Did you know that you can actually have a ton of fun while you’re at work? Stop shaking your head, because it is true. All you need to do is try out the most fun team building and bonding activities in the workplace and you can actually enjoy yourself while at work. Now, if you have a normal job, you are probably bored out of your mind most of the time. However, you don’t have to be stuck like this all the time.
Bonding with your teams increases productivity
If you can just become more engaged in certain activities, you will start to focus more on your work, on your team and be more productive while enjoying doing it. There are many activities of this type out there that you can engage in. An added perk of this kind of company team bonding is that you get to know the people you work with on a more personal level. This makes communication easier and more effective too. This increased communication means that your capacity to do team activities is increased, and you will work together far better and smoother.
Lunch break is the best place to start
These activities don’t even have to be games. Something as simple as getting lunch together with the rest of your team is a form of corporate team bonding that anyone can do like karting. Lunch break is one of the best times of the day for the working crowd, and with good reason. It allows a mental respite from the troubles of the work day. Instead of sticking to your same old table and eating alone, try to do it with your teammates and employees. If you are a manager, don’t hold yourself aloof from the employees. Get to know them on a personal level by grabbing a bite to eat at their table. This doesn’t have to be every day either. Once a week is more than enough.
There are some games you may have heard or seen your kids playing. Strangely enough, the older you get, the more you seem to grow back into the mindset of a child. Playing a game like Guess The Song can be incredibly fun and will draw your team much closer together. All you need to do is get one person to start humming a tune, and let the rest of the team try to guess what song it is. It is a form of charades, and will lead to a lot of shouting and laughing. Laughter is an extremely powerful tool in causing a team to draw together as one unit.
