What is team building?

Team building is all about bringing together a group of employees to foster cohesion and productivity. A strong team will work together in harmony to utilise their individual skills and achieve the company’s goals together. Many companies take the opportunity to hold team building events away from the workplace to get the best out of employees. These events can include games, activities and sports. Hiring an event venue that’s used to hosting team building events is a popular choice for both small and large companies. When considering team building it’s a good idea to talk to venues who run this type of event. They’ll have experience in running this type of activity and can give you plenty of ideas for creating an unforgettable team building event for your employees. Indoor team building has the advantage of not being subject to the weather. If you’re running an event during the cold winter months or want to be sure no time is wasted relying on the weather an indoor event is best. The challenge is to make sure the indoor event is just as much fun and motivational as an outdoor event! That’s when the advice of an event organiser can help. The trick is also to create an event that’s unique and suits your business. Here are some themes to whet your appetite - problem solving, murder mystery, circus skills, make a million, treasure island, around the world, cooking challenge… with a little imagination there’s a team building even for every business! Of course, if the weather is nice there’s no reason why the event can´t be performed outside. This is why it´s important to use a flexible venue who will be happy to make changes at the last minute. Outdoor team building activities should create a sense of excitement and allow employees to let their hair down. Whether gentle exercise, a tough challenge or just a picnic or barbecue, outdoor team building is a great way to boost team spirit. Some ideas for outdoor team building are yoga, canoeing, kayaking, treasure hunt, forest trail, survival challenge, sports, lawn games, cycling, horse riding, beach fun… again, any event can be organised. The objective is to select an event that everyone will feel comfortable taking part in but that’s also just that little bit challenging. When you take people out of their comfort zone to do something they’ve never done before it can really open their minds. Another way to promote cohesion between employees is corporate icebreakers, which is another form of team building. Sometimes management need to open up and get to know each other better. A corporate icebreaking event is a way to bring everyone round a table together. The idea is that people interact very fast in a relaxed environment. This could be done with an event similar to speed dating or games. These events are perfect for conferences of large groups of people that are time-limited. Usually 30 minutes is dedicated to the event and then the conference begins. This serves to energise and focus people and breaks down any barriers that may exist. If organised in the right way a team building event can massively improve your business in terms of employee engagement. It teaches people to trust and support each other and that colleagues are real people who have both strengths and weaknesses. Team building is also about respect for each other. We are all humans and we all have feelings. Team building allows us to see each other in a different light and work together for a common goal.
