Team building activities have been very popular and gaining ground in recent years. Contrary to what some might think, they are neither a waste of time nor money. On the contrary, they help to strengthen cohesion between teams, benefit from a moment of relaxation and improve the corporate culture. Then find the team building activity that will best suit your company, your employees and your needs.
Why organize a team building?
Strengthen team spirit and sense of belonging
As its name suggests, team building is an ideal way to create or strengthen links between teams. These are often informal activities that are built around collaboration and teamwork. They allow employees to get to know each other better and to work together around a common activity, just like in a company!
Identify your employees' profiles
Through team building activities, everyone becomes aware of their strengths and weaknesses. Regardless of the nature of the team building (cultural, sporting, artistic, fun, culinary, etc.), teams have an easier time expressing themselves freely and reveal their personality in broad daylight. It's an opportunity to identify leaders and idea holders.
Develop new skills
The diversity of team building activities allows everyone to develop new skills that will be useful for the company: fostering a competitive spirit, stimulating creativity, taking initiatives, strengthening self-confidence, interactions, etc. To each objective its activity! The advantage of team building is that it offers your employees the opportunity to learn in a fun way. This type of learning is often much more effective than school methods.
Team building is an excellent way to reward employees in other ways than financially. By offering them fun and friendly activities outside of the professional context, they will feel valorisé.es and will want to contribute positively to the development and success of your company. Team building responds to the needs at the top of Maslow's pyramid: the need for self-esteem and personal fulfillment.
On top of that, it's the perfect opportunity to recharge everyone's batteries and get back to work relaxed. Close-knit and productive teams: the holy grail for any company!

There is nothing like beer and its friendly values to ensure a successful team building. In Brussels, it's impossible to escape this sweet beverage.

The world of chocolate
To get all gourmets on the same page, what could be better than a team building around chocolate? The animation offered by L'atelier chocolat is an excellent way to test the culinary skills of your teams while coming together around a common project. On the program: a class given by professional chefs on the art of cooking chocolate. Pralines, beggars, cupcakes, hot chocolate... It's time to elect the best pastry chef on your team!

It offers a moment of relaxation that is just as good for your body as it is for your mind. At Meet My Job, we personally tested yoga at Serendip Spa & Yoga.
