Every team at a company needs time away from the office. One of the best ways to get to know your coworkers better while also building teamwork and having fun is to schedule a private activity outside of your office space. Hosting a team-building activity increases happiness among employees. In fact, companies with happy employees perform 20% better than their competitors.
There are many different team-building activities your team can pursue, from getting involved in your local community to having a chill paint night to getting in some exercise by chasing each either down in laser tag, there is something for every team.
Read on for our top picks for team-building activities in Houston and Galveston, Texas.
1. Escape Hunt Houston
One of the best team-building activities is an escape room. Your group will have to work together to solve a mystery on a time crunch.

2. Battlefield Houston
If the members of your team like to stay fit, booking some time at Battlefield Houston is a great way for everyone to get exercise.
