Effective teamwork is paramount to the success of any organisation. It fosters higher productivity and creates a happier organisational culture.
The benefits of team-building activities have been well documented, which is why multinationals such as Google, Apple and Disney include such exercises in their training programs.
While traditional obstacle rope courses and trust falls are still popular, many organisations are looking for new ways to motivate and inspire staff.
Some companies offer everything from blindfolded driving and city-wide treasure hunts, to 007-themed scenarios and quirky flash mob exercises.
At Race Party, we offer fun slot car racing challenges for corporate team-building, as well as facilities for trackside meetings.
Our races allow participants to compete as individuals alongside other players, and as individuals contributing to a team of two or more players. The game allows players to interact with each other in close proximity while working towards improving their racing technique, lap records and overall speed.
Here are three benefits to engaging your team in a corporate challenge at Race Party:
1. Enhance communication
By removing employees from the office and putting them in a new environment where they must work together towards a common goal, they are forced to communicate more efficiently. This, in turn, breaks down barriers between staff. A harmonious team with open communication channels is more likely to be efficient and productive.
2. Improve morale and motivation
Doing something fun is the best way to boost workplace morale and to remind employees about the importance of building and maintaining relationships. Team-building activities encourage employees to bond and connect. Also, when employees exceed at activities, their confidence is boosted, as is their motivation in the workplace.
3. Increase productivity
Team-building activities are designed to enhance an individual’s problem-solving skills, while empowering them to contribute to achieve common goals. As employees learn to work together effectively, they also work more efficiently. Each team member’s strengths and weaknesses often become apparent during the exercises, which come in handy when allocating work based on team member abilities. Lastly, team-building activities often focus heavily on being creative to solve a problem, which drives innovation.
