“Today is our retreat, we really had fun this afternoon and we really enjoyed in the 3 activities – the chapteh, Indian spices and Chinese paper cutting. The time was just right, and I’m glad that we got to know each other better so it’s great, and overall it was a fun experience.” – Betty, Ministry Of Health (9th Jan 2017)

Case Study 1: How the President’s staff bond – Our exclusive Singapore team building activity

Don’t be shy, say hello!

Regardless of the size of the company or organisation, it is common to find that all of you may be working in the same building, yet not know each other (personally), or worse, did not even know the existence of each other. To make the working environment a more friendly one, we hope that through this event, participants were grouped randomly across departments, to promote bonding across departments. This proved to be an excellent opportunity for employees to know people from other departments and widen their social circle, to prevent them from only keeping to their own department. Now, they will have more opportunities to wave a “hello” or a simple “good morning” when they meet at corridors or queuing for the same stall for lunch in the future, and of course, no more awkward silence when taking the same lift!

Share your aspirations!

After participants warmed up with one another, they are given time to think of their individual aspirations they have in the new year, and share them, hopefully to foster a deeper understanding when participants learn about the aspirations each other have.

With such knowledge, employees could possibly identify with those who have  the same goal and work towards their goal together, or help each other achieve their goal.

Subsequently, participants came together and after some discussion, agreed on a common aspiration for the entire team. This promotes communication, where the team will have an aligned goal which everyone will work towards together in the year.

Let the show begin!

The long-awaited Drama Mama begins! As usual, participants will work together and brainstorm, to think of a creative drama plot about Singapore back in the olden days. However, this time round, it is more challenging as participants are required to include some specific items/themes in their skits. Such challenges include:

– skit should involve historical characters such as Sang Nila Utama, Sir Stamford Raffles etc.

– aspirations mentioned earlier have to be incorporated in their story plot as the key message

– include activities like Chinese paper cutting, Indian spices and Chapteh anywhere in the story

– think on the spot and improvise when given a surprise situation (it’s a surprise after all right?) not told to them beforehand!

Despite the challenges, participants had fun discussing and coming up with the most innovative story line nobody can think of. Think along the lines of: Sir Stamford Raffles came to Singapore and saw a Chinese wedding. This was where Chinese paper cutting came in.

If you think that that’s all, you are wrong. Creativity of the participants certainly does not end there. The story also included Indian guests who were invited to the wedding, and they brought along curry which they cooked themselves and yes, you guessed it right, this was the part where Indian spices came in.

And of course, there were more interesting and funny situations which you really have to experience it for yourself! Participants really had a lot of fun, laughing at each other’s hilarious plot, and nobody was left out. Even those who slightly introverted did not have any trouble opening up, and in fact, they were the MVPs who acted really well!

Wrapping up

The event ended off with some reflection time, where participants get some time to reflect on what they did, their aspirations, their colleagues aspirations, bonds forged with each other and more, basically whatever that happened throughout the event.

Also, to wrap up this fun team building in Singapore, there was a concluding speech made by the boss, to have a perfect end to the awesome team bonding.

Everyone had a great time and one thing for sure, they left the event with even more friends, and with even closer bonds forged.

Case Study 2: BP’s Team-building Story – 100% Team Building Fun at a Fraction of the Cost

Team Building Activities Singapore Culture

BP is one of the world’s leading integrated oil and gas companies, with operations all over the world. BP has successfully operated in Singapore for over 50 years. With a global financial downturn, even established multinational corporations (MNCs) like BP become more prudent and cost-conscious.

The good news is, you don’t have to break the bank to organise a great team building activity in Singapore. And here’s where Village Singapura comes in! We call ourselves “angels” – not only can we help to get funding for up to 80% of the team building activity costs , we can also get you bigger bang for your buck.

 

Why You Shouldn’t Scrimp on Team Building

In the current gloomy economic situation, team building activities may seem like a luxury best left to better financial times. But the truth is, team building is an important investment, and even more so in tough times. You need team building more than ever to build morale and increase rapport between employees so they can work together to weather whatever storms come your way.

Unfortunately, not all team building activities are equal, in the sense that some are more effective than others. In light of budget cuts, it may be tempting to settle for simple activities like a meal or a round of drinks – but at the end of the day, without targeted and structured activity designed to boost cohesion and build rapport within the team, you may find yourself back at square one. The Human Resource team, or any committee within the company, may not have the spare time on top of their normal duties to come up with affordable team building ideas. (They might end up having to use precious personal time or family time to come up with something – not the best way to boost morale.)

100% Customised Plans

For BP (Singapore), as an MNC, they also wanted a way to boost familiarity with Singapore culture, beliefs and values. Based on their needs, Village Singapura came up with a detailed proposal and ran all the paperwork needed for getting funding from the Singapore National Employers Federation – a completely hassle-free experience for BP.

The result? The BP team had a great time at Village Drama-Mama  and the kompang challenge, drumming up a united beat on traditional Malay drums.

Case Study 3: The “Cupid” of Team Building Activities

We’d like to think of ourselves as “angels” and “match-makers”. No, we’re not offering team building activities in conjunction with Singapore’s Social Development Network. But we are partners with some of Singapore’s leading team building event companies, which means we can offer a wide range of activities for your team building event, tailor-made for your needs and budget. (Doesn’t matter if your budget is $10 per person or $300 per person, and we have something for groups both big and small!)

The best part is, it’s easy and fuss-free! Let’s run through the process with you with a hypothetical company – let’s call it Company X.

Company X is a MNC that believes in investing in its staff. The HR team organises a fun bonding activity every quarter, but because they don’t want to repeat the same activities, they quickly run out of ideas. A quick Google search leads them to Village Singapura (that’s us!), where they spot a few things they’d like to try.

All Company X has to do is fill up the simple enquiry form [http://villagesingapura.com/enquiry/] indicating what they want to do, the preferred date of their team building event, and the number of participants. And that’s it! A proposal is sent out by the same day or next day with activities recommended based on their needs and they’re set to go. It’s like ordering dim sum – a trolley comes by, and you pick what you want without even leaving your seat.

If you’ve ever had to organise an event, you’ll know the frustration and hard work involved – researching activities, calling multiple vendors only to find that it doesn’t work out because of cost, availability of dates, etc. Sometimes, vendors may also be slow to reply, or have complicated enquiry forms that are a hassle to fill.

Get in touch with us today!

At Village Singapura, we make things painless for you. We’ll do the legwork, and present you with a concise and clear proposal to share with your boss or your team.

Company X votes on an activity, they go out and have great fun, with payment made directly to the vendor. The next time Company X is planning their quarterly team building activity, they won’t have to worry about running out of ideas again, thanks to Village Singapura.

Company X is smart.
Be like Company X.
