Discover the Best Holiday Team Building Activities

Everyone loves holidays. Celebrating holidays together is an important part of building a strong company culture, bringing cross-functional teams together, and giving everyone a little fun and rest at the office. 

Holidays can be inclusive ways for everyone to establish shared traditions or share some of their own. According to UNC Health Clinical Psychologist Crystal Schiller, celebrating holidays together encourages connection and community. She writes that, “Humans are naturally social and crave connection, so gatherings and traditions that bring [people] together can inspire community and connection.” 

Benefits of Holiday Team Building Activities

Jeff Tavangar, a Talent Acquisition Management Consultant and Professor at UC Irvine, writes that “holiday celebrations do more than just improve morale for a day. Having annual traditions in the workplace can increase employee motivation. It also contributes to team-building efforts and leads to more productive teams.” He cites “unity, togetherness, recognition, and motivation” as just some of the benefits of celebrating holidays in the workplace.

If you’re interested in signing your team up for holiday team-building activities, you should consider the options offered by Coursehorse. They have a large number of holiday-themed team-building activities centered on different holidays, including Christmas, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
