1. Escape Rooms
Pop-up escape rooms have been on the rise in the last few years, so you probably will have an easy time locating one to bring your team. If not, get creative and clearout a couple office rooms or halls to make your own. Split teams up into small groups, they will need to rely on problem solving and communication as well as time management skills to get through the rooms.
2. City Quests
This activity will require a couple hours but can be done in your own city. Create groups of five. Two team members will be searching for hidden flags (near popular locations) while the rest of the team will be using maps, GPS, and verbal instructions to give clues. This activity will teach employees to trust in one another and learn to rely on their communication skills.
3. Sous Chef for a Day
Let your employees show their creative sides with this fun and delicious activity. Find a simple recipe where the ingredients can be found easily, such as cupcakes or apple pie. Team members will need to assign roles and come together to create their ‘masterpiece’. Set a time limit, and have each team present their plates to the rest of the teams, allow time for taste testing and have teams vote on the which team had the best tasting and best-presented dish.
4. Community Service
Not only will community service bring your employees closer together it will show the importance of giving back to their community. Find something that reflects your company values and will get your employees excited about volunteering, such as a park clean up. Getting out of the office to do some good for the community will have the most impact.
5. Virtual Reality
This activity is not only challenging but fun! Virtual reality is perfect for small and large companies. The fact that members will be able to play a game for a couple hours will be enough to get them excited. Teams will be able to show off communication and problem-solving skills.
