Team building has an image problem. You're probably imagining a dull, awkward set of games and icebreakers where once again you have to hear Brenda's 2 Truths and 1 Lie.
The truth of the matter is that not all team building activities are created equal and team buliding (the good ones anyway) come with a wide variety of benefits to your workplace.
According to Officevibe statistics, 42% of employees don't feel like they're adequately compensated for their work, which can lead to resentment and a negative view of your organization and 1 in 4 employees don't feel like their organizations celebrate accomplishments or learnings.
It also found that 75% of employees who leave their jobs or display low levels of engagement say that it's due in part to their managers or broader company leadership.
Officevibe data has also shown that 47% of employees regularly feel overwhelmed, with an unfortunate 26% feeling like their managers aren't concerned with the state of their mental health. Nobody's well-being should be forgotten, or even an afterthought.
It's also important to note that 70% of people wished they could actually spend more time with their managers to create a stronger connection with them and with the organization.
So with employee satisfaction in dumps, how do you plan team building that actually works? Forte Entertainment have some ideas for you.
Do you have an active workforce or a lifestyle brand? Zorbing is the ultimate sport for everyone to get stuck in and have a good laugh. It's varied, inclusive and incredibly silly.
We find that zorbing is a fantatsic way to bring a team closer due to its absudity and positive influence. Even though we emulate games like football, we find that zorbing is a great leveller of skill and allows for everyone to be a part of the action.
This strengthens bonds between employees and managers (as you get to crash into each other!) and improves mental health with plenty of healthy fun.
