3 Team Building Activities You Must Try

Team building exercises are an important way to bring any workplace together – the key to successful business is not only to teach your employees how to work as one, but to also make sure they feel valued. Our meeting rooms in Essex are the perfect setting should you want to break away from the same old activities you’ve tried before – and thanks to our comfortable rooms, the team building doesn’t have to be confined to an hour or two in the office boardroom.

Treasure Hunts

You may remember finding clues and treats from your school years, but treasure hunts for modern businesses are a wonderful way to bring your team together and to encourage critical thinking. Leadership skills can be developed and identified, not forgetting true teamwork and delegation of tasks. In 2019 hunts have gone far beyond traditional pen and paper affairs – tablet based GPS treasure hunts are all the rage. If you are looking for a team building event your team will talk about for months, then why not contact our partner KDM Events? Our Essex hotel can be the base for your hunt before, during and after and your exercise can venture out onto the grounds or into wider Colchester – meetings like this aren’t restricted!

The Qube

Do you want your team building exercises to be tense? Challenging? Full of drama? Then you need The Qube. This activity will see you work in teams to take on not just one challenge, but a whole series of fast-paced and demanding problems. You’ll be able to see the true nerve and determination of your team – as well as how well they think together. Afterwards, why not enjoy a well-deserved drink in the bar to congratulate your team mates on their achievements – our event partner Chillisauce can provide everything you need from lighting to the 3m x 3m inflatable cube itself.

Cocktail Creation

This activity is perfect for teams of two or three people, as it allows them to input their own ideas and preferences whilst working together to make an edible drink! Alcohol can be optional, but the trick is to make sure that all elements of the drink work together for the best result. A real metaphor for working life, wouldn’t you say? Hire out a function room or take over the bar – this is one fun way to team build with your colleagues, and it’s even better when you get to name the drinks too. Some businesses like to have an overall winner or rank the drinks in order – it’s up to you entirely.

From golfing activities to quizzes, outdoor Olympics and more traditional team building activities, we are able to cater for them all. Find out more today.
