Team Building Activity Ideas

26/09/19

There are a variety of reasons why team building is a great idea. It builds trust among employees and encourages them to open up to each other. This can have a positive impact in the office as employees may feel more able to bounce ideas off each other. This, in turn, can increase productivity. Similarly, these sort of events opens up communication channels with members of the team. This is vital for a healthy workspace. It also gives employees a chance to actually work together on problem-solving, and these skills can be transferred to working life. At Kents Hill Park, we offer a variety of team-building events for you and your team which can have a positive impact. Don’t hesitate to get in contact for more information.

These are all simple games designed for you to get moving and enjoy yourself. If you book at Kents Hill Park, we can provide all the equipment you’ll need.

This is a classic which gets team members active as well as using their brains. This one can be made as simple or as complex as you like and tailored to your team. Consider making the clues relevant to your branch or team members as an extra.

Egg Drop

Get your employees into teams and have them create a device that can keep an egg safe when dropped from a certain height. Gather together some set materials and see who’s invention is the best.

Hide an object somewhere and get your team into pairs. One will be blindfolded and the other has to guide them to the object. Whoever can do it the fastest wins.

Jeopardy

Create five questions for six categories that relate to your team or business. Break your employees into teams and whoever can get the most questions right wins.

A great game which encourages healthy competition and teamwork. At Kents Hill Park, games will be refereed, the tournament structured and prizes to be won.
