How Games and Sport Activities Can Inspire Your Team
Teamwork is a crucial factor that defines the work culture of any organization. While employee engagement and employee experience rank high on HR domains these days, it takes affective planning and continued the effort to build and retain team spirit.
Hectic work schedules, commutation woes, targets, bickering colleagues; all lead to negative vibes and disengagement. To negate this disenchantment, organizations can plan for indoor or outdoor games and sports activities. Although simple and childlike, these activities rejuvenate the workforce, forge team spirit and strengthen camaraderie.
Organizations can choose from team building activities like:
Mystery Box: Each team is given a set of clues and they have to crack the codes to locate a Mystery Box, which is hidden somewhere.
Motorcycle Relay: Similar to a relay race, here too team members have to co-operate and change the tires of motorcycles before they ride again. Ideally, there are four to five members/tire changes before the finish line.
Building Blocks: Each team is given a set of building blocks. All the sets of blocks have to come together to form the entire unit. Hence each team has to get their part right, in order to build the unit.
Sports activities: Employees can be divided into teams to play HeebieJeebie combo, Tug of war, Rope Obstacles, Crossing Burma Bridges apart from regulars like Football, Volleyball, Kho Kho and Cricket.
Other Activities: Campfires, Karaoke challenges, dance faceoffs and even cooking challenges are quite popular as team activities.
Of late weekend corporate outings to camps or resorts have increased. Located away from the hustle and bustle of cities, these camps even offer rock climbing and adventures like Tryoleane traverse, Zorbing, and Paintball. There are numerous such camps offering games and sports activities in Delhi.
So all the Managers out there; try this amazingly simple trick and see the difference!
