Indoor Training Activities

When most people think of corporate training events that are designed to help employees work together as a cohesive unit, they often think of paintballing in muddy fields, quad biking, white water rafting and other rugged activities. However, companies that specialise in team building in New Zealand have many alternative activities on offer that could prove to be more relevant to the specific needs of your organisation. If you are looking for more cerebral challenges with which to motivate your staff, the following activities are well worth considering:

  1. Creating vintage-style posters outlining the achievements of your company since its inception. This is a fun activity that will not only encourage your employees to develop a sense of pride in the company that they work for but will also help them to learn how to work together on a project. Negotiations as to what should be included on the posters can take place before the actual creative process starts and each team member can have their say as to the style of artwork that is used once these negotiations have concluded.
  1. Putting together a display that includes all the posters made by the various groups participating in the training event. This activity will help people to work as part of a larger team rather than just in small units. Whilst they may never actually have to work with such a large group in the office, the relationships they forge during this activity should help them to feel like they play an important role in the larger corporate family.
  1. Building and racing a remote controlled car. It is a good idea to break up the day with a fun activity that allows groups to compete with each other for a prize. Encouraging cooperation between workers is usually a key goal of the team building events organised by specialist providers but it is also a good idea to give individuals the opportunity to shine at particular activities too. The sense of self-worth that a job well done can give to participants will help them to perform to the best of their abilities when they return to the workplace.
  1. Creating a short film. Each group can choose a particular product or service offered by your company and create a promotional video to extoll the virtues of whichever one they pick. This activity could be combined with the creation of vintage-style posters that list the key points the film addresses. The more involved each person becomes with these projects, the easier it will be for them to maintain enthusiasm and make the most of the time that they have with their co-workers.

The above are just suggestions to consider when organising a training day for your employees. If you take a look at the websites of reputable providers, you should find a good selection of activities forteam building in New Zealand that you might also like to incorporate into your corporate events and that have proved to be highly effective for many organisations.
