How to Pick The Best Team Building Activity For Your Cambridge Team

One of the most important things to consider when deciding what event is best for you is the makeup of your team. Different groups will have different preferences, and there is even research pointing to markedly different attitudes to team building between generations. Ensuring that it’s something all of your team can enjoy, and participate fully is crucial.

Indoor Or Outdoor Team Activities In Cambridge

New England is beautiful, there’s no getting away from that. So there is definitely a huge appeal to getting out of the office for the day and enjoying some of what is on offer out in the wilderness. Having said that, in office events, or events that come to your office in the form of escape room vans, or game vans, can be an exciting alternative, meaning you don’t have to compromise on experience just because you’re not hitting the road!

For some events, you may have a higher focus on bonding, in which case ‘adventure’ is often the name of the game. However if an educational experience is required, then sometimes an indoor team activity will allow for more structure and focus on your core objectives.

Team Bonding Or Team Development Activities

Teams that get on well together are more likely to stay together. That sounds obvious, but many corporate incentive schemes completely miss that point and fail to deliver on keeping people’s work relationships friendly and positive.

Bonding activities are specifically designed to be more relaxed, and less formal and educational, than other team building events, and as a result can really help people let their hair down, and share some informal moments of fun with their colleagues

Having said that, another extremely important area for maintaining satisfied employees is in the personal development arena. A management day where staff get the opportunity to take charge and lead projects can help those who wish to develop in that way feel valued, and help you pick out your future rising stars!
