1. Charity Bike Build
Charity Bike Build reels in at our #1 most popular event… again! This wonderful team building event really takes Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to the next level. Working together in small teams, your group assembles quality bicycles, to be given to children who otherwise would never experience the joy and confidence that comes with riding a bike. TeamBonding handles all the logistics, providing all the bikes and tools you need while coordinating with a local organization like Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc. Along with a shiny new bike, each child will also receive a helmet and bike lock.
This CSR program is an extraordinary way to give your team a sense of connection beyond day-to-day work challenges. We’ve donated over 18,000 bikes to date!
CSR programs can help build bonds, strengthen communication skills and boost morale while making a positive difference in the lives of people who need it most.

2. Beat The Box
Beat The Box is a mobile, fully scalable escape room-inspired team building activity. Truly an international phenomenon, over 50,000 people have enjoyed this competitive event in locations around the world. Here’s how it works: after a short into video, each of your teams works to open a box, only to discover four smaller cases inside. Every case contains escape challenges that must be solved in order to unlock the next case. Ultimately, one team will be first to discover the mystery password that stops the clock. This event offers plenty of fast-paced excitement. It encourages creativity, collaboration, and quick thinking every step of the way. This is by far the most successful, international team building event.

3. Team Cuisine
Team Cuisine™ gives your group the experience of preparing, enjoying and celebrating a serious gourmet meal. It’s a deliciously fresh way to bring your team together outside the context of their day-to-day workplace relationships. We offer lots of menu options and can accommodate groups of all shapes and sizes. No wonder this is consistently one of our most popular events worldwide, year after year. Highly recommended as a way to kick off or wrap up a conference or meeting, or to celebrate a company milestone.
Let’s get cooking!
4. The Infinite Loop
The Infinite Loop is the world’s first team building event using VR (virtual reality) technology. This simulating, role-playing, virtual reality video game is the future of team building! The scenario: Your team must rescue a young man who’s been locked in a virtual prison. Each team is supplied with a VR headset, and one team member at a time is able to explore the virtual world. Virtual travelers must describe their surroundings accurately as fellow team members race to solve real-world puzzles, unlock multiple doors, and release the trapped player from his virtual prison. A versatile, powerful event that provides players with continuous feedback, helping them to communicate more effectively and solve problems more efficiently.
This one of kind experience collides the real world with the virtual world.
5. Ice Sculpting
Ice Sculpting is one of the least expected and most successful events we’ve ever created. When we dreamed up an ice sculpting team building event, a few of our staff wondered if we’d finally lost it. But the first group who booked it absolutely loved everything about their event. Seriously, client feedback is off the charts, time after time. No chainsaws – just gloves, chisels and plenty of cooperation and laughter. Often, the results are actually pretty impressive. Some ambitious teams even do company logos and other key branding elements.
A great choice, no matter what the season.
6. Do Good Bus
Do Good Bus is a half-day social impact activity that allows your team to work together on a worthy cause while learning more about their community. We can draw from a wide network of volunteer opportunities and work together with you to pick a cause that best suits your organization. So give back, and hop on the Do Good Bus! If you’d like to tell your team the event specifics, great… but many of our clients actually prefer to add the surprise factor – keeping it a secret from your team about where you are headed, and what you will be doing. Getting on the Do Good Bus is a great way for your team to work together, do good together, and learn about their community.
Hop on the Bus, we’ll do the rest!
7. Survey Says
Survey Says is a wildly entertaining game show, keeping the participants and the audience on the edge of their seats. This high-energy game show is equipped with your own TV Host and can be conducted a stand-alone event or during a meal. Think of this as the corporate team building version of Family Feud. Gather your co-workers, create your teams, and try to guess the top six to ten answers displayed on the board. Naturally, we customize the questions to highlight your group’s company culture, branding, event theme, etc. Multiple rounds ensure that the maximum number of people get a chance to play.
What team will win the final championship round?
8. Mr. Roboto
Mr. Roboto is a fun and engaging team building event, packed with technology! The main goal of this event is for teams to build a fully functioning, high-tech robot, controllable via an iphone app! Winning teams must rely on communication, collaboration, and leadership to outperform the competition. This is a great way to keep up with the latest technology. It’s also a fresh, hands-on way to improve skills, have fun together, and give back to the community. That’s right, Mr. Roboto also features a charitable component. Which is perfect, as Robotics happens to be the #1 most-requested STEM subject, yet also the most underfunded. We make building robots accessible and fun!
Oh, and did we mention the awesome robot obstacle course?
9. In It to Win It
In It to Win It easily qualifies as one of our most popular events, year after year. After some energetic icebreakers, teams are taught the In It To Win It challenges, such as Full of Hot Air, Cone Head, and Bucket of Fun. Participants then have practice time to not only try the challenges, but brainstorm ways to be more successful when they compete. With 60 seconds on the clock, the pressure builds, and team pride is on the line! Our helpful and engaging facilitator will commentate on all the challenges along the way, building the excitement through humor and music. We take fun, friendly competition to a whole new level!
Are you the next In It To Win It Champion?
10. Clue Live the Scavenger Hunt
Clue Live the Scavenger Hunt is a fun, interactive scavenger hunt based on Clue, the Musical, which is licensed exclusively to TeamBonding. The timeless mystery board game takes on a whole new dimension in this hilarious team building hunt! Working as detectives, your teams meet and question our cast of six live suspects. Along the way, they’re also guaranteed to encounter mystery, treasure hunting and the real need for strong teamwork. Finally, they all take a stab at guessing the culprit, murder weapon and crime location. This lively production works well in a conference center or resort, or let us bring it directly to your own workplace. Clue Live is also available as a murder mystery dinner game, Clue Live Mansion Mystery held in a local mansion, library, or unique venue of your choosing.

Rather than expecting office life to “go back to normal” after coronavirus, business and team leaders should be planning for what many are calling the “new normal.” So what does team-building after COVID-19 look like? For starters, it includes safe and sanitary workspaces for employees, potentially more remote hires, and flexible work-from-home policies.
As a food writer for Zagat, I used to scribble stories about all sorts of people: chefs, butcher, bakers. About seven years ago, I had an interesting interview with a bean-to-bar chocolate maker. I learned all about how she created her chocolate from scratch. Instead of telling me about commonplace machines like grinders and enrobers, she started talking about using rotisserie chicken roasters, juicers, and hair dryers!
First off, what is a digital workspace? A digital workspace is a technological framework that centralizes an organization’s applications, data, and desktop delivery. It allows employees to access their apps and data on any device and from any location.
Given the state of the current environment, businesses everywhere are adjusting to remote work. Whether your organization is a veteran to remote work policies, or entirely new to the concept, successfully maintaining a remote team requires the same general best practices as a traditional one would. Fortunately, this growing trend offers a plethora of benefits for both employees and businesses overall. From greater flexibility to improved productivity, the switch to remote work can be a liberating thing when properly managed. That said, proper management begins with ensuring your remote employees are equipped with all necessary tools to perform their jobs both efficiently and securely. Now more than ever, cybercriminals are targeting remote workers, and in these fast-paced times, it’s important you feel confident in the security of your business and the data behind it. To help make certain of that, we’re sharing a few cybersecurity best practices to reduce the risk of your remote employees falling victim to an attack.
During this unique time, we are all experiencing feelings of fearful anticipation. News changes from hour to hour, and we are needing to be more flexible than ever. With many being requested to work remotely, our trust issues will be triggered. Becoming aware of this will assist you in adapting to this situation.
Remote workers need to feel connected to one another as much as an “IRL” team in an office environment. The trick is figuring out team huddle ideas that bridge physical gaps. Whether your team went remote recently due to COVID-19 restrictions or are permanently remote, a sense of bonding and community is essential to productivity. It also builds friendships, and many remote team members look forward to team huddles as a time to check-in and connect.
Employee productivity is essential to building and maintaining a successful company. It may be hard to believe, but the average worker is said to only be productive 2 hours and 23 minutes out of an 8-hour workday. Employees are often distracted by unwork related items such as social media, news websites, chatting with colleagues, snacking, and even job searching.
So, you suddenly found yourself managing a remote team? Here you will understand the benefits of virtual team building as we share activity ideas you can implement. Remote work has been on the rise for years, and as COVID-19 is moving more teams online, remote team building is becoming a necessary step for business operations and human resources. It’s also an opportunity to get creative about how your team bonds and has fun in this new space, especially during stressful times.
