The autumn months can be a beautiful time of year in Modesto Valley, but it can also be a time when employee morale dips when the summer fun is over. Employees can easily get stuck in ruts and start feeling down.
Why not take advantage of this time of year and plan some fun fall activities to boost team morale?
Here are 4 team building activities you can try.
Office Game Day
Autumn is the perfect time for some cool outdoor fun to build work teams and let off some steam. Invite everyone outside for some sporting themed activities. Try a game of kickball or flag football in a grassy area near the office building. Set up some group games that everyone can participate in, regardless of their physical abilities. Look into fantasy leagues, create competitions that are work related for sales teams or customer service tied to productivity and have a fun lunch award or half day off on a Friday for the winner.
Go on a Field Trip
A surprise group outing to an unknown destination can be a lot of fun and a great way to relieve the stress of the workday. Each manager chooses a date and destination for a day trip and a bus can be chartered to get everyone there. Try to visit nearby state parks, art galleries and museums, amusement centers, farmers markets, and other regional favorites so that everyone has a chance to participate and enjoy the day. Look into local charities and seek out events to have your office volunteer together.
If your workplace is close enough to a waterway, there are great boating tours in the fall months that employees will love. Some even include dinners and dancing. This can be a great way to bring together a small group of employees to thank them for a job well done. Celebrations are an important part of raising employee morale, so think of activities like this for future team building.
Team Happy Hour
Whether it is a trip to a local restaurant or bar, take your team out and show them that you appreciate their hard work day after day. Getting your team together off-site and after hours will give people the opportunity to get to know each other outside of their work roles and will allow for stronger, more personable relationships to grow among coworkers…improving overall productivity.
