According to Forbes, there are clear benefits to having a strong, unified company culture underlying your business’s operations. Those culture benefits include: contributing to the values of your company, increasing better talent retention, and adding to brand identity. The Society for Human Resource Management shared, “When an organization has a strong culture, three things happen: Employees know how top management wants them to respond to any situation, employees believe that the expected response is the proper one, and employees know that they will be rewarded for demonstrating the organization’s values.”

September is just around the corner, and a lot of companies will be welcoming new hires or reopening their office buildings to their teams, so it’s time to start planning for those exciting days ahead!

Here is some team building event inspiration from our marketplace!

Office Improv

Bring your team closer through laughter.

There is no better way to bond as a team than going outside of your comfort zone and sharing some laughs. Our improv partners offer 1–3 hour workshops to help your team build camaraderie, develop communication skills, have fun, and get to know each other better. They get to understand your company and what your team needs so they can design each workshop specific to your goals.

Food Truck Extravaganza

Our marketplace is filled with food trucks of all cuisines.

Welcome everyone back to the office by hiring some of our food truck partners so everyone can enjoy an outdoor lunch together. With a variety of cuisines and dishes, everyone will find their ideal lunch meal! With great conversations, warm weather, and excitement in the air, this is the perfect way to kick off a return to the office.

Team Axe Throwing

Have some drinks, do some target practice, all in the name of relieving stress.

It’s not everyday that you and your colleagues can bond over target practice, let alone with axes. Axe throwing is a fun and entertaining way to get to know your coworkers outside of the office and promote team bonding. Not to mention, axe throwing seems to be a great way to relieve stress.
