1. Award and Recognition Ceremonies: First on the list because of its importance, there is no doubt that your employees need to know that they are a value to the business. This is the type of event you can create yourself, within your business. The key is to make sure that everyone has been pinpointed for some good that they have accomplished over the last year.

2. Team Building Challenges: Every group is divided not by friends or peers but by random items such as the draw of the hat or even by birthdays. They have to beat the other teams. The challenges are activities that many can do.

3. Multi Activity Day: For those teams that may be smaller and more willing to take on a few physical challenges, head out to the activity field. You are sure to invigorate them.
