Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.

Know Me Better
Our first game requires everyone to make pairs. Everyone will find another colleague that they hardly know.
Now in that pair, both the members are supposed to ask them 3 questions -
- What is the most proud moment for you, at work or in personal life?
- Is there something about you that others don't know about?
- What is your most embarrassing moment in your life?
After this round of games is over, each pair will share the answers to the questions with everyone. This way, you will learn a little more about your colleagues and can relate on a more personal level.
You can choose from African or Samba drums for this. Every employee gets a drum and one person, who knows how to play them will stand in the middle. Make a circle around this person and follow the rhythms as guided.
The beat helps in bringing the team together. It energizes them along with increasing their concentration level. This is one of the best games that prompts cooperation among employees.
As an excellent employee motivation project, you can play scavenger hunt. You can play the game right inside the building by making a list of items to locate and make a map of the office. Then make groups (depending on how many employees there are) and hand each group a map and list of items. Ready, set, go! May the best group win.
These were some office games for employees that will not only motivate them, but also bring change at the workplace. Apart from these team building activities, there are many icebreaker games which you can organize. The main point is to keep everyone engaged and entertained. Only this way can employees come closer and get to know one another properly.
