Are you and your teams missing out on those lunchtime catch-ups, after-work drinks, or coffee shop chats?
Not to worry, here are seven fun team-building activities for you to reconnect socially
Your team members want it back. You want it back. Without a social network to engage with off-screen and everything closed, this can greatly affect your colleagues’ stress levels and wellbeing. The pandemic has meant we have needed to adapt dramatically to a new way of living and working. Taking a break from our screens is important. People who have previously worked in open-plan offices are more likely to struggle with their mental health from burnout in all-day virtual team meetings while working from home.
Did you know that socialising between team members improves communication patterns by more than 50%?
Top ten countries investing in team-building activities:

- South Africa
- New Zealand
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
Team-building activities can have a dramatic positive impact on your employees
The idea is to give your employees opportunities to socialise outside of work. Team-building activities are proven to help company managers learn the best way to communicate with their employees. The findings from these morale-boosting activities will prove invaluable when you need to get across key information to an employee, armed with the knowledge of how to best reach out with them and engage.
Knowing the different personality types is key to elevated team performance and being familiar with and understanding your team’s dynamics helps improve your company’s performance over time. Team building helps employees working in different departments all get to know each other and come together. With enough support, communication, and team-building exercises, virtual teams can out-perform in-person ones.
