How well do you know your co-workers, company and company culture?
You’ll have a great time ﬁnding out with Survey Says – inspired by the ever so popular game show: Family Feud.
Since its premiere in 1976, Family Feud has aired during 31 non-consecutive seasons. Created during the increasing popularity of the Goodson-Todman game show, Match Game, by Richard Dawson.
Dawson was one of Match Game’s most popular panelists, and the immediate next choice as host of the spin-off, which combined the team format and form of questioning from the original 1960s Match Game with the survey polling used for the 1970s version’s “Audience Match”. We bet you didn’t know all of that!
A Game Show Team Building Program
Family Feud has been renewed through the 2016-17 season, when the show will turn 40 years old. That’s quite a run! It’s also quite an inspiration. Survey Says works well between courses of your company dinner, or as a stand-alone company event.
Much like Family Feud, your team is organized into groups (families) of ﬁve to 10 contestants. You can divide groups by departments, interests, regions, or any way that you’d like. The more diverse your teams, the more entertaining the guesses – and the greater the beneﬁt in terms of bonding.
To keep the event lively and relevant, questions can be unique to your organization or general-knowledge categories. All game show questions are displayed on a projection screen for everyone to see, which creates an experience that is just as educational as it is fun.

Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
