Office team building activities

Unless they’re hugely behind with the times, every organisation knows that team cohesion is integral to every office environment. After all, employees are the vital cogs in the big corporate machine. When they work together, with each other, and they do it well, that is when businesses achieve their full potential. Office team building activities can help make that happen. But how? Let’s look below or if you’d prefer to seize the moment and talk to one of our events experts then why not pick up the phone and call us on 0800 083 1172, we’d love the chance to talk to you and tell you how we can help your company; you can even get in touch by filling in our ever so quick contact form and we’ll call you at a time to suit you best.

How office team building activities benefit your business

Fun corporate event ideas

Sure, it’s great to get everyone together and break the ice a little bit. But that’s not all that office team building activities have to offer. Effective events can do much, much more for your business.

Before we look at events that can help your company reach its full corporate events potential, let’s break the business benefits right down. Don’t tell mama, but here’s the Accolade family recipe for the ‘Ultimate Workforce’.

Open a can of communication – Away from the rigid office routine, delegates are encouraged to talk to team members they perhaps wouldn’t normally speak with. Working through tasks together insists upon staff developing effective communication methods.

Sieve through some fine-tuned skills – At Accolade, no two team building activities need be the same. Your team will master skills relevant to their role within your organisation.

Add a few lbs of productivity – One of the main aims of team building is for delegates to learn how to work together. With communication enhanced and skills smashed too, productivity can only soar.

Mix in a good measure of motivation – It’s all systems go. Staff feel comfortable communicating with one another and completing the task in hand. Confident, valued employees, with clear direction, naturally experience a boost in motivation.

Bake until team roles and relationships are perfectly golden

Bake Off

Transferrable team processes. Check! With roles established, these now tried and tested working methods will be adapted and adopted in the office. Staff collaboration and trust across the team is invaluable. So, there’s your recipe. And during Accolade office team building activities, that’s when you’ll get your hands on all the ingredients.
