How to Inject Fun Into the Workplace

Team building is very important for uniting coworkers to work together better more cohesively. It also has been proven to boost morale and to increase productivity. Finding ways to make team building exercises to be engaging has never been easier with the help of AdVenture Games, Inc. Here are some suggestions for injecting fun into your workplace with ease.

Ice Breakers

Team building games and activities don’t have to focus on work Some icebreakers can help the team to learn more about themselves with a game such as Two Truths and a Lie. By allowing your staff to feel like they know each other better improves the chance that they will work better together too.

Ask Questions

When you’re easing into a meeting, ask each team member a question that makes them think. Every new employee can even be asked a silly question that allows the team to learn something fun about them and allowing them to feel like a part of the team from the beginning.

Lip Sync Battle

Split the office into teams and have them pick the songs ahead of time. They will put on a show and then a vote occurs. This is fun and is guaranteed to bring your staff together.

Do Activities Together

Volunteering your time is a great way to unite a team. Partner with a non-profit at the holiday time to do good together and to grow as a team at the same time.

Do a Scavenger Hunt

AdVenture Games, Inc. offers a team building game called National Treasure. This activity has teams racing against the clock to earn points as they solve puzzles and find the treasure before the time is up. Teams work together to decipher these codes on landmarks in the physical world around your workplace. Each clue leads the team to a new location. This game requires teamwork, communication, and strategic planning. National Treasure is beneficial for teams that work together to meet deadlines regularly as it is a fun example of this in the real world.

Trivia Night

Split up your employees in teams and have a trivia event. The questions can be related to their job or just for fun. Whatever questions are asked, the experience will allow the team members to have fun together.

Create a Memory Wall

This allows people to bond and feel positive about their workplace. Allow team members to add memories to the wall, whether pictures or post-its. Some topics can include my first day, lunch hour or work travel.

Holiday Decorating Contest

With the holidays come stress, but a festive place to work in may help relieve some of that. Have your teams work together to decorate the space and have a cubicle decorating contest with a hefty prize such as a close parking spot or maybe an extra break each day.
