10 Unique Corporate Team Building Activities in Singapore for 2018
Planning a corporate team building activity or outing can be stressful. You want your colleagues to have lots of fun and unwind amidst the usual hectic work schedule. There are also concerns about how to include people of different ages and interests in the activities you have planned.
Below are some carefully hand picked, unique, corporate team building activities and ideas for your team to have a fun-filled day!
1) Art Jamming on T-Shirts & Totes
Some love to customise a given product or artwork at a shop. However, most will be thrilled if they are involved in the creation and production of that item.
Workshop activities like Art Jams and Craft Lessons will allow your team to be in a cosy and nice ambience, and enjoy a therapeutic time together painting and letting their creative juices come alive. For people who are already tired from work and responsibilities, they will find this activity refreshing and appealing.
At The Noteway, Art Jamming sessions are conducted for corporate teams with a twist! Instead of Art Jamming on boring canvases, your team will get to Art Jam with silk screen paint on T-Shirts and Tote Bags, which they can take home as souvenirs from their Art Jamming Session.
Who doesn’t like memorable souvenirs to bring home after a fun filled day?

But what if you can get your team to print your company t-shirts all by themselves with some guidance from t-shirt printing experts?

3) Have an Escape Room Adventure
If your team likes tasks that are fun yet a little intellectually challenging, consider the choice of being trapped in a room together with your colleagues.
These escape rooms offer mysterious plots and puzzles for your colleagues to solve while getting to discover their behaviours and mannerisms that you may not have known initially, outside the context of the office.
Common Escape Rooms used for team building activities include:
