What is a cooking team building activity?

A cooking team building activity uses culinary concepts to bring teams together and to achieve organisational goals. In this time of a prolonged pandemic, cooking team building activities can help your teams communicate better, strategise achieving specific goals, and communicate more cohesively amid changes in the workplace.

How can team building activities effectively engage your teams? We’ve identified four ways:

Cooking team building activities in Singapore give people a sense of structure

The pandemic has decentralised workplaces. Work isn’t at a physical set location you go to daily, it is at home. Some team members breeze through this reality without any issue while others feel their routine and sense of order have been thrown in disarray. 

Team building activities can give your teams a sense of structure and help team members adjust to their new work environment. It’s a great way to make your teams feel that their welfare is looked after, and that you care that they feel connected to the rest of the team even if they are working from home.

Palate Sensations Team Building is Singapore’s foremost provider of virtual, off-site and in-studio Cooking Team Building activities. Our programmes are carefully curated with specific development targets in mind, be it in team communication or leadership or enhancing problem-solving skills. Check out our programmes.

  • Team building activities in Singapore encourage honest and trusting team communication

Communication builds bridges towards productivity. Communicating using online platforms (email and chat groups), where the tone and non-verbal components of communication are not easily demonstrated, could cause messages to get lost in translation, and this could potentially disrupt team cohesion. Team building activities foster team unity by helping your teams understand and communicate smoothly and effectively with each other. 

When teams work together on a common activity or to resolve a challenge, they learn to communicate better, trust each other, and understand and work towards a shared aspiration.

  • Team building activities in Singapore help teams stay productive and develop leadership skills

All work and no play make employees dull. Team building activities are investments towards wellness. Taking a step back from deadlines and other more urgent matters to sharpen one’s saw is a worthwhile endeavour that promises greater rewards in the long-term in terms of lower attrition rate, greater job satisfaction, increased loyalty and dedication to work, among others.

Finishing tasks together can be encouraging for your teams who are inclined to feel more appreciated in the workplace, which in turn will make them confident about themselves and give them a sense that they are making a difference. This boosted morale will, in turn, increase the employees’ productivity and inspire leaders amongst them.

  • Team building helps preserve the company’s culture

If there is one important lesson this pandemic is teaching us, it is that a culture of innovation and resilience is much needed for teams and businesses to surmount the challenges this health crisis has placed upon us. We’re seeing some businesses forging on, while others have had to close due to revenue losses. Businesses that have pivoted and innovated quickly to new business models, and those that have rallied their teams successfully to support each other during this transition, are among those that are successfully weathering this storm. 

Covid-19 is indeed putting team spirit to the test. If you are a business and you have managed to keep your team together through this time, make the investment for a team building activity that will solidify your team’s strength. After all, your best assets are your employees and you rely on them to take your business and your company to a more stable ground and to remain unshakable amidst this time of great uncertainty.

Palate Sensations Team Building helps companies strengthen teams through our carefully curated cooking team building programmes that can be offered in-studio, off-site at your preferred location, and virtually.  Check out our programmes and contact us to learn more.
