What happens when you find yourself,
and your employees in a work rut?
Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here! When you don’t have anything new, inspiring, or challenging happening in the workplace, you may find you and your employees in a work rut. Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
1. Organize An “Unplugged” Activity
Leading technologies can sometimes hinder our ability to think outside the box with our own innovative ideas. Step away and unplug yourself from your phone and tech devices, and encourage that suppressed creativity in your team! Innovation directly impacts company growth and development. When there is nothing new in the works, things get stale. To prevent that, creating and keeping up with trends is a flash forward to success in today’s world. Start with a group activity such as a lunch, walk, or event to jump start new ideas. That project you have in the back of your mind? Do it. Anyone can be an innovator.
2. Increase Collaboration
Ask your team what their challenges are. How can you help? Inspiring collaboration will only lead to creative solutions. You have nothing to lose!
Not only will this boost your team’s productivity, but it will revitalize and strengthen your team.
3. A Fresh Look
Initiate change. Change is inevitable, but necessary for success!
• Discuss new, innovative ways to overcome challenges.
• Are there any areas that need improvement?
• What do you do to encourage your team to be successful?
• Can you liven up your work space?
Encourage change, and you are one step closer to motivating them out of that work rut!
4. Incentive for Improvement
Reward your employees by letting them know the positive impact or progress their idea has had. Recognition is a reward in itself.
Here at TeamBonding, we know how important these steps are to keep your team out of that work rut!
To encourage creativity and innovation, we introduced a new team building activity called The Global Innovation Game. Team members generate brilliant new ideas as a team in a creative environment, then they pitch and invest! This game has been developed out of a need to step away from every day tech devices, and gets everyone openly talking and developing new ideas. Not only is this activity fun, but it rewards those who are most innovative.
Check out a preview of the game below!

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.
