Team building is an essential practice in today’s busy and intense corporate world. As we spend more and more time in front of computers and phones, we spend less and less time with people. And business is all about people. Like no other time in history people are required to work in teams. So having a cohesive team of people, all striving toward a common goal is important. Enter team building and specifically, team building scavenger hunts.
But first let’s focus on team building. Team building programs can bring a number of benefits to corporate groups, as long as the program is selected carefully and executed correctly.
- Relationship-builder: The primary purpose of team building is to strengthen relationships between individuals. This is best done in a face-to-face shared experience.
- Communication: People who like each other will communicate more with each other. Every organization we are in touch with stresses the importance of communication, and team building events can trigger this practice.
- Employee retention: Employees will stay in workplaces that they like. Good team building activities make them feel rewarded and perhaps this could be enough for an employee to decide to stay at your company and you know that an employee retained is very valuable.
Why team building scavenger hunts?
Our scavenger hunts have been carefully crafted and re-jigged many times over the past 20 years. The reason for this is that we want the scavenger hunt to be a challenge of relevant business skills that people use on a day-to-day basis in the workplace. Skills like prioritization, assigning roles on the team, having a strategy, being creative, communicating, staying ahead of the competition. Teams that can successfully execute these skills will be the most successful in our team building scavenger hunts.
