35 Fun Team Building Activities To Engage Your Staff

The BBC published an article last week about why corporate team-building events can be terrible and they raised a valid point. But can you blame an employee for showing zero interest in a team building activity like spitting soda into each other’s mouths? It’s certainly a unique idea but even in a highly engaged company like itris, I don’t think anyone would be too keen!

Despite the slight groan you might hear when you utter the words ‘team building event’, they are definitely worth incorporating into your employee engagement strategy. Improved communication between employees and departments, boosted productivity and increased engagement are just a handful of benefits your company can reap by organising team building activities for your staff.

We understand that it can be difficult to select the perfect event for your employees to get involved with as everyone and every business is different, but here are some fun team building ideas which appeal to the masses.
