Use Prize Wheels For Team Building Events
Team building activities have been known to increase productivity, improve morale, and foster healthy relationships among coworkers that can improve the overall health of the company. The task of finding the perfect team building program, then, should be a top priority for any successful business. There are plenty of third-party companies that will put your employees through a series of exercises designed specifically to establish relationships between coworkers. The problem is that these retreats often charge a hefty fee for their services. Team building exercises do not only help coworkers learn more about each other. It also helps establish mutual respect and improves communication. This leads to increased overall productivity.

Instead of investing thousands of dollars on a retreat, you might want to consider getting a prize wheel. Prize wheels are well-known for their ability to generate an atmosphere of fun and excitement. They have been successfully used at company meetings and trade show events to generate interest and create buzz. What many do not realize, though, is that these carnival games are the perfect choice for team building exercises, too. All you have to do is select a few great activities, print custom activity cards on your home printer, and insert them into the prize wheel. Once that is accomplished, you can hold an all-day event.

Example of Outdoor Team Building Activity

If your company has a large parking lot, simply buy a prize wheel, customize the prize slots, and bring all the employees outside. Organize your employees into several teams and challenge them with activities that require them to fully cooperate. A scavenger hunt is a great way to get employees to communicate and build closer relationships with one another. The team to find everything on the list first gets to spin the wheel. To make things interesting, you can offer highly desirable prizes such as a cash bonus for everyone on the team or a big ticket item like a television set or a computer. With a free, downloadable template, it should be simply to customize your prize wheel. Create prize cards for team activities and have the employees spin to select an activity. Then simply replace the activity cards with prize cards. The first team to accomplish its goal can then spin the wheel to win a prize.

Example of Team Building Exercise - Indoor


To teach employees the importance of clear communication, try a team building activity called "back to back drawing." In this activity, employees are divided into pairs and will sit with their backs facing each other. One partner should be given a picture with outlines and geometric shapes. The other should be handed a pencil and some paper. Then, the one with the picture will give their partner step-by-step instructions to draw the picture. The picture must only be drawn based on the instruction of their partner. Whoever gets the best results can be rewarded by giving them a chance to spin the wheel for a prize. You can even use your prize wheel to start a group discussion. It is a great tool to use to improve communication at the workplace. Below are a few discussion ideas you can use with your prize wheel:
  • What made it difficult to complete this activity?
  • What did you feel when you were the one describing the picture? What caused you to feel this way?
  • Was it frustrating to draw a picture based solely on your partner's description? Why did you feel this way?
  • How does this activity apply to communicating with others?
  • What can you do to make sure that you are communicating effectively with others?
