Are you a company leader or Human Resources manager looking for new ways to infuse a little team-building fun into your workplace culture? Today’s employees are more productive and feel rewarded when employers take the necessary steps to incorporate R&R. And if you’re in New York City, you have a slew of team-building options to consider. Here are some brilliant NYC ideas for events and team-building.
Book a Museum Tour for Your Teams
Bring some culture to your company environment by booking museum tours for your staff. There are a host of educational and inspirational museum experiences throughout New York, including the Met and American Museum of Natural History. And they offer “museum hacks” specifically designed for team-building activities. Inquire about creating fun and competitive challenges, including charades, ice-breakers, and games.

Make a Pizza on the Lower East Side
Nothing brings a team together quite like food. And when you’re in New York, there’s only one food the group can agree on – New York-style pizza. So, schedule a staff day out at Pizza School NYC, where teams can make their own pies and have a great time in the kitchen. Maybe even cook up some friendly competition where the team leaders and managers get judged on their pizza creations!
Take a Brew and Distillery Tour
There are plenty of historical breweries and distillery tours throughout NYC. And booking a day to sample, relax, and learn about some of the area’s tastiest beverages might be just what your employees need to recharge.

There’s a main court, a flying foam pit, a bungee slingshot, and a dunk zone – perfect for employees who need to get their heads out of their work for a little exercise and high-energy, bouncing fun.
