Team building is a vital part of any business today.
The success of organisations is driven by the performance of teams which means a priority is having happy, motivated, healthy and team-oriented staff.
Scheduling regular team building and bonding activities through the year is a great way to maintain this commitment.
So what team activities and games are good to stage through the year you may ask?
To give you a helping hand, here are my top five team building programs for 2018:
- Bikes For Tykes
Bikes For Tykes continues to be one of our most powerful programs. Teams work through a series of activities with the objective to build a bike from scratch and put a smile on an underprivileged child’s face. The popularity of this program comes down to both the team outcomes achieved and the delight in making a difference to someone else’s life.
- Beach Games
With the Commonwealth Games coming up in April, Beach Games is perfect to get into the spirit of the Games and enjoy a beautiful beach environment at the same time. Teams will represent a country and participate in a number of sports games and challenges that you would find at a Commonwealth Games except with more focus on fun.
Just like the very popular reality TV show, Survivor presents fun and challenging team activities to determine an ultimate survivor. This program can be staged in a range of outdoor environments with adventures and twists to test the mettle of anyone. Survivor is great to hold at retreats, camps, staff conferences and can be adapted for all terrains.
- City Scramble
In City Scramble, teams learn how much they know about a city or location and how well they can navigate through various challenges and maps. It’s a very popular way to explore a destination whilst bonding with a team, having fun and identifying people’s strengths in problem solving.
- Corporate Chef
From getting ingredients, designing a menu to cooking a meal for everyone to later enjoy, this will be a culinary experience to remember as well as unveil who is the best team of cooks in your workplace. Corporate Chef can also have a charity outcome where the meal is donated to a community organisation.
