Team building is vital in the workplace, as is having a group of employees that function as a singular unit, rather than a group of individuals. Organizations have tried endless amounts of team-building exercises over the years, with varying degrees of success. One way to incorporate team-building into the workplace is by arranging an employee scavenger hunt.

On-Site Scavenger Hunt

If taking a group of employees off-site for a scavenger hunt is simply not possible, whether because of time or travel restrictions, there are ways scavenger hunt planners can arrange a hunt at work. Since the workplace is familiar to the employees, devise a hunt in which clues are provided to the whereabouts of certain "at work" things. Use this as an opportunity to familiarise co-workers with one another as well. such as devising clues that glimpse into people's workplace habits and personalities.

For instance, have your employees locate a chocolate bar at the desk of that person in the office who seems to always have extra candy on hand. Or have them look for sports memorabilia if someone's cubicle is a shrine to a certain professional sports team. Incorporate these people-centric ideas into writing the clues.

Around Town Scavenger Hunt

The Around Town scavenger hunt is exactly at it sounds. Have the teams travel around the city collecting items and taking photographs from a prepared list. Set a time limit, in case no one is able to complete the list in its entirety. To add a degree of difficulty, have the teams rely solely on public transportation and walking.

Mall Hunt

Shopping malls feature a little bit of everything, which makes them ideal for a scavenger hunt. Have the teams complete a checklist of things to find in the mall (odd consumer goods, certain food court delicacies, etc.) and report back before the agreed upon time expires.
