Whether you’re in the office or working from home, there are plenty of ways to foster strong relationships between you and your teammates. Here are 3 suggestions for team building activities that hopefully inspire you to plan something for your team soon.
Game Night: Online or In Person
Game night is a great way to unwind and work together without the pressures of your day to day job. Choose a game that focuses on teamwork if you can. For an in person game night, you can choose a board game version of an escape room. This will let your team work together to solve a puzzle using clues, cards, and personal skills. It’s a great way to connect and build memories. If you’re working remotely right now, you can use any number of virtual activities specifically designed for remote teams like The Go Game.
Schedule Some Entertainment
If you think magic shows are for kids, think again. Today there are plenty of virtual magician and mentalist shows that create a fun environment and engage team members even when they’re remote. Since not everyone is a magic enthusiast, you can also schedule virtual plays, and other remote performances. These activities will give your team something to talk about (even if it’s not a hit).
There’s nothing like a good old fashioned mingle. If you’re not ready to start a party planning committee for your company, you can start small. A team lunch, group dinner, or even a simple ice cream social can get everyone on their feet and hanging out. And if the team can’t come together, send the supplies to them. Think, make your own sundae supplies or drink mixes sent straight to their homes. Then, you can all sign on and start the fun.
