When choosing a team building activity, first consider what your team enjoys. Are they into crime mysteries? Are they mostly trivia buffs? Are they game show junkies? If you’re not sure, ask them for input. Or you might have a specific purpose in mind like improving project management, so you’ll want to select a game that helps build that skill.
Consider the different personality types of your team members and try to organize a game that allows both introverts and extroverts to participate equally.
Incentivize the experience by awarding prizes during the game.
Be sure to ask your employees for feedback following the activity and determine whether it’s something you might want to incorporate into your plans on a regular basis.
Some vendors offer self-hosted options, which include an instruction guide, so employers can run the game on their own time. These options are usually cheaper than professionally hosted games.
If you’re planning to hire a vendor, ask for an online demo of the game before making your decision.
Like all virtual events, if your team is spread out across different time zones, select a date and time that works best for everyone or plan multiple events so that all team members can participate.
