Most can agree that there is value in Orlando team building, as it allows organizations to be more productive, effective, and successful. However, when employees hear that their participation in an upcoming team building event is required, there are sure to be more eye rolling than high fives and cheers. So, what is an organization to do? Here are some great ideas for team building that your employees will love.
- Office Trivia: For this activity, you will need to come up with 20-25 questions to ask your employees, all pertaining to your company. Think of more general questions, such as “What year was the company founded?” to “What is the exact number of people in the Human Resources department?” But, add some strange and out-of-the box questions, such as “What is the most popular month for employee birthdays” or “What is the most ordered item, per month, for office supplies?” You can have this be an individual activity or create teams.
- Escape Rooms: By now, we are sure you have heard of those escape rooms that are increasing in popularity across the country. If you have been living under a rock lately, these rooms are an adventure game that challenges those locked in the room to use provided hints to escape the room in a given amount of time. Have your employees form teams, and the one that gets out in the shortest amount of time, wins.
- Marshmallow Tower: For this activity, you will need about 20 sticks of uncooked spaghetti, one roll of masking tape, three feet of twine, and one marshmallow. Have your employees form groups and whoever can construct the tallest tower wins. But here is the catch: the marshmallow has to be on the very top, AND the tower must stand on its own.
