Top Team Building Activities Awards 2022

Always wondered what’s popular and trending in the team building market now that the pandemic is finally over or simply looking for something fun and different to do with your team? We’ve got your back.

Introducing…. Our first ever team building popularity awards where we share with you the top activities I’ll clients have picked in 2022 to save you time and hassle of searching all around the internet.

Most Popular Race Based Activity – The Running Man
Coming in at over 100 events for the year was our ever consistent and uber popular Amazing Race which started our 10 year-journey in the team building space.  From starting out in 2013 with offering just 3 locations of Sentosa, City Hall & the CBD, we’ve literally expanded to offering customized races around the island from Gardens By The Bay, a traditional heritage journey around Chinatown and multiple island-wide races where we’ve even helped a number of organizations tailor their employee inductions into a fun race even visiting their various sites.

Oh yes, don’t worry our race isn’t just a hunt with quizze and clues as apart from a wide 30-game selection for you to pick from with loads of team elements, we’ve also got many of twists & turns, fast passes & detours packed within.

Most Popular Outdoor Activity (Non-Race) – The Running Man
Coming in as the top in the non-race outdoor activity and going just above 100 events like our Amazing Race was the Running Man Challenge which was very popular for the smaller group sizes probably because it allowed the most interaction across whole groups with many inter-team battles and loads of laughter. The best part, it was also one of the rare few outdoor activities that allowed for a full wet-weather contingency as it could be done fully outdoors, open places with a shelter, in futsal pitches, sports hall & even few function/ hotel rooms. Oh yes, in case we also forgot to mentioned, we’ve introduced over 10 new missions that are not too physical whilst also ensuring all inclusivity to allow for a great team bonding time.

Most Popular Indoor Activity – DIY Coaster Adventure
A surprise for our team and even our regular clients was DIY Coaster Adventure coming in top place after all numbers was tabulated knocking off our One World Pipeline activity that somehow maintained the top spot squarely since we started our journey in the team building space  pre-pandemic. Despite us introducing the activity somewhere in the midst of the year, it very quickly gained popularity even hitting up to 15 events for the month at it’s peak. With it’s many collaborative elements across teams and entire groups whilst ensuring everyone’s creativity comes to life, it’s the perfect combination for those looking for an indoor team building fix with a little physicality.

The Trendsetter Award – The Squid Game
Who knew a television show could so greatly captivate our hearts & our minds? This year’s trend-setter award goes to Squid Game! Showdown which we introduced after fielding many enquiries brought my everyone’s addiction to the show. The main differences from the actual show and ours? Don’t worry no one will have to die and we’ve also managed to find ways for teams to work together and navigate missions without trying to harm each other all whilst sticking true to the original games. Think Dalgona Candy Trace & Red Light, Green Light.

Most Popular Overseas Location – Bonus
This year’s most popular overseas retreat location went to Batam with Bintan & Desaru trailing over many events behind and Penang & Bali rounding the top 5. With over 4 ferry operators offering daily routes and more than 30 ferries plying the route daily, the rest never had much of a chance with only 1 to 2 ferries a day plus potential jams at the causeway for Desaru & Batam.

Back to Batam, we are really glad to see the city and hotels plus resorts come back to life and our favorites Harris Barelang Batam & Radisson Batam booming with business. From mini resort amazing races, customized challenges on hotel beachfronts and even featuring ATVs in adventures, shopping and really good kelongs, there’s always going to be something for everyone.

We hope that the above information gives you some insights into what’s hot and popular right now but remember, no two companies, objectives and profile of participants are the same so it’s also ok to pick what’s best for you.
