team with positive actions and activities.
Effective and engaging team building means stronger work ethic, which then breeds productivity and in turn will create loyalty for the company within the work place.
