Holiday parties don’t have to be about getting together for overpriced drinks and hors d’oeuvres. They can be so much more!
Team building activities are focused on promoting motivation and cooperation among team members, and corporate holiday team building adds to that a special meaning – if done right. Around the holiday season, everyone feels filled with the giving spirit, an opportunity that should not be missed by team leaders and managers.
Here are some ideas on how to boost employees’ morale and motivation during the holiday season with the help of corporate holiday team building.
Put someone in charge
This does not mean that a single employee should handle everything; it is even better to name a committee to be in charge of planning this year’s meeting to stimulate team members to work together right from the get-go. It also helps bring in fresh ideas! Use the “none of us are as smart as all of us” theory, as others might have heard about a great team building idea from a spouse or friend.
As long as action items are clearly delegated, the event will be well planned and employees will benefit from and enjoy your corporate holiday team building.
Tradition meets diversity
There can be many ideas roaming around the office about what would be best for team building at the end of the year. The leader’s role will be to act as a moderator between those who want to stick with tradition and those who would like a bit of diversity.
Keep in mind that the last thing you want is for your corporate holiday team building event to be boring. Gathering proposals from various team building vendors can bring ideas to the table that you never knew existed!
Holiday activities can build beautiful memories
Holiday parties at the office are seen by quite a large percentage of employees as being more of an obligation than a benefit. If you want the atmosphere in your office to be different at the end of this year, try a new approach: charity events.
The holidays are known as the time of the year when everyone feels the need to share some of their good fortune and happiness. Charity team building events will mean much more for your employees than a holiday party where everyone simply shows up and fulfills their obligation so they can go home.

Whether they are building toys or bikes for kids or gathering items for a food bank, allow your employees to have a glimpse of the impact their common action is going to have. Corporate holiday team building can – and should – be about giving, a positive sentiment that will boost your employees’ morale and motivation.
