Having a well-bonded team that knows its strengths and weaknesses, and likes to work together is a guarantee of success for your organisation. A team that works together towards a common goal and is prepared to take on new challenges together is an asset to the company. That’s why, besides focusing on training and obtaining qualifications, you may want to consider arranging team-building activities. These can range from informal get-togethers to formal sessions led by a facilitator. Whatever you decide, remember the goal is to build a cohesive team.
Why is team building important?
Team building brings people together. By doing collaborative tasks that are unrelated to work, you get a team instead of individuals. From a next-desk colleague, who you do not want not to trouble with your work-related problems, to a coffee-break friend who’s more than happy to help you out in any situation - that’s the goal of team building. Team members, once they get to know each other, become not only more accepting and understanding, but also happier to help each other out, thus making everyone’s work more fun and effective.
Thanks to performing team-bonding activities you improve communication within the team. People who focus only on communicating about work-related tasks may have trouble interacting on other matters, like conflict solving. After they get to know each other and talk to each other in a non-work-related environment, the communication related to work will go more smoothly and confusion-free.
Getting to know people you work with builds trust. People are more open and encouraged to share their weaknesses. If team members trust their colleagues, they know they can share a problem to work it out with the team, instead of breaking their heads over it alone. Even though each person is focusing on their daily tasks, team members that trust each other are more willing to help out if the need arises.
Building self-awareness among team members is another great goal for carrying out team-building activities. Through various activities and tasks, employees learn about what they are good at and what their teammates excel in. Being aware of strengths and weaknesses within the team will make work go smoother because the tasks will be delegated to the right people. This way the work will be more productive and your team will be able to achieve company goals faster and more efficiently.

Downtown Core, the city’s main hive of business activity, is a great district to start your hunt for a team building venue. North-east from Downtown Core lies Rochor, a diverse district full of venues for outside-of-the-box bonding activities. Head to Sentosa Island if you’re looking for a more elegant setting. Here you will find a range of luxurious boats and beachside spaces ideal for a corporate retreat.
Price-wise, hire fees range between S$35 to S$350 per hour or S$100 to S$4080 per session. If you’re looking for cheaper venue hire, the lower prices can be found in Rochor and Geylang Serai, while the Downtown Core and Sentosa Island cater towards larger budgets. Keep in mind that the day of the week may also influence the pricing, with weekend hires being more expensive than weekday ones. (Based on data from Tagvenue.)
It’s important to find a venue that will match the type of activities you are planning for your team. Check the capacity of the venue to make sure everyone will be able to fit in comfortably. Find out if the venue you are planning to hire has all the equipment you need. Look for a venue that will fit your budget and will be easily accessible to everyone participating.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
