Boost employee morale with a winter team-building challenge

Winter is right around the corner and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a team-building challenge! Snow, rain, wind, or just a bit of a chill…no matter how severe the winter weather is, our employee team-building activities will help with company engagement and boost morale in the workplace. 

Why is a winter challenge important?

Did you know the transition into winter can trigger a form of depression called Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D) in some people? Symptoms include oversleeping, overeating, weight gain, and social withdrawal. This can mean less productivity at work and increased absenteeism. 

Even if your team is not dealing with S.A.D, encouraging them to get moving or engage in fun activities can still help them feel motivated and boost morale. 

Challenge details

Here’s a challenge idea to celebrate all the fun the winter months have to offer. 

Challenge name: [Your Company’s] Winter Challenge

Engage employees, regardless of their locations, around activities that encourage them to get active, make them feel warm and cozy, or both!⬇️

⛄️ Build a snowman with family

⛸ Try ice skating 

🏂 Go skiing or snowboarding

🍝 Cook a family meal

🧶 Knit a scarf or a hat 

Tip: Foster friendly competition with a snowman building contest, ski competition, or a team vote on the best looking home cooked meal. You can even offer prizes to the winners!

Have other activity ideas for your challenge? We have 350+ you can choose from! 

As your team completes the challenge activities, they can post photos to the atlasGO app for participants to see and support. Whether it’s a photo of them with their ice skates on, their home cooked meal, or their version of Frosty the Snowman, they’ll have countless ways to share their fun activities and inspire their colleagues along the way. 

That’s not all! Your winter challenge will even get a personalized filter in the atlasGO app, an added touch to customize your team’s photos. Employees will be able to support each other by exchanging virtual high fives, leaving motivational comments, and so much more!

Ready? Don’t worry, getting set up is simple.
