Could your team do with a pick-me-up to boost the mood in the office? Some members of staff need a new spring in their step? These corporate event ideas could be just the ticket. Not only can you make the event incredibly fun, it’s an excellent way to facilitate bonding between team members and increase their feelings of self-worth.
How puzzlingCan your team work as one to unravel the mystery of a hidden room and solve a variety of puzzles to escape? There are lots of different elements that will test and unveil the different strengths of individual team members, and many places offer a range of challenging themes for the picking to keep it entertaining too. We’ve seen some places that even design your event from scratch and organise a DJ, drinks from the bar and a BBQ.
Do as the tourists doIt might be a little but embarrassing but we promise you, once they get into it, they will begin to enjoy whichever touristy activity you’ve got lined up for them. Maybe it’ll be a ride on the London Eye (or similar in your city), a boat tour or a trip to the zoo – all the things you never think to do in your home town. If anything, the shared embarrassment will help the bonding process, bring your staff closer and even give them something to reminisce about back in the office.
Muddy bootsAlthough this one could amount to a little more persuading for some team members, it could be the best thing they ever signed up for. The challenge in Tough Mudder lies in navigating the miles of obstacles along the muddy route in a team, and with the toughness that it requires. So, physically demanding, but also mentally because everyone needs to show full courage and not forget to encourage others.
Model colleaguesFor something that involves getting only the hands dirty, look to a clay modelling or pottery workshop. It could end up being something that no one has done, and so everyone can relax and have fun learning a new skill in an informal environment which is ideal to enhance communications. Who knows, it could even become a regular fixture among a group who discover a whole new passion for pottery and bring them closer together. Here are just some ideas for those of you looking for unusual ideas to encourage team bonding, build trust between staff and educate and reward individuals as well as the collective. We can’t stress the power and lasting effect of corporate events enough. Would you like to see how we can create an event for you and your team from scratch?
