One of the main struggles companies across the world have is breaking down the barriers between colleagues in their workplace, and encouraging more friendly relationships and collaboration. While there is a range of ways to improve this, the best course of action is always to inject a little bit of enjoyment, so to help, here are 5 fun corporate event ideas that might inspire you.
Human Resources Olympics
HR Olympics require team building and physical fitness. Split everyone up into teams and assign them events to compete in. Tatalia Function Centre’s beautiful, lush, green surroundings are the perfect place for any outdoor activity. Take advantage of our 36-hole golf course, play croquet, go bowling, or hold a tennis tournament on one of our nine courts. Aside from facilities we already have at your disposal, there is also a whirlwind of possibilities for your outdoor corporate event, such as sack racing, tug of war, three-legged races, bean bag toss, and so much more. With scorecards compiled to reveal special prizes for the winners – let the games begin!
What could be more fun than having some good old-fashioned trivia within a fully catered function centre? You can host this as part of an evening social that’s aimed at breaking down the walls of colleagues who frequently work on similar projects within your organisation. The concept is simple: break everyone up into teams and see which one gets through the night with the most points under their belt. If you want to spice things up and move away from general trivia, why not pick specific topics or genres, or even print off a series of questions on your business itself. Sometimes the perfect element to clinch the success of a trivia night is to find an MC with humorous inclinations to keep the guests in stitches between questions – any comedians hanging around the office?
Team Building Scavenger Hunt
Want a way to get everyone involved in a fun activity while also learning about the people you work with better? A team-building scavenger hunt is just what you need! It’ll have teams out on the streets navigating their way from challenge to challenge, working together as they go. You can either hide a range of clues or items that need to be collected, or send teams around needing to complete various tasks at known landmarks and locations, taking pictures to prove to the judges! Make sure that there are prizes for the first arrivals at the final destination, but also include a range of refreshments and a party atmosphere once everyone has finished to relax and unwind.
If you like the idea of the team-building potential gained from a scavenger hunt, but have a smaller workforce, or would like to keep everyone in one place, perhaps an escape room challenge would be a more appropriate idea for your corporate event. As the name suggests, teams are locked away in a room with the simple of objective escaping. In a type of physical adventure game, players must solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints, and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Give each team a time on their clock to do as many challenges as possible, and whichever team escapes first wins the prize!
You may have noticed that one trend seems to be emerging from this list – if not, let us spell it out for you: having fun at work is a fantastic way to improve morale and instil a sense of camaraderie within your company! If that sounds like something that would interest you, then hosting a fashion parade is certainly one of the most entertaining ideas on this list. You can turn this into a contest by asking employees to bring in their own outfits for judging, or simply let everyone strut their stuff and see which styles generate the biggest laugh. And there is no better time for the bosses and managers to show they are just human, by getting up on that catwalk to the applause and amusement of their teams.
