Four Events for your Team in 2017


It’s a new year, which means a fresh start for you and your work team. Embrace the opportunity to bring your team closer than ever to conquer any challenges that 2017 may bring. Orlando teambuilding experts at Fun Planners have all the resources to make your team feel closer than ever using a variety of different activities. Here are four ideas to consider when planning upcoming events for your team.  

  • Room Escape Games


These mysterious, real-time puzzles have become increasingly popular as a way to build team chemistry and utilize logic, patience, and strategy. The way it works is your team will get locked inside a room for one hour, and the only way for them to escape is to find the key to let them out. (This event may not be recommended for any claustrophobic or easily-frightened employees, so make sure to ask the team first before booking). This is no walk in the park, because the key will be difficult to find.. Finding it involves its own puzzles, clues, and mysteries. It’s a difficult challenge and requires team work, group brainstorming, and partnership in order to find a way out.

  • Karaoke Night

Bring your team to a local karaoke bar, give them a mic, and get ready for the concert!. Karaoke will undoubtedly elicit long-lasting laughter and bonding within your team. This will be beneficial for some team members to get out of their shell; it will break the ice, and serve as a way to let loose.

  • Scavenger Hunt

Here’s another event that can significantly boost teamwork and communication skills. Organize a scavenger hunt around your city, and break your team into groups to make it into a friendly competition. This will be a refreshing, challenging way for your team to get closer and work together in a different kind of environment away from the office.

  • Volunteering

Last but not least, arrange a day for your team to go out and volunteer together. This is not only a rewarding experience, but this team building experience will mutually benefit an organization who truly appreciates the help. You can round up everyone to pitch in a gift to a local hospital and personally deliver them (this can even be drawings and toys for kids) or go to a nonprofit organization like Ronald McDonald House to cook a meal for the families staying there. Organize a big dinner with your team to celebrate the day’s success.

It’s imperative that your team gets off on the right foot this year, so sprinkle some good times and laughter into your team’s work life. The Orlando team building experts at Fun Planners encourage corporate camaraderie and are here to help you build your team chemistry!
