How to organize a team building activity?
Define team building objectives
- Integrate new recruits;
- Solve problems and better manage a crisis;
- Announce and accompany a change;
- Improve collective skills;
- Optimize teamwork;
- Bring employees together and boost communication between different sectors;
- Motivate the team;
- Stimulate creativity and develop new knowledge;
Know the expectations and needs of your team
Before starting to organize a team building activity, it is important to know your team members well in order to adapt the program to their needs. If your team is mainly composed of young adults, you can organize a sports challenge or a scavenger hunt, which requires a good physical condition. If the majority of your employees are telecommuters, opt instead for a digital challenge or games and animations on Zoom to ensure everyone’s presence.
Opt for an original touch
To ensure the involvement of your team members and to arouse their curiosity, it is important to choose an activity that is both adapted and innovative. This touch of originality serves to encourage employee involvement, capture their attention and facilitate the achievement of your objectives. A fun, unpredictable and stimulating activity creates excitement and encourages creativity within the team.
Plan the course of the activity
When planning your activity, remember that it is all about team building, improving communication and fostering a better symbiosis. Therefore, include a debriefing part of the team building to allow all participants to give feedback and express their opinions. This will allow you to learn from their criticism and organize better team building activities in the future.
Follow up on the team building
In order to receive constructive feedback and use it wisely, we advise you to :
- Orient team members through clarifications regarding the purpose of the activity and its impact on the work;
- To clarify the current problems of the company;
- Listening to solutions for improvement;
- Take the time to evaluate the impact of the team building on all participants;
- Organize activities on a regular basis.
