Most of the time, all work, and no fun make the employees sad and unproductive. When you notice that your team is lacking enthusiasm at work, then you know it is time to bring the fun back.
If you do these bonding activities once a month or a few times per year, your employees will appreciate them. It is a proven way to reduce stress and get to know each other better.
Here are some of the best corporate event ideas and activities you can try.
1. Escape Room
Room Escape games have become such a favorite activity and even a team building exercise for corporations.
For an hour, a group of five to six people is locked in a room, and the goal is to escape before the time runs out. This fantastic exercise activated an extensive set of skills, such as:
The team has an hour to find clues or hidden objects and put together puzzles to escape the room.
2. Board Games Night
Everyone loves board games so why not play them all night long? You can organize them during a weekend at the office.
You can even make it into a tournament and choose only one board game to play. It may be easier especially if your team may have a hard time deciding what games they want to play.
To maximize competition, you can incentivize your team with some fun prizes.
3. Comedy/Magic Show
This is one of our favorite corporate event ideas. The purpose of organizing activities or events with your employees is to help them unwind, relax and have fun.
What better way to do this than to see a comedy show or a live magician doing some amazing tricks? Make sure you find a place that can accommodate all of your employees and can provide the technical equipment. Then, let the magician take care of the rest.
4. Laser Tag
Laser tag is one of those group activities that will get your adrenaline pumping. Moreover, probably make you sweat as well.
However, it can be incredibly fun for everyone because you will get to compete against another team. Similar to room escape, this activity will exercise your team working skills, your strategy, and logic.
Sometimes, your employees have to let it all out. One way to do it is to sing your lungs out. Karaoke can be much fun, especially when you are with a large group of friends.
To add a twist to it, you can do a small contest for the craziest performance. You will crack up when you are going to see what your employees come up with.
