Team Building

Play at Work

We all see corporate careers as serious, time consuming, stressful and even boring. Yes, it does give you a good pay check but what about life? Does it also give you joy along with all the stress? Of course, not!

But think again.. how about viewing it positively? What about rewards? Or is it just all about money?

Our workplace and our co-employees became our second family. Why not have fun while working? Working with your team is the best thing we all can have aside from getting our paycheck. We work with our group for at least 8 hours in a day. They became our confidants, our friends and we even fight with them at times.

Succeeding in the corporate world is something to take pride in but being in the corporate world is sometimes too stressful. So, how do we get rid of these daily stressors? We all need a break. Even top ranking officers need a break. Doing some team building exercises is a great way to unwind, release all the stressors at work and bond with your team. You will get to see the fun side of everyone. It doesn’t need much space. All you need is time and a cooperative spirit.

Take for example, a 15 minutes break. Typically some may take a coffee break or even take a cat nap. Why not do a short team building activity with your group?   Try to think of a variety of ways to become creative with your activity. You can give funny prizes to the winners and bragging rights acknowledgements.


Workplace should never be boring. It’s not just about documents, meetings, and presentations. It’s about growing with your team, helping out to provide a better output and at the same time bringing out the best in everyone.

  1. Team building breaks? I like that idea as long as it doesn’t get too carried away. I have seen some that just completely flopped, any tips to avoid those situations?

  2. Our company throws quarterly FUNctions that incorporate team building activities – last summer we had a Summer Olympics function that required us to gather in groups of four, four people we never met before and work as a team to complete the events. It was a lot of fun and we got to know each other! Made new friends and the objective is to facilitate future collaboration.
