Indoor Team Building Activities

Our indoor team building activities make good teams great. And great teams achieve great results!

When your team works together effectively, they outperform what anyone could accomplish alone. For this reason, it’s worth investing in building a team that can work in harmony towards your organisational goals. 

How do Indoor Team Building Activities Boost Performance?

Our indoor team building activities develop skills for exceptional performance. Need better resource management? Build a catapult from limited materials in our Construction Project. Better problem solving? Solve a murder mystery in our Detective School. Better communication skills? Talk one another through a building project in our Lego Master Builder exercise… the options are endless!

Fun and interactive, these events create an effective learning environment for your team. Elements of time pressure and competition mimic work stress, allowing you to identify strong and weak points. This lets you capitalise on what your team does well at work and improve problem areas to avoid real-life catastrophe. 

Our indoor activities take place in the comfort of an indoor environment. They’re run on a smaller scale than our outdoor team building events, meaning they can comfortably take place around conference tables or in venues with no outside space. They’re also a sensible choice in colder months.

What are Indoor Team Building Events Best Suited for? 

Indoor events can be standalone team building activities or part of a corporate conference or company fun day. They can be adapted for different time frames, team sizes and indoor venues to suit your available space.

If you don’t have one yet, we’ll find a venue for you free of charge. Or, if you’re arranging a larger event, you might want to check out our event management services to see how we can help. 

Tangible Team Building Results 

We know how important it is for team building events to deliver tangible results. That’s why we’ve used over two decades of experience providing events for international brands, like Vanguard, Tesco and American Express, to develop our unique outcome-focused 5 step team building process. This enables us to identify your desired outcomes, tailor a team building event to meet them, and evaluate your event’s effectiveness against them using Team Impact Reports. 

Reports combine facilitator observations, participants’ surveys, performance data and expert insights so that you can understand your team building outcomes. They also help you to take meaningful steps towards supporting your team in their future development.
