There are many different things you can do to try and foster goodwill and good working practices amongst your team. A lot of this can be in the workplace, but there’s a lot you can do outside the office as well. It’s a great way to not only build teamwork, but if you have new team members, it’s a great way of introducing them to your existing team and helping them to bond.

Below, we’ve listed what we think are great team building activities. Take a look and see which one you’d like to take your team to.

Scavenger Hunt

This is a great way to encourage engagement and good communication. You compete against each other in your home town or city solving a series of clues that can be anything from collecting things to taking photographs. You’ll be split into teams and have your own hunt to complete.

Boot Camp

This is a camp with a difference, it’s delivered by an ex-army & royal navy personnel and the whole thing is based on military training. There’s a lot involved with the boot camp and it’s not just the physical side of it, there’s problem solving, escape and evade, combat techniques, survival as well as skirmishing and physical fitness. It’ll break down barriers, help to bond the team and encourage communication.

Sports Day

Sports, athletics and lots of fun alongside healthy competition between your team. You can have an opening ceremony even and there’s plenty of staff to help manage the games and help your teams to have a great day. There’ll even be medals at the end.

It's a Knockout

This is based on a favourite TV show from the 70s, and even if you’re too young to remember it doesn’t matter. This is a great day out with all sorts of live events to take part in with music and plenty of equipment to make the competition lots of fun. There’s water, trees, nature and plenty of outdoor space to keep the fun going with obstacles and slippery wetness. It’s not for the faint hearted.

Escape Edinburgh

For the best in team building activities, escape is one of the best live games you’ll take part in, and it’s perfect for your team. It’s designed for groups of up to 5, and you’ll get locked in a room with 60 minutes to find a way out. It’s a little bit crystal maze, and there’s plenty of puzzles and riddles to work out before you escape. Good problem solving skills, powers of observation and of course, good communication skills will be needed to help your teams escape.
