What does organising a company team building consist of?

Corporate team building is a set of stimulating techniques designed to develop and maintain the motivation of a company's entire workforce in a playful setting. In a business environment where thinking is more focused on meticulous organization, team building brings a quirky, original aspect to the various activities. Organizing a team building event also enhances individual creativity, and enables company staff to get to know each other better, so they can work better together as a team.

Team building idea for companies: where to organise your team building?

Looking for an idea for a corporate team building activity? It's easy to find a team-building activity in France, with its many Unesco World Heritage sites. Internationally, the sea, the ocean and the mountains offer a palette of landscapes and activities as diverse as they are varied. You could go hiking or horse-riding in Aquitaine, rafting in the Pyrenees, mountain biking, 4×4 or quad biking in Spain or Dubai, followed by a hot-air balloon ride... On the snow side..,

We can also manage transportation to the destination, transfers if necessary, accommodation, catering, workroom hire and of course unique team building activities.

The different types of corporate team building and corporate incentives:

There are many different types of team building activities, depending on what you're looking for and what you want to achieve. Here are a few team building ideas.

  • Creative team building:
    Creative team building is ideal for team building, from 7 to 77 years old (wood games, frescoes, painting, oenology, perfume creation...). The aim is to build an artistic object as a team and develop the creative aspect.
  • Cultural team building:
    Cultural team building combines relaxation and discovery: a visit to a picturesque village, a gabarre ride on a river, the discovery of a protected site... Each activity is a way to challenge your teams and help them discover the treasures of our country.
  • Industrial / commercial team building:
    Industrial team building is quite simply the discovery of a site such as Airbus with the A380 assembly line, a visit to the Cité de l'espace in Toulouse, or a tour of various start-ups in New York related to your field...
  • Team building rally:
    Whether in a 2CV, mountain bike, segway or on foot, this team building is a mix of discovery and orientation. A highly effective tool for improving team cohesion and strengthening bonds.
  • Team building sports:
    This type of activity is ideal for letting off steam while learning a sport or sporting activity: introduction to golf or rugby, organization of a mini-Olympiad, boot camp in the forest...
  • Team building adventure:
    This team building activity is ideal for those who like to share thrills as a team: accrobranche, canyoning, rafting, 4×4, quad, etc. Adrenalin flows freely, and the group must be united to face difficult situations.

- Fun activities:
Fun activities are workshops with a recreational value, such as organizing a wine casino, creating a perfume, shooting a video clip or building wooden games.

- Visual and artistic animations:
These animations are made to complete an event or evening with various artists present to entertain your guests. From a close-up magician to dancers, a gipsy or 80s music group, a culinary workshop, a blind tasting, a caricaturist, an animator, comedians or musicians..., SOP Events offers you the best cast of artists in all entertainment disciplines.

These events are designed to enhance your company's image in the eyes of your customers or colleagues, to develop exchanges and group spirit, and to strengthen team cohesion through artistic activities or fun, entertaining games.

  • Group games are often synonymous with motivation and integration, facilitating the commitment of each employee towards a common goal: making the team win together!
  • Fun activities involve participants in a specific task in the form of a game, which reinforces the sense of belonging to the company and boosts team performance.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What is the ideal duration for a team-building event?

The ideal duration depends on your objectives and your employees' availability. In general, a one-day event is sufficient to achieve most team building objectives, but shorter or longer sessions can also be effective.

How much does it cost to organize a team building activity?

The cost can vary depending on the type of activity, the location and the number of participants. At SOP Events, we offer tailor-made solutions to suit your budget and your team.

What are the advantages of using an event agency to organize a team building event?

Using an agency gives you the expertise, experience and resources you need to organize a successful event. An agency can also customize the event to meet your specific needs.

Combining seminars and team building: is it a good idea?

Yes, combining seminars and team building is an excellent idea. This combination maximizes the benefits for your company. A seminar provides an ideal setting for training, strategy and the exchange of ideas, while team building strengthens cohesion, communication and employee motivation. By integrating team building activities into your seminar, you create an environment conducive to collaboration and commitment, which can significantly improve your team dynamics.

Is it better to do the team-building activity before or after the seminar?

When deciding whether a team-building activity should take place before or after a seminar, it's essential to consider the objectives of the activity and the desired dynamics of the event. A team building activity organized before the seminar can serve as an ice-breaker, allowing participants to get to know each other and feel more at ease, which can facilitate exchanges and active participation during the seminar. On the other hand, post-seminar team building can be an effective closing event, reinforcing the lessons learned during the seminar and consolidating the bonds created. The choice will therefore depend on the main objective of the team building activity and how you wish to structure your seminar to maximize the commitment and cohesion of the participants.

What type of event is the most popular for team building?

The most popular animation for team building is undoubtedly that which combines innovation and dynamic interaction. Successful animation captures participants' attention and actively engages them, which is essential for effective team building. Among the various forms of animation, escape games stand out for their ability to stimulate team cooperation and problem-solving. Another popular activity is role-playing, where employees can simulate professional situations to improve communication and cohesion. Outdoor activities, such as orienteering races or sports challenges, also offer an excellent opportunity to strengthen team spirit while enjoying a natural environment. 

How do you measure the success of a team-building activity?

Success can be measured by various indicators, such as improved communication, strengthened team relations, and increased employee motivation. Satisfaction surveys and feedback from participants are also useful in assessing the event's impact.
