According to a 2012 Wakefield Research Study, almost one-third of office workers in the United States dislike team-building activities. This means that outings and activities can be counterproductive if not executed properly. Fortunately, an entire industry has grown around corporate team-building, so it’s easier than ever for executives and high-ranking managers to plan successful team outings.
Coordinate employee volunteer activities to encourage your team to give back to the community. Research suggests that participating in volunteer activities outside of the office can help employees re-energize and re-focus at work. Fitness activities or competitive sports are both excellent team-building outings, as they reduce stress, foster team spirit, and communicate your organization’s commitment to employee health. Professional development activities such as a leadership coaching seminar or training workshop can foster learning and professional development, both of which can help your employees feel like they are part of an organization that cares about their future.
