10 Best Team Building Activities For Your Next Company Team Bonding
Everyone needs to let their hair down and loosen up a bit every once in a while. Not only do team bonding activities give everyone a much needed break from work, it also strengthens the team’s camaraderie and working relationships.
However, organising and planning for team building activities is a challenge within itself! With everybody having different ideas of fun, it’s difficult to settle on that perfect activity that everyone will like! Especially for a 100-man team like ShopBack!
We have compiled a list of some great team bonding ideas that you can do. We have even tried some of them ourselves so you can take our word for it!
This one is a no-brainer. There’s no better way to bring the team together than to shoot each other on the field! (Take that chance to target that boss that everyone dislikes!)
Get the team together and strategise how to invade the other team’s base and get their flag. This activity requires a lot of teamwork for you to succeed so it sure is one good way to strengthen your bonds with your colleagues. Paintball is always a great way to bring out each other’s strengths that you can’t often show in an office setting. Who knows, you might find a great leader in one of the silent guys in the group!
So maybe going outdoors and having pelts shot at you isn’t really your thing. How about doing it indoors?
Laser Tag is just like paintball only that it is held indoors – and minus the angry welts and bruises the next day.
Bossaball is a new and fun way of bonding with your team. This new ‘sport’ combines volleyball, gymnastics and soccer all in one!
This activity requires two teams of 3 to 5 members, with each member positioning themselves around the inflatable court and on the trampoline. Jump around, spike and kick the balls and show of your athleticism to get the ball to the opposing side.
If your team loves a physical challenge, or simply needs to get off their computer screens, this one is a heck of an exercise!
If Bossaball is too intense, enjoy the fun of casually jumping around at a trampoline park! Enjoy the same adrenaline of the trampoline, without the high-intensity soccer and volleyball games.
Bring the team for a session of carefree jumping, but if you want to be more creative, challenge your team to a synchronised trampolining display!
Want a real challenge for your team? Try an escape room.
No better way to bond than to lock your team up in a room, where their only way out is through teamwork and problem-solving. Each room has a variety of challenges that could play to the wheelhouse of almost anyone in the group.
Take your team to play in a beginner’s golf course, or make it more fun with a themed mini golf party! It doesn’t have to be all about trying to be a ‘pro’. Champions Golf even has a special corporate package which includes a fancy 3-course lunch or dinner! However, prices start from $90 per pax so there might be a bit of convincing and nudging needed.
Sometimes we all need some Vitamin ‘Sea’ and kayaking is something that can help the whole team get a little bit of much-needed sunlight!
Plus, there’s a great need for teamwork and synchronisation in rowing – or screaming and laughing when you fall off the kayak! But don’t worry, you’ll do just fine. You got our word on how fun and exciting it is!
If kayaking is a bit too extreme for you, your team can become one with nature whilst trekking along the many nature trails in Singapore.
You’ll surely enjoy the peaceful moments of tranquility amongst the flora and fauna.
If there’s anything Singaporeans can agree on, it’s that we love food! Opt for something chill yet fun and show off your culinary skills with cook-off sessions and challenges.
Sample the food made by your team mates and discover who are the hidden domestic gods and goddesses! It’s flexible, it’s fun… and it’s tasty!
You don’t exactly have to be a Picasso or a Van Gogh to enjoy art jamming. Invite the entire team for a day of fun and art at some of the many art jamming studios in Singapore.
Let everyone’s creativity (or lack thereof) shine as they chat over tea and snacks. You can make it competitive by giving out awards and prizes, or even have everyone paint according to a specific theme!
It’s also a great way to encourage everyone to speak and present their work to share more about their personalities and creative processes.
Now remember, the goal of any team bonding activity is to bring each member closer together! But most importantly, it is to have fun!
