When managers and company owners are trying to come up with ways to get the team away from the desks and have fun cost can sometimes be a preventative factor, particularly if you are working from a budget. it is a reality of life in business that sometimes you will have to factor in costs just as much as you factor in fun! That is why we have compiled a list of 3 great team building activities that whilst not too formal, will still provide great fun for your team who will likely see an increase in morale.
1. Laser tag
If you are finding team members wanting to go out paintballing whilst others are a bit apprehensive, then laser tag is a great alternative! This reduces the pain associated with this particular day out without compromising on the fun! Just make sure you hire some robust guns to avoid disappointment.
2. A relaxation/spa day
If you get the feeling that your team are going to prefer a more relaxed team day then an internal/external relaxation spa day is perfect. Sometimes you can get people to come to the office for manicures, massages and pedicures that a lot of your employees will really appreciate. Alternatively, a spa day at a local resort is also a good option.
3. A paddleboarding adventure
If you are looking for a way to get the more adventurous team members out exercising then paddle boarding is a great option! Hiring beginner paddle boards is not overly expensive and it can have a big rate of return on your employee’s morale!

Make sure you get your team’s input
We recommend getting the input of the team to ensure they are on board with what you are trying to do. This way you can tailor the team building day to bring the most value to the people who matter most! Bring a few options to the table and come to a group consensus on what the best day out is.
