If your company has recruited a new employee, it can be difficult to welcome them into the team without introducing them to each member of staff one by one. A great way to make them feel welcomed is to arrange a team building event. By doing this, everyone can have fun and get to know the new member of the team without being obliged to sit in a circle and awkwardly slur a sentence about themselves.
A team building event that we love is Lights, Camera, Action! It sounds exactly like the movies, and you’d be right, it is. It’s a film making team building challenge which allows the whole team to put their creative heads on and produce a visual masterpiece that even Stephen Spielberg would be proud of.
This is such a great idea for your new team member too, who can put together a short film which could explain a bit about them in a fun and light-hearted way. By adding special effects, costumes and props, everyone gets to dress up together so no one feels left out or looks silly (although, we can’t promise the latter).
This event will allow your team to leave the four-walls of the office for half a day, yet still be able to express their skills through creativity. By showing their creative skills you can see just how they can use these in their day-to-day tasks in the office.
