Easy Ways to Bond with Your Employees

23/01/2017 Image

If you are the manager of an office, or the owner of a local business, it’s always important for you to bond with your employees so you get to know the people working for you and make them feel like a bigger part of the team. Bonding with employees isn’t easy, though, and sometimes it can be costly depending on the activities you choose to do. However, it’s something that must be done to ensure employees are happy with their overall working environment. Bonding with employees has many benefits so it’s always worth spending the time and money on making sure it is a regular occurrence. If you are looking for ways in which you can bond with your employees, have a look at some of the activities you can take advantage of below.

Nights Out

There is nothing better than a good night out, encouraging all employees to let their hair down after a long hard week at work. Arranging a night out once in a while for the employees will go down a treat and it doesn’t have to be an expensive activity either. You could do a night out once every few months to let employees know they have worked hard through the quarter, and treating them to a meal and a few drinks is a good way to let them know you appreciate them.

Outdoor Activities

There are many outdoor activities that can be explored for a good team bonding session, but what you choose will determine the expense that comes with it. You could opt to go to the local playing field for a football tournament, which wouldn’t cost much at all, or you could even arrange for a day out paintballing if you don’t mind bearing the costs.

Indoor Activities

As well as outdoor activities, there are of course plenty of activities that can be done indoors. You could visit your local sports hall and have an afternoon playing tennis and badminton, or even visit the local snooker hall for a few games one evening. Add some food and drink into the equation and your team are sure to be willing to come along.

Office Games

If your budget is really tight or you can’t find the time to arrange a trip out somewhere nice, then there is nothing wrong spending an afternoon in the office playing a few games. There are a lot of games that can be played in the office, but a lot of companies choose to download bingo cards, invest in some dabbers, and have a fun afternoon playing Ladbroke’s Office Bingo. This can be a cheap and easy way to get employees involved whilst having a good time, and you can even include a few small cash prizes to winners that get lines or full houses.

The activities you can undertake with your employees are practically endless, and as long as you spend some time on the planning, there is no reason why you won’t, in time, have a business with many happy employees.
