Most of us spend 240 out of the 365 days in the year at work. During our hectic daily hours of meeting deadlines there is very little time to get to know our colleagues on more personal level outside of the office. Taking your staff out of the office environment gives them the opportunity to build relationships and form bonds which will enhance their performance in the office.
Hence the term “Team Building” which has many connotations. Team building exercises are important not only for the immediate experience performed by the team but also for group skills, communication and bonding as a result. The actual activity is merely an means to the end – a high impact learning experience where the individuals are required to complete a task as a team to contribute to a common goal which is exactly what most companies strive to achieve in the office.
The main goals of team building are to improve productivity and motivation.
- Taking the staff out of the office
- Helping to break down barriers
- Improving leadership skills
- Identifying the teams and individual strengths and weaknesses
- Improves problem solving and time management
- Defining objectives and goals
- Improving team moral
- Improving productivity
But most importantly the team must have fun! And this is where we come in…. Especially in winter where outdoor teambuilding activities can be hampered by the notorious “cape of storms” . Here are some of Cape Point Route’s most popular indoor teambuilding events and activities:
Murder Mystery Challenge: Rate: R200 – R350 pp | Duration: 3-4 Hours
Rate: 21- 40 people with an existing script R200 pp
Rate: 21- 40 people with an original script R350 pp
The Murder Mystery Challenge allows members of your corporate team to lose some of their inhibitions and relax more easily as they assume a personality role and problem solving techniques to find out “Who-did-it?!” All delegates receive a character script and tips of what clues you can reveal or conceal to cover-up potential guilt. This is not a supper stage with professional actors… you may just find that the actors from your office have hidden personas as clues are collected, questions asked and performers attempt to prove their own innocence. The group is divided into small teams or departments. The scene is set and there are 4 rounds of clues provided with a few open questions thrown into the mix. Individuals must follow instructions, question other suspects and attempt to reveal the murderer. Read More…
