Fun team building programmes or team bonding programmes are primarily designed to strengthen workplace relationships. The main goal a company wants to achieve with a fun team building event is to give its employees an opportunity to relax. They are a great way to increase employee motivation. A fun team building programme might include rafting on the Soča River, treasure hunting at a location of your choice, creative workshops, such as building racing cars and competing in a Grand Prix, even programmes combining several sports – in short, the possibilities are almost unlimited. You only need to let your imagination run free.
While we recommend that you have team building activities at least once a year, there’s nothing wrong if you decide on two or three programmes a year. The more time you dedicate to strengthening relationships and to your employees, the more they’ll give you in return. And the greater effort they’ll make, the more they’ll like their work. Team building programmes require good preparation and organisation, since an element of surprise is also important to achieve that memorable effect. That’s why it’s important to leave the organisation of such an event to a company that specialises in this area.
