Whether you’re planning a quarterly strategy meeting or a corporate retreat to build camaraderie among your team members, the activities you choose for the meeting can have a big impact on how much your employees take away from the experience. All too often, boring, clichéd team-building activities (think trust falls and egg-spoon races) inspire little more than eye-rolls and boredom. However, these three activities might just make your next corporate meeting or event something that your employees will remember.
Hands-On Food Activities
Everyone loves food and you’d be surprised at how quickly your employees jump to participate during your corporate event when food is involved. Food-related activities could include something as elaborate learning how to prepare a special dish with a certified chef at a private cooking lesson or something as simple as setting up a table with bags of icing and sugar cookies and having teams compete to create the best-looking themed cookies.
Create an Award
This is a great activity for allowing team members to acknowledge a co-worker who helped them or mentored them. Download a certificate of accomplishment template from the internet and print out enough for every member of the team (making sure to print a few extras just in case), making sure to leave the spaces blank. Hand the certificates out and allow team members to fill out the blanks and personally give the award to the person they’re honoring.
This type of activity is great for small groups, as it allows for team cooperation and a sense of healthy competition. He general rules for a building activity is that each team is provided a certain number of objects which they have to use to build a structure that is stronger, taller, or bigger than any of the other teams.
