Employee engagement is a constant and on-going process.
One of the most common questions we get asked is: How often should we organize team-building events?
There’s no one answer for this. It depends on how your employees are engaged, currently. And the goals you wish to achieve.
If you think you and your employees would benefit from a team building event right now, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t organize one.
Are you keen on organizing a team building event for your employees?
But worried about the weather being a spoilsport?
The best way to organize a team building event, when it’s too hot or raining unpredictably, is doing it indoors.
An indoor team building activity is fun, easy to organise and just as effective.
Not sure if indoor activities are right for you?
Here are 3 solid reasons why you’re sure to benefit from indoor team building events
1. Don’t let weather spoil the fun
Outdoor events are fun, but practically not a good idea during harsh weather.
Picture this. It’s the monsoon season.
You’ve organised an outdoor team building event. The venue is a few kilometres away from your office. How will everyone reach there?
You have to arrange for transport to avoid inconvenience. Not everyone has a car. Some may not be comfortable driving to the venue.
An outdoor event means that there is a 100% risk of rains ruining the event any time.
You need to be extra careful with your sound system. You cannot put up a projector. Or make presentations. The equipment is expensive and there is no way you can risk taking it out in the rains. Communicating your message effectively without this is not very easy.
The summer season, when the sun is harsh, has it’s own list of problems.
Do you really want your employees to sweat it out in the sun?
Physical activity outdoors in summers will tire them out. Imagine your employees being all sweaty and uncomfortable after the team building event.
You don’t want that, do you?
What do you do, then? Give up your plans for conducting a team building activity for your employees? Or wait for suitable weather?
A better idea is to organize team building events indoors. It’s simpler than it sounds. We’ve done it for many clients. And they’ve all have loved it.
2. Choose from a wide range of activities
Indoors is safe and convenient. It also gives you the option to plug in devices like a laptop, projector screen and loud speakers without too much trouble.
This also opens up a lot of opportunities. We’ve cherry-picked some team building activities that work best indoors. These work best when the weather isn’t on your side.
You can organise simulation-led team building activities like Infinite Loop or Peak Performance. Easily organise board games like Power Play and Fresh Biz. Or music-based team bonding activities like Drum Circle and Harmonica Symphony. Explore the complete list of indoor team building activities by d’frens here.
3. Save time and money
If you’ve ever organized a team building event before, you’ll know that the most difficult part if finding a suitable venue.
It’s time-consuming and expensive.
Surprisingly, for indoor team building activities, you don’t need to hunt for a venue. You can easily do it in your office itself.

They say, where there is a will there is a way.
