Employees want to work for organizations that give back to the community. In fact, 61% of workers say that a company’s commitment to the community would likely be a factor when choosing between two potential jobs with the same location, responsibilities, pay, and benefits. In addition to improving morale and ethical behaviors in the workplace, corporate giving also boosts employee engagement, productivity, trust, and collaboration. Studies show that companies with highly engaged employees are 21% more profitable.
Giving back to your community
It’s easy to incorporate social responsibility into your team’s culture. Charitable team building activities offer participants exciting ways to come together for friendly competition and fun activities while making a difference. There’s something for everyone from building wheelchairs to teddy bears. TeamBonding offers activities for groups of all shapes and sizes, whether your team is interested in benefiting animals, veterans, children or the community or something else.
Below are some popular activities from TeamBonding’s extensive roster.
Toys for Tykes
The excitement begins with an icebreaker and progresses onto other activities, including Toy Trivia, a Blindfolded Puzzle Challenge, and a fun, fast-paced, secret ﬁnal challenge. In Toys for Tykes, teams earn the points needed to earn the materials that ﬁll their girl-themed and boy-themed wagon of treasures.
As groups work together, they are also given a songbook that contains the lyrics to common knowledge tunes. They are tasked with picking one of the songs and rewriting the lyrics to ﬁt their company or your meeting theme.
Participants wrap the gift-ﬁlled wagons in cellophane and bows. They make note cards for each present, providing a personal message from the teams. Then, each team will perform their choreographed musical masterpiece to a wildly cheering audience.
Paws For A Cause
If you’re looking to mix in some fun while giving back to your local animal shelter, Paws For A Cause is the team building event for your team. As groups work together to help local rescue animals by making dogs beds, toys, and cat-scratch pads, trivia and word challenges will be put in the mix. Combine team building, and com-PET-ition to make a difference in an animal’s life.
In this virtual activity, teams will break up into groups and compete against each other through puzzles, trivia, and other fun challenges to climb the leaderboard. Impact Online promotes teamwork and trust as teams work to take action toward a sustainable future. Through each challenge, teams will learn what they can do to support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Expect goosebumps… at the end, team points are converted into donations to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Make a meaningful impact and strive toward a sustainable future.
