How to Organise an Unforgettable Team Building Day

If you want your business to grow, you need your employees to get along with each other. You also want to build a stronger team that is much more efficient as it is after all the teamwork of your employees that will lead to the success of your business.

The following will help you to grasp the importance of team building and provide you with some ideas for organising an unforgettable team building day.

Importance of Team Building

One of the key reasons why you need to have team building sessions is because through socialising, you will be able to break the tension at your workplace. It allows your employees to become even more comfortable with each other and thus enjoy the work environment. When the teamwork between employees gets better, it leads to greater productivity for your business - a proven fact!

Here are a few ways to build a better team:

Take Everyone Outdoors!

Your team spends enough time indoors working. So, it's time to take them out of the working environment and into the natural world. A great way to begin is to conduct a multi-activity day. You can plan an entire day of outdoor activities at some of the UK's top venues.  

The purpose of these activities is not only to have fun, but to let the employees bond together. There are literally hundreds of different outdoor activities that you can choose from, like riding quad bikes, archery, or shooting. You can customise your day out to your team, budget and needs.  

A great recommendation while conducting outdoor team building activities is the 'it's a knockout' challenge. This game involves everything from fun costumes to water games and colourful inflatable products. All in all, there aren't many team building activities that are as fun-filled as this game, especially if we're talking about outdoor team building activities.

Crack the Case

An important aspect of building any team is to train them to solve a certain problem together. After all, problem-solving skills are something that will greatly assist your business in growing while adding to their productivity as well. What better way to let your employees build those problem-solving skills than by inviting them to a fun game of crack the case? Team building events by Team Tactics offer several case-cracking games, along with many other activities for staff to take part in together.

The Adventure

If you want to make things even more enticing for your employees, you can take them on a London adventure. There is a London Game of Zones where you can take the team building effort to a whole new level. Not only will it be extremely fun but while working together, bonding will also become effortless while being indulged in such a fun-filled activity.

Build Something!

If for some reason you can't arrange an outdoor event for your company, there are hundreds of things you could do indoors as well. A great way to help your team work together while staying indoors is to build something.

You can take on a certain project like building a bike. It is something that would require more than one person per team. Stage a cooking competition, emulate Master Chef! There is so much more you can do indoors like baking, hosting different competitions, and organising different challenges.

Choosing Team Building Events

Choosing the right activities for your team is of the upmost importance. The main reason being that your core intention with these events is not to have fun, it's to build your team and bring them closer so they can actually learn to work in harmony and align their productivity accordingly.

This is why the events mentioned above or any other event you choose should be well thought out. Otherwise, all your efforts to build a strong team will be in vain. This would be a loss of time, effort, and money.
