What is more important than efficient work? A quality rest! It helps you to relax, overcome burnout and improve work. Team building is a great idea in such situation.
Sometimes it seems that setting up the team building is minor thing, but after you start organizational routine, this opinion absolutely changes. We want to share some ideas about planning and organizing of the team building activities with ActivityTimeline.
As we cannot plan such event in Jira (ok, undoubtedly we can, but it would be kind of strange and uncomfortable) so we have good news – there’s no need to set reminders in external calendars or to write reminders on sticks, as for now all in one place – ActivityTimeline dashboard.
Since ActivityTimeline provides Custom events, we can offer such an opportunity. Moreover, it has a Milestone panel and you can pin an upcoming event in order not to forget about it and to show everyone.
And the next way is just to set up your own custom event – Team Building and book people for future activities. We have also a feature which allows to assign the same event to the whole team, so it will completely free you from routine scheduling.
Plan ahead – this point we’ve already touched a little bit. Planning is a key for every undertaking. Custom events are not enough, as, first of all, you need to pick up a person responsible for this task, not to forget to choose a date and time and plan the very activities.
Other reasons why you need ActivityTimeline:
Set goals and plan a program – you will definitely need to create a topic, choose whether it will be games, educational or sport activities, out/in doors etc.
By the way, if you need some help with team games, we prepared a small list in the end of the article and want to share it with you!
Gather feedback – in order to plan new great events it’s necessary to consider the previous experience.
Start planning the next team building – we’re working better when we have a motivation and wait for desirable upcoming events, and what can be better than a great time spent with teammates and exciting activity?
As we promised – a list of games for team building :
New reality requires fresh ideas. During quarantine the importance of connection has increasingly grown as humans are social beings and need a feel that they are not completely isolated from each other.
It is becoming popular to organize 5 minute team building games and tasks every day or once in a week. Others gather for an hour or even more, choose some topic and just chat. ActivityTimeline is quite facilitative here too, as you can reflect these team buildings on timeline and everyone will be aware of that. You may choose any option and remember that staying far from each other doesn’t mean that you cannot support your teams and work effectively.
With ActivityTimeline you can not only work but also have fun and rest, just play around and discover its configurable features.
Build your team spirit and support, it’s very important.
