What better way to illustrate efficiency, teamwork, and quick thinking than organizing your own game show? With Rock Paper Team, you can turn your work activities into Jeopardy, Monopoly, Wii Tournaments and more, because they’re not just great corporate activities for high score chasers, but for those who want to create excellent camaraderie in the workplace as well.
Team building events help people work together more efficiently and more successfully; they help people think outside of the box and generate ideas that lead to innovation and problem solving.
With every win for your employees, be it by answering questions correctly or winning prizes, teammates increase their confidence in their choices, which leads to better work practices in the office. Personal triumphs and individualized skill sets will appear with every correctly answered question or challenge, and, ultimately, these competencies will show up in projects, meetings, and new ideas.
Another side effect of game show corporate activities is social interaction–conversations and laughs in a competitive setting are sure to arise, and happy workers make for the best workers. Engage the softer side of people by making the questions personal, such as who has traveled to the most exotic place or what teammate has the best work story. Not only will this allow teammates to get closer, but it will also make for much better water cooler chitchat at break time!
Gone are the days of three-legged races, egg tosses, and pin the tail on the donkey—to engage your team with the kind of innovation that you want showing up in their projects you are going to have to get more creative.
Here’s a list of corporate events that will get your employees out of their computer chairs and connecting with one another:
When you engage your business with fun activities like game shows, you increase learning, collaboration, and the drive to compete – all of which are great to have in the workplace. So, next time you are planning a New York activity, choose a game show format because ultimately, everybody wins.
