29 Effective Team Building Activities for 2019

As the work-life balance is increasingly skewed towards work, it’s crucial for coworkers to at least get along. A bonded team makes every day at the office more enjoyable, as well as improves productivity, which has a very tangible effect on your bottom line. However, if your team is currently indifferent or standoffish, it can be difficult to get the ball rolling. Traditional team building activities can be boring and employees may not be engaged.

Whether you’re the HR manager, the boss, or even a new hire, it’s worthwhile to encourage team bonding. In this list, we suggest 29 activities that will take help everyone forget about work and have fun, even as they have all the right elements to foster team building. These activities foster resilience, creativity, teamwork, open-mindedness, healthy competition, empathy, and many more critical skills. Some of the activities in this list even enable your team to practise corporate social responsibility and give back to the community.

The list is split into two sections, one for exciting activities and the other for relaxing activities. When considering which activities will be most successful, evaluate the profile of your team. For example, if you have people with disabilities or older people in your team, the more physical activities may pose a challenge to them. Activities involving certain food and drinks should be avoided if some team members cannot partake. A well-planned team building session is one where everyone is included and comfortable.
