25 Fun Hybrid Team Building Events [2022 Guide]

There is now a need to explore hybrid team building events as employees head back to offices. The pandemic rules are easing creating more opportunities for connection among teammates.

Effective team building creates a culture of trust. It allows employees to strengthen their social bonds. In a low-risk environment, this allows them to explore new ideas with the safety net of humor.

Team building is a big motivator for employees to collaborate and reach goals. They will feel a deep sense of purpose and feel more fulfilled with the work they do.

When your employees work as a cohesive team, they contribute to your company’s success.

β€œThe best way to engage employees is to build a culture of trust – Jenny Gottstein”

Technology has allowed us to connect in new ways in the last couple of years. We have rounded up great hybrid team building events for your office in this article. The events are fun, crowd-pleasers, and engaging for employees both in and out of the office.

What are hybrid team building events?

Hybrid team building events combine both in-person and virtual elements of team bonding. This creates stronger relationships between team members.

It is usually some employees gathering in person, while others join virtually.

The goal is to keep the whole team engaged. Bring your team together through fun activities and games in a hybrid format.

How to organize hybrid team building events successfully?

Do thorough planning to organize hybrid team building activities. You are bringing together two different groups of attendees. Planning ahead will help you engage both groups effectively.

Read on to understand the process of planning hybrid team bonding activities.

Set Clear Goals

Develop a plan of action to organize your hybrid event. To do this, you must answer the 7Ws as follows:

  1. Who is the event intended for?
  2. What will they discover?
  3. Why will the event interest them?
  4. Where will it take place?
  5. When will it happen?
  6. Who will supervise the event?
  7. Who will make decisions for the event?

Planning hybrid team bonding activities will become a lot easier with the help of this guide. For the attendees, it will also give them a clear picture of what to expect from the events.

Define Your Budget

The following prompts will help you plan your budget for your hybrid event:

  • How much budget do you have to spend on this event?
  • Decide how much money to spend on in-person or in-office event production.
  • Decide how much money to spend on building the virtual event experience.
  • Consider new expenses such as:
    • Audio visual equipment & personnel
    • Emcee, host, or facilitator for both in-person and remote event experience
    • Virtual event platform & streaming bandwidth
    • Pandemic protocols
    • Health screenings
  • Consider potential savings such as:
    • Less F&B for reduced live audience size
    • Reduced or no travel for speakers and/or participants

Provide In-Person & Virtual Support

Certain individuals may need more assistance than others during team bonding activities.

Hybrid events are more complex. In-person attendees have to interact with those logging in remotely, and vice versa.

There may be too many things happening to keep track. Some may struggle and need tech support.

Provide support for all employees regardless of how they choose to attend. Communicate ahead of time with the links they need and a schedule of events.

Bring both groups of guests together to bond despite the different formats.

Leave Your Comfort Zone

Team building activities can be awkward. People are hesitant to engage with their peers and are shy at first.

But, it’s important to push everyone out of their comfort zones while keeping a positive mood.

Activities that bring out laughter can mask this discomfort.

Learn Something New

Joining hybrid events remotely is a big advantage for offices with diverse team locations

Hybrid team building events should involve people learning something new.

It will be ineffective if your employees do not learn something new as a result of the team building event. It doesn’t mean you have to take a workshop together (though that can be a fun hybrid event idea).

The point is, when people learn something new, they leave their comfort zone. The event can be about themselves, their coworkers, and how to work better together.

Gather Feedback

The only way you can tell if a company’s team-building event was a success is by measuring its outcomes. You can achieve this by simply asking your hybrid teams for feedback.

Create a survey (ideally anonymous) that allows your employees to express their opinions.

Here are some questions to create for your hybrid event feedback survey:

  • How was this team building event for you?
  • What did you enjoy about this event?
  • What can we do better to organize hybrid events?
  • Do you have any ideas for future hybrid events at work?

The Ideal Hybrid Event Planning Checklist

Pre-EventChoose the right onsite and online platform.
Consider interaction options for virtual guests & the platform of choice. We prefer Zoom & Mentimeter due to live polling, etc.
Prepare polls and questions to launch during the event.
Practice & do an event dry run before the actual day. This will help you anticipate any hiccups and solve it proactively.

Set goals for the event and outcomes for participants. Communicate these ahead of time. Tell participants why they should join.
Remind guests multiple times in the lead up to the event date.
Highlight the benefits of the online experience for guests looking to attend remotely.
Provide location, safety and other crucial information for guests attending in person.
During EventLog in and test tech set-up 30 minutes prior to the event start time.

Ensure attendees are participating in the scheduled activities.

Ensure your F&B and other onsite vendors are following through on their responsibilities.

Prep for Q&A, and be ready to provide support for anyone facing difficulties.
Interactive sessions should be held separately.
Educate online participants around interaction tools and options, especially if it is a new tool for them.

Acknowledge both online and onsite attendees.

Work with an emcee onsite, and an online facilitator to keep the guests engaged.

Best Practices for Hybrid Team Building Events

How to communicate your safety protocol for your hybrid event?

Keep your office COVID-19 protocols handy as you organize your hybrid event. Communicate the safety protocol & expectations for your event. Think ahead about the group size limits for employees coming into the office/location for the event. Will you need employees to be vaccinated? How about temperature monitoring? Plan for contingencies and stay on the safe side.

Promote the event via company email. Get employees to RSVP especially if they plan to join in person. Provide a live count of how many people are joining physically and remotely. This will assist individuals in deciding whether they would prefer to attend in person or virtually. Also, display your policies at the venue and review them on the day of the event. Arrange for the necessary manpower to enforce your policies.

How to pick a safe venue for your hybrid event?

When it comes to hybrid event safety, the venue is the first step. More venue security features provide a more secure event experience for attendees. Here are some safety considerations to keep in mind while choosing a location for your event:

  • Capacity limitations
  • Space for social distancing
  • Outdoor space (weather permitting)
  • Sanitation facilities
  • Ceiling height
  • Windows and fans for circulation
  • Air purifiers
  • Food safety

How to choose hybrid events that work best for your team?

Consider the resources you have available to you. What are your company goals for this event? The right hybrid event format for your corporate event will depend on this.

Choosing a format for your event ensures you have an appropriate structure for the event.

For small-scale events, accommodating 5-20 people may be easier. Set up a meeting or conference rooms for in-person guests. Remote guests login virtually. Ensure you have thought about how to get the two parties to engage with each other.

For large-scale events, accommodating 20-200 people needs more planning. Consider a virtual location to pair with the physical location. Both in person and remote guests can mingle in different ways.

Also, consider how facilitated the event will be. Should everything be organised & structured? Or do you want things to unfold organically?

Work with your events organizer to work out the answers to delight your team need.

How to measure your hybrid event success?

Hybrid events are effective to increase ROI, local and global employee engagement.

Measure the success of your hybrid event by choosing key metrics and KPIs. Analyse attendance rates, engagement rates, sign-ups and post-event testimonials. These vital data points will tell you whether you are on track to creating cohesion at work.

Use a tool like FLOOR. It is a powerful virtual event system with integrated data analytics. It lets hybrid event organizers measure KPIs for their events.

How to ensure that everyone has fun at your hybrid event?

Find effective ways to engage your employees

Bringing everyone together is the most important aspect of any event. Your next goal, though, is to keep your audience engaged. People prefer to attend events where they can meet like-minded peers & learn new things. They also enjoy fun activities that are easy to take part in.

The purpose of an event is to offer your office employees and remote workers a good time. Get everyone involved. Engage with your virtual guests through polls, quizzes and games. Also, include a question-and-answer session for your virtual attendees. Announce the winners at the end to keep the suspense. Consider novel and unique activity ideas that will make this a standout experience. Discuss it with the organizing team.

Keep sessions brief and the pace quick to maintain interest.

It is hard to keep your online guests glued to their screens all day. Break up the event into mini-sessions and activities. Fill in the time where remote guests can also engage in a hands-on activity. Time your sessions well, and provide breaks.

If you have speakers, make sure they are well-prepared to discuss important themes. A slow event will result in a passive audience. Keep the energy up for all guests, both on location and virtual.

While we’re on the topic of hybrid events, we’ve also written a guide to maximising productivity & collaboration in the hybrid office.
