For many organisations, the initial shock of lockdown and the challenges of working from home, facilitating online meetings and keeping everyone connected will now seem a bit of a breeze. But even if things are running relatively smoothly, one thing that we all struggle with when working remotely is that sense of social connection and bonding that comes with being in the same physical location as other people.
If, like many of us, you’re feeling a little quizzed out, take a look at some of these suggestions for socially distanced team building workshops:
1. Get your team ‘buzzing’ with Bermondsey Street Bees.
From urban beekeeping and pollinator planting talks to tutored honey tastings, cocktail masterclasses, pop-up dining, honey-spinning displays, hive visits and more, all while being all suited and booted in a bee suit and appropriately socially distanced.
2. Take a calligraphy workshop with Ink and Flow.
Learn how to create beautiful letters and shapes with Ink and Flow, a service that teaches a combination of calligraphy and yoga. They offer 1-2-1 or group sessions for both yoga and calligraphy either online or in person keeping to social distance guidelines. They also run a popular Instagram live series if you wanted to try this out first.
3. Virtual group cookery experience with Jenuis Social.
With a little help from their chefs, your group will have a great time learning new cookery skills, showcasing their creativity and socialising over their edible masterpieces. You can choose from different cuisines and have a 3-course cook-along, including a cocktail masterclass too. They can take on up to 70 guests in one go, perfect for a larger team building activity or client entertainment.
4. Get creative with a Leafage online workshop.
Get ready to up your indoor plant game during lockdown and learn to build your own utopia at home. The workshops include a kit and plants that are sent to your home, leaving you with a botanical masterpiece that you can treasure forever.
5. Boost morale with a laughter workshop.
There’s no denying laughter is the best form of therapy. It releases endorphins from your brain, reduces the level of stress in your body and strengthens your immune system. Laughter for Teambuilding provide ‘laughter team building sessions’ so that you can loosen up with laughter and bond with your colleagues.
