What are some engaging group activities for my team?

There are several ways to show appreciation for your hardworking staff. Whether it’s organising a potluck party at work, hiring a yacht for a sailing adventure, or booking a dance studio for a fun dance session, the key is to make sure participants are eager to join in. Make it more enticing by sending out calendar invites and discussing the activities during daily meetings to encourage attendance. Incorporate snacks, games, and icebreaker activities to ensure everyone feels included, regardless of how new they are to the workplace.

What are some activities that work for small groups?

For small teams, consider organising weekly activities as they are easier to plan. Opt for shorter activities or ones that promote your employees’ mental and physical well-being, such as walks at MacRitchie Nature Trail or releasing stress in a rage room after a challenging week or quarter. Consider organising rooftop dinners, happy hour gatherings, or private dining parties to reward your employees. To improve creativity, try a crafting class, foster brainstorming and collaboration skills, and plan challenging activities like escape rooms and scavenger hunts.

What are some budget-friendly team building activities in Singapore?

Singapore offers plenty of budget-friendly options if you want to strengthen your team’s bond without breaking the bank. Consider organising a beach clean-up at East Coast Park, where teams can work together to positively impact the environment while fostering teamwork and camaraderie. Alternatively, you can plan a DIY cooking class at the office, where teams can showcase their culinary skills and creativity within a limited budget. Another option is to organise a scavenger hunt around Singapore’s landmarks, which is affordable and a fun way to explore the city while completing team challenges.Β
