Team Building During the Holidays
The holidays are the perfect time to bring team-building activities to any company. They help relieve stress and teach employees to work together more effectively.
Here are some fun team-building activities:
– Divide employees into teams. Challenge the teams to raise money or items for charity. The idea is to get the team members to work together toward a goal. Decide on a suitable prize for the winning team.
– Start a Secret Santa project. Decide on a cost limit as a team. Have each team member write down on a piece of paper their name, some gift ideas, and something about themselves that others might not know. Pass out a name to each person. Reveal the secret gifts at a company holiday party.
– Give employees an intellectual challenge. Organize a scavenger hunt in the office. Divide employees into small teams, and supply them with a set of clues for finding certain items. After they’ve all been found, donate them to a local strategic partner or shelter.
– Have a decorating contest. Encourage employees to decorate their offices in a departmental theme. Each department will work together to come up with ideas. Make it fun and encourage original ideas. Have a potluck dinner to hand out prizes to the winning team(s).
Team building activities bring the workplace closer and promotes healthy company culture. The holidays are a great time of year to provide these opportunities to your staff.
