There’s no denying that the first month back at work after the holiday season can be a tough one. The decorations have been taken down and to make it worse, it’s still dark and cold outside *yawn.* If you’re looking for ways to motivate your team through the back to work blues, how to energise your staff in January, or keep your workplace engaged on Blue Monday then we’re here to help. Here’s our top energisers and icebreakers to kick start you and your team in 2020.

World of Change

After a few weeks of overindulgence, what better way to start the new year than with a team activity that gives back to lives around the world? We’ve partnered with B1G1, a social enterprise and non-profit organisation, to help teams create impact through action in this high energy team event.

World of Change is a fantastic challenge to engage hearts and minds while motivating and connecting teams for the busy year ahead.

Level Up

If there’s one team activity to wake your team up from their post-holiday lull, Level Up is most definitely it. In this fun, frenetic game, teams work their way through five levels of questions, puzzles and challenges, all whilst racing against the ticking clock and trying to score as many points as possible. We like to call it organised chaos with a purpose!

This high energy activity will blow away the cobwebs, motivate your team’s competitive edge and kick start 2020 in all the right ways.

Street Olympics

We know what you’re thinking and no, this isn’t a punishment for not joining the gym! Combining sports trivia, photo and video challenges and plenty of fun, Street Olympics encourages teams to get up on their feet and work together while exploring your chosen city, park or venue.

Energise your team by getting out of the office and back into the game for the new year. Go on, be a good sport!

Around The World

Let’s face it, the office doesn’t exactly spark motivation after the holidays. Until we figure out how to use teleportation, why not turn your team into explorers and your office into a virtual map with our Around The World Challenge?

As teams hop foot around the globe via our award-winning app, they are encouraged to use creativity and communication to unlock local, national and international challenges. From performing the Haka to building the Eiffel Tower out of lollipop sticks, it’s an adventure in more ways than one!

Spy School

A new year is the perfect excuse to channel a new set of skills, Spy School skills that is! Put your team to the ultimate test as they crack puzzles, codes and top secret challenges in a mission to work out who killed Agent Kelly. Thanks to our interactive map and live scoreboard features, teams can get energised out of the office and navigate their way around your chosen location like 007. Remember, if anyone asks, your mission is classified!

Professional spy or not, this competitive, fast paced challenge is sure to get everyone engaged and excited for 2020.
