How To Spice Up Your Team Building Activities
If you’re anything like us, when you think of team building activities, you probably think of those cringy ice breakers your boss forces you to do once in a blue moon. You know the ones. The marshmallow and toothpick tower-building game? Yeah... We’d rather not. Wild On Waiheke Activities take place at Wild Estate, and we take team building to a whole new level. We’ve got a whole bunch of team activities that people actually want to do and will genuinely bring your team closer together. So, if you’re looking to add a little bit of flavour to an otherwise bland corporate bonding exercise, the team at Wild On Waiheke activities are here to help.
If you’re one of those people who believes a quick game of Two Truths And A Lie is good enough for a corporate bonding activity, we’re here to tell you that it just isn’t. Here are a few fast facts about team building activities that might convince you to put a little more effort into your planning.
Feelings of employee isolation reduce productivity by up to 21%. If your team doesn’t feel connected, they’re not going to be as productive; it’s as simple as that. There’s been too much isolation in the world these last couple of years, so get your team together for an unforgettable day at Wild Estate with our Wild on Waiheke Activities. We’re here to help you reignite that team connection.
Socialising with team members outside of work improves communication patterns by more than 50%. Talking about last night’s episode of The Bachelor around the bubbler only does so much for fostering communication in the workplace. You need to give your team a chance to get to know each other in a less formal environment… like over a few rounds of archery, for example.
Women with a best friend at work are 2x as likely to be fully engaged at work. That’s right, a girl’s work wife is important for keeping her engaged while at work. According to a 2018 study, 63% of female employees with a work best friend reported being twice as engaged at work compared to the 29% who didn’t have a work wife. So how are you going to foster those friendships? Not with a dull icebreaker, that’s for sure.
