  • 5 Great ideas for your next team building event

Team building and engagement is so important to any workplace. Team building exercises are essential for developing group skills, team bonding, upholding company values and most importantly communication both internally and externally. 

It is important to really think about what you would like to achieve from these team days, what your team members will love, and what will really get your team engaged, energised and raring to put into practice the skills they have learnt during this time. 

Sheer Edge is on hand to help you make the right decision, we have partnered up with some amazing Team Building suppliers to make sure you have everything you need for your event. 

Our top 5 choices for team building activities for 2022 are;

Corporate social responsibility day 

 A complete bespoke day tailored to you. There are many venues and locations that include a variety of activities, what about building something incredible for one of the species at your chosen animal sanctuary location. Your teams will work together on the assigned project and at the end of the session you will see the finished creation put in the animal enclosure and watch the animal’s reaction, will they eat, play or destroy your efforts?! Port-lympne-team-building

 This is team building with a true purpose, providing you with an amazing event, the animals with have something that will benefit them for a long time to come, and something you and your team will never forget.  

The idea of a corporate social responsibility day is not just for an unforgettable corporate away day, but to provide enrichment items (like feeding devices and enclosure furniture) that animals would not normally have access to as animal staff are unavoidably limited by time and resource availability. 

Or maybe you would like to look at an event that offers the opportunity to give something back to your nominated charity of the year, or indeed looking at a team event that can support your local community or sustainability goals as a company?Port-lympne-team-building Any corporate social responsibility days can help to fulfil your business corporate social responsibility aims, allowing companies to publicly demonstrate their commitment to their own ethos and values while giving something back. 

 

Driving experiences

We absolutely love these types of team building activities, although you are not always together on the activity, you will be working as a team to get a great finishing result and build a fun relationship with your team.  

 

Retreats 

Relaxing Spa treatmentIt’s important to keep in mind that not all team building needs to be adrenaline fuelled or competitive.

Retreats can be a great way of rewarding your team and involving some team building that everyone can do at their leisure.

Imagine taking your team away for a relaxation weekend, somewhere remote away from the hustle and bustle of day to day living, where we can organise a vast array of activities, such as, Boating, Hiking, Yoga, mountain biking, healthy cooking with top chefs, archery, clay shooting and much more.  Team-building-outdoors

We work with some amazing venues in breath-taking locations, offering plenty of varied activities to re-energise, practice mindfulness, get out in the great outdoors and work on your teams inner core and wellbeing. An experience your team will thank you for for weeks, months and years to come. 

 

Indoor activities  

These are great for when you cannot leave the office, but would really like some time for your team to engage, build relationships and have some fun. Sheer Edge have some superb suppliers that can help you host your next event. Our firm favourite has to be CSI – each team will work together to solve the motive, gather physical evidence and try to solve who did it – in the fastest time. This activity really gets those brains working and you really see the team spirit come alive. Another firm favourite – it can be played throughout the day so great if you are struggling for time to get everybody in the same location – The Apprentices! Throughout the day the team are given tasks and challenges to complete, the winning team receives a fun prize and the losers…” You’re Fired”! 

Virtual Team Building  

Most team building activities are very versatile and can now be brought to you in the comfort of your office or home virtually, from bake offs, chocolate making, murder mysteries, escape room style virtual events, to virtual tea parties, cocktail and mocktail making, wine, gin or whisky tasting events, sing offs and danceathons. The virtual world really is endless, if there is something you are thinking of doing, let us know and we will try our hardest to make it happen for you.

If your team have been tirelessly working from home, we all know how lonely this can be so it can be nice to organise a monthly incentive/reward and plan to have a little bit of fun on screen together as well as sending them some bespoke kits out to accompany the virtual event. It is proven that planning regular virtual team building activities not only increases motivation and productivity, it provides positive reinforcement, this behaviour is key, keep reminding them you are a team and together you can achieve anything.  

So, whether you want to inspire, excite, motivate, communicate or just have fun, there is definitely something out there for you and your team.
