When going through the list of corporate team building activities that HR figures is sufficient for the job, we at Zero Gravity would suggest penciling in a trip to our center in Minneapolis. Why? Let’s look this over a moment and get a better grasp on the situation.
Not the Usual
More often than not, the go-to scenario for corporate event ideas is seeing when happy hour starts at the nearest bars. If your teams are in a rut and so thoroughly predictable that the corner sports bar blocks off tables at the same time every week or every month like clockwork and has the tabs already pre-calculated before the first team members walk in, it’s time to shake things up a little. Get the blood pumping with some physical activity that ranges from casual and playful to fast-paced and hard-core.
Ignite Competitive Spirit
It’s one thing to have in-house competitions for sales numbers or cases handled. But it’s something else for a team to have the sort of swagger that can only come from demonstrating their competence outside of the cubicles. Find out whether it’s the sales team or the IT guys who can claim to be the “killer elite” in a laser tag skirmish.
See if your accounting department can rack up numbers or if your CSRs give “service with a smile” in a trampoline dodgeball bracket. We have the playground and we’re more than happy to help you come up with the games for team-building events.
Blow Off Steam
Maybe it’s been a rough month, or even a rough quarter, and everybody’s on the sort of edge that can get ugly fast. Not all team-building ideas have to be about building fire and grit.
Sometimes, it’s about giving people the chance to let their hair down, kick off their shoes, and remember why they hang around with their colleagues beyond the paycheck and free coffee. A moment’s respite might be just what your teams need to renew their sense of purpose and corporate identity.
No matter if it’s because the team needs a little exercise, or they need the extra little spring in their step from proving they’re the best in the building, Zero Gravity can help make it happen.
