8 Fun Indoor Corporate Team Building Events Your Whole Company Will Enjoy

Posted by Jake Mandel on Feb, 28, 2019

Winter is in full force in North America, and while we will soon be approaching spring there are no signs of it getting any warmer anytime soon. If your organization is planning a corporate team building event then perhaps an indoor program could be the best choice for you.

Team outings can bring your business a number of benefits. They are a great way to bring your team together, encourage staff members to bond, reduce employee stress, improve collaboration in the office and to give them the chance to get to know each other outside of the office. 

However, the weather can be unpredictable. In fact, there’s not many things worse than getting your employees excited for their yearly team event, only for them to find out later that it’s cancelled because of too much rain or a snow storm.

Whether you are planning a team event this spring or summer, or perhaps you are getting a head start for your corporate team building event next winter, an indoor event is a great choice. Not only are they just as fun and great for professional development, they are also a fantastic way to ensure the weather won’t put a dampener on your event.

Teambonders has created a list of eight fun indoor corporate team building events everyone in your organization will love, no matter the time of year:

1 - Espionage Suite Hotel Escape Game

Escape rooms require leadership skills, teamwork, logic, and patience if your team is to succeed. So, what is it all about? Imagine your corporate identity blended with a realistic, cyber espionage crisis and you're in the thick of it.

Utilizing actual hotel rooms and hiding the game in plain sight makes this the most unique escape game available today. Nowhere else can your entire group play the exact same scenario against one another, simultaneously. You will have 60 minutes to save the company - is your organization up to the challenge?

Suggested time: 2 hours
Group sizes: 6-600+
Suggested team size: 6-8

2 - Classic Game Shows: The Feud

Complete with authentic visuals, sound effects and music, classic game shows are a great way to have fun and improve collaboration within your teams.

Teambonders has taken a survey of 100 people, and have compiled the ‘top’ answers to a multitude of interesting pop culture and general knowledge questions - we can even include some about your own company for some added bite.

There are two different ways to play and we can engage hundreds of participants at the same time. Can your employees uncover the most popular answers and bank the points?

Suggested time: 1.5-2 hours
Group sizes: 12-1,000+
Suggested team size: 6-8

3 - Minutes to Win it

This event is perfect for groups of all sizes, and can be played pretty much anywhere - just choose the location that’s most convenient for your organization.

Unlike the television program - in which only one or two contestants are challenged at a time - our customized edition promotes an all-inclusive atmosphere. This event requires entire teams to work together to solve a multitude of collaborative challenges.

The teams involved will compete head-to-head in a wide variety of light physical, cerebral and specifically created team tasks. The fast-paced program is guaranteed to evoke laughs as teams race to ‘win it’.

Suggested time: 2-2.5 hours
Group sizes: 8-1,000+
Suggested team size: 8-10

4 - Live Chef Challenges

Fancy cooking up a storm with your team building event this year? Our Custom Corporate Live Chef Challenge will see teams work together to successfully produce masterpieces in a timed Iron Chef-style culinary competition.

Once we reveal the "secret ingredient", each team will be charged to produce an appetizer, main entrée, and dessert to present to a panel of expert VIP judges.

The event, which can be hosted virtually anywhere, has been designed to help foster great working relationships and unleash inspiration in the workplace - no matter your teams creative abilities or flair in the kitchen.

Suggested time: 2-2.5 hours
Group sizes: 8-250
Suggested team size: 6-8

5 - Monte Carlo Casinos

This even is specifically designed for the card sharks and skill-games enthusiasts in everyone.

For this even Teambonders will supply and execute an assortment of interactive game stations, including: black jack, roulette, texas hold 'em, wheel of fortune and more. Bring our the inner James Bond in your employees and plan an afternoon or evening of casino-style action.

Suggested time: 2+ hours

Suggested team size: n/a

6 - Wellness: Music Masters Lessons

This program brings the benefits of music to your company, in a group environment. Your employees will bond with each other by playing the instrument of choice together. By the end of the program, they will all play a song as a band.

Suggested time: 1 hour a week for 9/12 weeks or a 2 hour event

Team’s from your company will work together to build an actual working bicycle that will get donated to the cause of your choice. Working together, teams will conquer this extremely out-of-the-ordinary building challenge.

Not only will your employees grow as a team and individuals, at the end of the program they’ll be able to provide something back to the community and make a positive contribution as a corporate team.

Suggested time: 2-3 hours
