‍Although the main goal of holding office bonding activities is to improve the existing relationships among a diverse group of employees, making sure attendees have fun should also be a top priority. If you are still searching for good team building ideas for your next corporate event, here are some exciting examples:

 

Beer Tasting and Cocktail Crafting - As Ernest Hemingway says, “Drinking makes other people more interesting.” This makes alcohol tasting and cocktail creating a great way to bring your team closer. For the venue of this unusual yet fun team bonding activity, you can opt to visit wineries and breweries around your area or be more creative by creating your own libations right in your office. Just remind your team to pace themselves!

 

Charitable Events - Holding meaningful yet enjoyable charitable events such as fundraising concerts, medical missions, or voluntary work around your community hones empathy and teamwork among your valued employees. Instilling the value of charity in your office fuels corporate social responsibility in their hearts and minds.

 

Friday Open Mics - Team building activities should be a great platform to expose hidden talents among your employees. This drives their confidence and rigor in working with the team. These open mic nights (or afternoons!) can be a place to present new guitar skills, funny stand-up jokes, or emotional spoken word poetry pieces. When your office workers know the talents and skills of one another, it can help encourage a sense of bond and trust.

 

Escape Room Races - Stressful work environments can use some plain fun and excitement. Escape Room Races takes team bonding activities to a whole new level with its extremely popular adrenaline-inducing escape room games. Different to the traditional escape room experience, Escape Room Races provides companies with the option to do the activities indoors at the venue or their choice or outdoors. Whether you’re booking an outdoor escape room experience or a portable indoor escape room, we take care of all the set up, game play and clean up. Best of all, we allow customized themes too!

The Human Knot - This game combines both a quick sense of logic and willingness to get in each other’s personal space. Players stand in a circle, then grab the hands of a random person opposite of them. This leads to the titular “human knot” that they have to untangle in a short span of time. With proper teamwork, communication, and ingenuity, untangling yourself from each other should be a fun challenge.

 

The Helium Stick - No, this does not involve actual helium. The Helium Stick is a game where two teams of 4 or so members are given a light stick or rod-like object, maybe even your office’s curtain rod. Their task is to lower the stick as close to the ground as possible, using only each member’s index finger. Sounds simple? Imagine lowering your pen using your two index fingers. Are you doing it now? Is it difficult? Well, if it is, imagine doing it with a meter-long pen and five other people! This game fosters many emotions, but if one thing is guaranteed, it’s that it’ll be unforgettable. 

 

Two Truths and a Lie

A classic way to build communication and relationships in the workplace (and elsewhere), two truths and a lie is a classic game. Test how much you think you know about your peers. Each player takes turns telling three things about themselves; two of these things actually happened, while one of them is pure fabrication. Player A, for example, talks about the time they first caught a trout in a lake, the time they drove a taxi in New York, and the time they foiled a robbery using only a janitor’s mop.

 

Whatever activity you decide to do with the team, make sure you mix it up and try something new!  Also make sure you do plenty of team activities that skip the alcoholic beverages.  Happy hours are great but they typically end in the same way and lose the interest of employees who aren’t necessarily comfortable in those environments.
