Team building events are meant to bring employees together to collaborate and form relationships they otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to on a day-to-day basis. They’re often fun and motivational, focusing on particular skill building activities like the one in this example.
At Glassdoor’s Board Game Tournament, attendees got to interact with people they’d never met before while playing games like Jenga and Boggle. Prizes were awarded and friendly competition created new ways for coworkers to bond. Even if you don’t have a collection of board games available, any form of entertainment that encourages teamwork (like trivia or improv) will do.
