Why Team Building?

Team building in the workplace is the process of creating a team that works together as a cohesive unit towards a common goal. The importance and the purpose of team building is to create stronger teams through forming bonds and connections.

Adventure Works Team Building

It takes a wide range of skills to effectively run a company because companies come with a wide range of personalities, cultures, and backgrounds. It's important to spend time together out of the office environment, to level the playing field amongst employees, and have shared experiences in order to nurture your staffs’ relationships. Interacting outside of one’s comfort zone pushes personal boundaries and enables a greater understanding of co-workers, reinforcing a positive company culture.

At Adventure Works we believe that team building should be a fun experience, with as much laughter as possible. Sharing a joke and having a topic for water-cooler discussions for the next few months makes for a happier working environment which directly translates to higher staff performance.

We have several categories of team-building events from structured, results-driven programs, to crazy fun events and everything in between, we can also make your one-of-a-kind event for you, just give us your idea, we'll make magic happen!

Team Building Tip

Go offsite - Sometimes, just getting out of the office/house helps people interact with one another more freely. Even if you’re doing a team-building session that could easily take place in your boardroom, go offsite anyway to establish that this is not “regular” work.

Team Building Tip

For the best outcome get your team to dress up and strategize as part of the buildup to your event.  When teams feel that they are part of the planning and get to prepare themselves mentally you'll have much better buy in from everyone.

Team Building Tip

Don’t be shy to represent your brand when you’re out there in the world. Cool swag, company branded clothing, etc., can help create a sense of unity and can also help with recruiting when others pick up on the fact that you care about employee happiness and reinforce a positive company culture.

The more your employees trust one another, the stronger and more productive your team will be. Make sure that you reinforce trust and create a culture of support to keep employees happy and increase that bottom line. It’s that simple.

Team Building Tip

Team Building Tip

If your Team Build group consists of several departments, divide your teams so that there is an equal mix from each department in each team. This will help with interdepartmental relations and levels the playing field.

Team Building Tip

We find that by far the most successful team builds are those where the boss gets fully involved in the event, yet is not a team leader and is not the one giving the orders.  Team Builds are a great opportunity for management to see their staff in action in completely different situations than they are used to and to identify the leaders and the problem solvers.  Use it as a chance to get to know your staff and let them show you what they are capable of.

Team Building Tip

Set clear expectations.  Make sure everyone knows what is expected from them on the day, so they arrive with the right mindset.  Is it compulsory? What must they wear? Should they bring a change of clothes?

Team Building Tip

Team Building doesn't always have to serious.  When your team has worked hard there's nothing wrong with just having some fun.  It has been shown to help employees stay interested, engaged and avoid complacency!  There's real merit in the old saying "Work Hard, Play Hard"...

Team Building Tip

In order to be most effective, you need regular staff interaction outside the office, preferably facilitated events using the same facilitator, who can assess how your team reacts to different scenarios and types of activities and adjust them where necessary to help build a strong and cohesive team.

Team Building Tip

If you’ve got it right and your company has regular team building sessions, make sure that you are mixing them up.  Rotate between competitive, let off some steam activities, and more laid back events like art, cooking or a tour to engage all the senses.

Team Building Tip

Why not include your team in a brainstorming session to find the best Team Building events or solutions for you.  This will also give you some insight into what they're interested in or what they think needs to be addressed within the company. Remember #NoWrongAnswers during this meeting.

Team Building Tip

One of your key objectives behind planning team building activities should be to address the areas where your team might be lagging. These can be anything like:

Lack of workplace communication

Neglecting new joiners and their ideas

Irregular time management, etc.

Organizing team activities frequently is a great opportunity to address issues on neutral grounds before they become a problem.

Team Building Tip

Make it irresistible - Some team building activities are optional, but you still want everyone to show up. You can achieve this by making your team building so much fun and appealing that nobody will want to miss it.

Team Building Tip

Sometimes a bit of escapism is really fun and necessary!  Events where people dress up, learn a back story and  use some cheesy accents level the playing field and create neutral grounds for everyone to just enjoy themselves.  Murder Mystery Events are known to bring the hilarious side out of any person.

Murder Mystery Team Event

Laughing, scheming, and terrible accents are all part of the mystery!

No doubt about it but the deceased has been murdered! You will need to figure out potential motives and try to establish alibis in your effort to find the killer. Only problem is the murderer can and will lie, framing innocent guests with dodgy alibis. You will need to use your wits and detective skills to catch the killer in your midst or try and get away with murder by framing other suspects.

All that is needed from you is a sense of humour! You and your fellow suspects will interrogate each other, taking note of any clues, motives or alibis revealed to the group in order for you to catch a murderer!

Terribly fake International accents and over-actors are most welcome!
