The current situation related to COVID-19 requires a lot of adaptation. We had to innovate this year for the Summer Team Building activity and came out with a new idea that accommodated the new social distancing restrictions. Organizing a virtual activity was the better option for this event!
Description of the event:
This year team building was a fresh way of spending time with our colleagues. The participants were separated by different groups that played a virtual game hosted by an energetic animator.
One of the biggest pluses of the event was to have audio and video contact with our colleagues and to see each over without the mask. Also, the games where dynamic and motivated us to be collaborative in completing the various tasks. In the same time, the tasks required different set of skills from singing, drawing, movie knowledge allowing everybody to show that they are an asset to the team.
We took part in different activities, from music trivia, guess the movie based on a small video, guess the songs from 2 mixed songs, guess the celebrities from 2 mixed persons, to drawing famous paintings from the eyes of a child, we also had funny and interesting team names.
Moreover, the team captains were dynamically changed during the game by the moderator, so everybody had the chance to be in the spotlight. The game had a great design to revive the team spirit, which is more than ever challenged by the times we are going through!
We received a positive feedback from the participants! People had fun, they experienced something new and challenging. They also really appreciate the fact that the company provide them an activity outside the outside the workspace.
