They say a happy employee equals a productive employee. And one great way to produce happy employees is by allowing them time and space to bond with colleagues. This is where team building activities come into play. They not only encourage teamwork and productivity but also boost employees’ morale.

If you’re now planning for your next team adventure, it’s best that you consult with a company with expertise in destination management to help you with the itinerary planning, transportation and booking arrangements. With their help, you can be sure to craft only the best activities for your employees. Here’s a list of fun activities and destinations you can consider.

Summer Camp

Who says summer camps are just for children? Create wonderful memories for the whole team through a summer camp experience. Let them enjoy a night full of sharing and swapping stories over a campfire.

Through this experience, participants will be able to disclose their fears, worries, and what they like and don’t like about the team. Employees can get to know one another on a deeper level and create better connections. This would later work to your business’ advantage, as they collaborate on tasks and projects.

Corporate Survivor: Beach Edition

Develop your team’s strategy, problem-solving and survival skills through a fun and interesting game of Survivor. Bring your team to an outdoor area, a beach or a camp and make a list of obstacles and mind-boggling games. Channel the inner competitiveness of each one and make them learn how each of their contributions creates a better and stronger team.

Every task prepared will require different skills, allowing others to shine and contribute to the team. In this version of Survivor, members won’t not need to eliminate each other; they have to work together to save a member.

Sports Fest

Organize an inter-department sports fest for your company. Sports are one of the best ways to develop camaraderie, sportsmanship and teamwork. Playing for a team with one goal increases spirits and motivations.

Sports can vary from basketball, volleyball, soccer, football, even golf and bowling. For others who don’t know how to play sports, you can also organize obstacle races, fun run, cheering competitions, other physical activities and even simple board games.

Snow Day

When was the last time you let yourself free and just play outside with snow? Let your team experience a fun and exciting Snow Day. Bring out the child in you and show a little competitiveness as you play and have fun in the snow. Create teams and do amazing races, with obstacle and relay in the cold but exciting winter weather.

Make this an opportunity to create an unforgettable memory with your team. Bond and discover the hidden talents and skills of your colleagues. If you can go to a site where a lake has frozen over, you can have fun ice skating or playing hockey.

There are numerous companies whose expertise is in handling these kinds of recreational activities. With proper guidance and planning, you’ll be able to have fun and learn at the same time. Studies have proven that team building activities encourage creativity, and increase productivity and collaboration. Your next company outing might be the much-needed break and breather your employees deserve.
