Are you crawling through Google, Bing or Yahoo to search for SG team building ideas?
Won’t you save time if someone did all the search for you instead?
Isn’t it even better if someone prepares an executive summary of the top SG bonding activities? Then, let the summary tell you which activity is best for which situation. All you need to do is to choose the type that best suits you, search for that type of activity and send a standard request for proposal for the top 10 results. Voila!
Wait a minute. Before we jump in, let us be clear on what you need so that we can help you get your job done.
Why you are doing this: Team building programmes provide excellent opportunities for employees to network, cultivate a sense of belonging to the organization, foster team spirit, learn how to communicate more effectively, increase work productivity and the list goes on! Given the numerous benefits behind team building activities, it is no wonder the management encourages running them, and you, my reader friend, might have been allocated the task to brainstorm for team bonding activities and engage a suitable team building company!
Since there are so many benefits, before you can choose the right activity, you need to be clear on what is your most important objective or benefit that you seek. Also, be clear on the type of participants that will be attending the activity.
How we can help you: It is hard work, yes, to sieve through numerous pages of online search results to find something that fits you. Therefore, our team at Village Singapura has taken the initiative to compile a pretty long list of team building activities in Singapore as your one-stop executive summary to make your life easier!
Disclaimer: Here’s a bit about us at Village Singapura. We are an awesome team building company in Singapore made up of a group of great and fun-loving people, who are passionate about making your corporate team building session enriching, meaningful, effective and fun! How do we achieve this?
Firstly, we designed a programme that most, if not all, employees can participate in, by making it friendly to pregnant ladies, handicapped, and senior members in air-conditioned venues, so that no one gets left behind, choked by the haze or showered by unreciprocated love i.e. the rain drops! Secondly, we cater to your organization’s preferences be it in terms of dietary requirements (halal/vegetarian/alcohol-friendly), budget, or overseas retreat! Thirdly, we incorporate team building principles into them! There were some deep thought processes that went into planning the games to make them worth your precious time! You can see our ~1min video trailers of drama-mama or LIVE action role-playing-games to see if it will work for you.
Methodology: We have searched for “team bonding activities in Singapore” and gathered the results from the top 10 pages from Google, Bing and Yahoo (alright, there were only 9 pages of results on Yahoo), filtered off the duplicates, ranked the top 80 activities, sorted the list in alphabetical order, and here you go with the first 20 of the top 80!
