6 Team Building Activities to Build Trust

Oct 8, 2021

‘There’s no team without trust’ as Paul Santanga of Google put it – building trust in your workplace will improve relationships, communication and productivity. Your employees will work more efficiently as a team and everyone will benefit from increased morale at work.

Our indoor, outdoor and virtual team building activities are a great way to build trust within your team. You’ll create fun memories, learn more about each other and leave with a greater trust and bond as a team. Give these a try:

1) Raid the Scrapheap in the Junkyard Challenge 

The Junkyard Challenge will test your team’s cooperation, creativity and initiative. You’ll race against time to engineer a machine from items you salvage from the scrapheap. Your team will develop better communication skills and learn to trust each other’s abilities and talents. The tasks will need to be shared out amongst team members or you won’t get everything done in time!

2. Work Together to Solve a Murder Mystery

Your participants will rely on each other to decipher clues and discover the perpetrator in our in-person Detective School team building event or virtual CSI Murder Mystery. Time limits will increase the pressure so team members will need to pull together, develop trust and effective communication to solve the mystery before time’s up!

3. Join Forces in the Building Bridges Activity

Your team will be assigned a challenging brief and will need to use each team member’s abilities to create a bridge that will stand up to the test. Will your team’s bridge hold or will it collapse? Find out more about Building Bridges team building.

4. Complete Taskmaster-Style Challenges

Our weird and wonderful tasks will really push your team to the limits! You’ll discover that you perform best when you all work together to meet our Taskmasters‘ demands. You might learn something new about your colleagues too.

5. Make Your Own Goodies in our Chocolatiers Challenge

Work as a team to create tasty chocolate delights in our Chocolatiers Challenge. You’ll need to decide on a brand name, flavour theme and packaging to save a failing cholcate factory! Can your creations stand up to the taste test?!

6. Collaborate on a Big Picture Masterpiece

Get your creative juices flowing in our Art Factory team building exercise. You’ll each work on individual pieces of art that will be assembled into one ‘Big Picture’ masterpiece at the end! Your artwork will be a great visual example of the combined strength of your team. You’ll learn to trust and respect each member’s talents and ideas – you’re stronger together than apart! Install the artwork in your office as a reminder of the amazing things your team can achieve.

So there you have it… some of our most popular team-building activities to build trust and cooperation within your team. You’ll all have fun and, more importantly, your team will develop greater trust-based relationships, making a solid basis for future projects and reducing the likelihood of disagreements and conflict in your office.
