Team building events have become a go-to for companies looking to boost their morale and workplace productivity. Yet, they’re turning away from off-the-shelf products and instead are demanding experiences that are specifically designed to meet their objectives.
Below, we’ve put together some of the key trends companies are looking for when they select their desired team building event.
Considering how smart phone-dependent the world is today, technology will be a key concern when thinking about team building events. When designing large conferences or team events, organizations will increasingly be turning to interactive technology, such as social media, apps and iPads, to add to the whole event experience and keep audience members engaged.
Another popular team building activity trend is to indulge in activities that focus around good food and drinks. Tapas and sangria, wine and cheese … the possibilities are endless for collaboration, creativity and fun!
Holding an event outdoors can help open participants’ minds to new perspectives, and research has shown that getting a dose of Vitamin D can have a positive impact on the mental wellbeing of your team. When it comes to outdoor activities, there are many possibilities for your team to choose from. Whether it’s a sporting event, picnic or a corporate cooking challenge – being outside really enables team members to get to know each other in a relaxed environment.
A great way for employees to bond is to embrace their creative sides! This can be through painting, yoga or cooking classes. This allows team members to not only let their guards down, but it also enables them to tap into their creativity and have fun while doing it!
