Quarantine-Proof Team Building Activities to Try

On-and-off lockdowns can be super stressful, especially if your employees are in desperate need of bonding time! We know you’re just as confused as we are about what we can do or where we can go during the different types of quarantines (GCQ, ECQ, MECQ, EWANQ!), so planning an in-person meet isn’t exactly advisable these days! But that doesn’t mean your team can’t have fun together.

No matter how big or small your group is, SHOOR has a long list of 100% quarantine-proof virtual team building activities you can try. Here’s just some of them:

Step up to the [trending] challenge

The World of Trending Challenges - virtual team building

Unless you guys live under a rock, there’s no way you won’t know about the latest and most viral challenges on TikTok — so why not get in on the action with your team? From local and international dance challenges to lip sync battles, yummy snack food ideas to designer coffee hacks, dress ups and cosplays to bottle flips, completing these challenges make a fun group activity for your team.

Solve World War 3: A SHOOR Original Mystery

Find all the clues, decode the cipher, and solve the mystery — or the world’s gonna go to war! Challenge your team to put their heads together to figure out who’s behind this apocalyptic plot and save the world before it’s too late. Good luck!

World War 3 is the just the first of a series of immersive 360 virtual mystery games brought to you by SHOOR (there’s more coming your way, so stay tuned!). But if you want something that’s as exclusive as it is original, drop us a line and we can create a custom 360 virtual experience (like an office-themed escape room!) for your team and/or company.

Play Heads Up! — a virtual Pinoy Henyo

Team Building Activity: Heads Up

While everyone knows how this super popular game goes IRL, doing it virtually can be a bit tricky. You might end up accidentally revealing the mystery word with the press of a wrong button! But don’t worry, SHOOR’s got this figured out — all you’ll really need to do is find a partner and join the game, and have loads of fun, too!

Go on a mini-retreat together

There’s just so much going on in the world these days, and when you add in the pressures of work, things can get overwhelming for everyone. So why not take your team on a virtual mini-retreat with a guided session on Mindfulness Meditation? Not only does meditation help people manage stress and reduce negative emotions, it can also lead to increased self-awareness, improved concentration, and even enhanced creativity.

Have a virtual sing-off

Virtual Singing Bee: Ultimate Lyric Champ

This one may be an oldie but it’s definitely a goodie — especially for us Pinoys, because we just absolutely LOVE our karaoke! Get the team together for some bonding time over music and lyrics with the super fun Virtual Singing Bee: Ultimate Lyric Champ on SHOOR.

Be kids again and play [virtual] Bring Me

Virtual Bring Me - an online team building activity

These days, we could all use a pause from adulting, right? We’ve got just the game for that! A throwback to the parlor games of all those kiddie parties we went to in the 90s, SHOOR’s Virtual Bring Me brings a lot of them childhood feels. This may get your employees nostalgic, but be warned: they could get ultra competitive on this, too!

Break a sweat with a group workout

The team that sweats together, stays together — and achieves amazing things together, too! Get everyone off work so they can get healthier together with a group workout. Choose from different workouts available (high intensity interval training, flow yoga, pilates, Zumba, and more) and let’s schedule that Team Sweat Sesh, stat!

Search the world [wide web] to piece together a puzzle

Scavenger Hunt: virtual team building activity

From clues hiding in plain sight to answers that you need to scour the internet for, SHOOR’s virtual Scavenger Hunt will bring out the inner sleuth in your employees! Let them bond as they race to complete the mystery puzzle.

And on a more serious note, this activity can help teach or remind the team of the importance of open communication, cooperation, and accountability in the workplace!

Don’t be a drag — party like a queen

Drag: Party of the Queens - virtual team building activity

Take your Zoom/Google Meet/MS Teams/Slido happy hour to the next level by turning it into a Party of the [Drag] Queens! Book this experience and we’ll not only host the bash, we’ll also send everyone an experience kit so everyone gets to have a little bit of drag party dress-up fun!  Alcohol not included.

An aside: This is even more perfect if a lot of people in your team are RPDR superfans!
