When was the last time your team laughed over a topic that went on for ages?
It must have felt good laughing along, because the more we laughed along, the more engaged we feel.
As social creatures by nature, humans constantly find the need to belong. And when a sense of deep belonging is present in an organization, we feel more connected, we work better, and we become more cohesive and productive. By encouraging cohesion, everyone will be able to work in a highly positive environment.
Here we present 3 key points that will make employees remember the team bonding activity, and enjoy it much more than a seminar:
- Mentally-stimulating team building activities.
There will be a need to stimulate those creative brain juices (think out of the box) to successfully complete the challenge, this will encourage discussion and interaction among team mates. Escape rooms are gaining popularity as one of the top choices for corporate team building activities in Singapore.
- Something that require no exceptional abilities.
There are no high physical activity required; our games do not require running, jumping, climbing and reaching for items out of reach.
At times, the weather can take a turn for the worst. For this reason, going indoors ensure that your corporate event remains unaffected in our tropical climate.
- Make it during working hours.
A top complaint about team building exercises is that they have no bearing on how people spend their time out of work.
Make it during working hours for more engagement and participation. When individuals have more fun, they are more likely to remember the experience making it a worthwhile activity!
