The words “team building” often conjure up images of stiff and awkward team members participating in trust falls in the breakroom or rather unwillingly playing a quick icebreaker game around the table in the conference room before a meeting. However, that does not have to be the case. These Bay Area businesses offer team building activities that will get your team moving and competing against the clock or one another. They will make everyone forget it was actually a team building event in which they were participating in the first place.
- The Go Game: This city-wide scavenger hunt game utilizes a custom smartphone app designed for this experience. Your employees will first meet with a game producer who will teach them the rules and divide them into teams. The teams will then compete against one another in a series of challenges, directed by the app, that encourage creative thinking and communication. These activities include a requirement to snap pictures and videos along the way which will be judged at the very end for a chance to win additional points. These games are customized to your team’s skill sets, interests, and needs. The Go Game offers variations of their app for large conferences as well.
