#2: The Crystal Challenge

As far as indoor team building activities go, this has to rank amongst the best that we currently offer.

#4: Escape Rooms

This activity always ranks highly in our top 10 indoor team building games, and it’s no surprise why!

Teams will be placed in a series of completely unique themed rooms to battle against the clock to escape.

It’s a fully-mobile activity where staff have to work together to crack codes, perform experiments, and complete a wide range of challenging and fun tasks whilst the adrenalin pumps.

#5: Crime Scene Experience (CSI)

Fancy yourself as a crime scene investigator?

Teams of employees are split up into CSI teams and made to investigate motives behind the crime, find out who was murdered, and then put the evidence together to catch the culprit.

With this indoor team building idea, all team members are kitted out with a full CSI kit including white body suits, masks, and gloves.

#6: Bakeathon

This is another of our TV show themed ideas and pits your employees against each other in your very own bake off.

It’s one of the best indoor team building activities we currently offer and can be hosted at a top hotel in various venues across the country.

#7: The Apprentices

Based on the popular TV show, this idea can actually work indoors too.

It’s a superb way to test team work in a fun and unique environment.

#8: Let’s Get Ready to Jungle

Do your employees have what it takes to escape our jungle camp?

Set indoors, this activity involves your staff working together to solve mental, physical, and even some eating challenges if they are brave enough! 

#9: Den of Dragons

No list of best indoor team building ideas would be complete without a Dragon’s Den inspired activity.

Each team has to come up with their own idea to pitch to a panel of Dragons in order to see who will win the much-needed investment.

It’s a fantastic indoor team building game that will test brains and creativity, with staff needing to work on planning, research, budgeting, and marketing techniques. 

#10: Masterpiece Challenge

An idea that works very well with smaller groups is our Masterpiece Challenge.

Your team will have to create their own giant version of a famous painting whilst completing mini challenges along the way.

Why Team Building is Important

If you are working traditional 9 to 5 hours, then chances are that you actually spend more time with your co-workers than you do with your family and friends. And just like family, you can’t choose your co-workers!

That’s why it’s so important that you are able to work well together and get on at the very least so that you can focus on your job and the company objectives.

There are countless studies out there which talk about the ways in which effective team building can help with productivity, but there are also more obvious benefits too.

Here’s just a small selection of benefits you can achieve through effective team building that we think are important.

  • Improves employee collaboration
  • Brings staff members together
  • Helps with problem solving and decision making
  • Develops better communication skills
  • Improves creative thinking
  • Refreshes and re-charges office relationships
  • Boosts staff morale
