3 Unique Team Building Activities in New York

The holidays are upon us and for most, it’s a hectic time of year as we rush to tie up loose ends before looking to a fresh start in 2016. One way to ensure your company has its best year yet is to renew your commitment to focusing on those who make up the backbone of the company – your employees.

Team building is a surefire way to keep your employees refreshed and engaged. We’re not talking about tying shoes together into a giant knot, answering icebreakers, or practicing trust falls.

Team building in New York goes well beyond that! These three companies all offer fun, completely unique, and adventurous ways to refresh your team so they’re ready to rock in 2016.

1) Lock yourselves in a room and throw away the key. Escape the Room NYC will lock up to ten people in a room with just a handful of clues showing how to get out. It’s up to your team to work together, find the clues, put all the puzzle pieces together and free themselves before the hour-long timer runs out. Putting your team in an intense setting like this encourages camaraderie and there’s no doubt your team will escape the room with a stronger bond than before.

2) Race through the American Museum of Natural History or the Metropolitan Museum of Art and explore rarely-seen treasures. Unlock the secrets of some of New York’s best museums with Museum Hack’s scavenger hunts!
Your team will be treated to a completely customized museum hunt designed to focus on connecting your employees and promoting your company’s values. Re-enact famous scenes or mimic portraits with fantastic photo challenges.

3) Battle a herd of zombies. Humans vs. Zombies bring The Walking Dead to life in this adult game of tag. Each fight is customized for your group based on your team-building objectives. Teams will battle against one another in a fast-paced, exhilarating game as they complete missions and launch foam-blasting darts at each other.
