Now that the long, hazy days of summer have been and gone for another year, autumn is well underway and it won’t be long before winter is in full swing. With minds still busy reminiscing over glorious weather and summer holidays, without yet looking ahead to the excitement of the festive season, it’s no surprise that the sudden appearance of dull, dreary days can cause a real dip in your team’s levels of motivation and productivity.

Luckily, there are plenty of ways in which you can go about reversing this trend. From indoor team building activities to the simplest acts of everyday kindness; just because we are entering the greyer months of the year doesn’t mean that we must change our mood to suit the weather.

If you are finding it increasingly difficult to have a conversation with your colleagues, let alone a laugh or joke, it might well be time to take action. After all, the last thing you want is for every day in the office to feel like a Monday morning!

To help you out – before things get any worse – here are some great ways to help you cheer up your colleagues and liven up the office this autumn.

  • Brighten up the office. Introduce some new furniture, give the space a lick of paint or simply just open the blinds and let some natural light in
  • Encourage employees to add personal items to their desks. From photographs to ornaments to stationery, even the smallest touches can make an office feel more comfortable and familiar

  • Organise an exciting day of indoor team building activities. This way, everyone will escape the confines of the desks for a while and have some fun trying something new together
  • Plan a ‘dress down’ day. Even just one day a month without the need for formal office wear can do wonders for your employees’ happiness
  • Bring in some treats. Who can say no to delicious chocolate or a slice of cake?
  • Go out together for a team lunch. Even better if you can convince management to pay the bill!

Here at Team Challenge Company, we can offer a wide range of indoor team building activities to suit the requirements of any team. If you would like more information about any of the services or activities we provide, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team today or call us on 03300 040903.
