In downtown Austin, TX there is a movie theatre called Alamo Drafthouse. It is a great place to go and watch movies because you can order drinks and food while you are watching the movie. Every year my management company, San Miguel Management, does an employee team building at Alamo Drafthouse. We begin our day with a scavenger hunt through the downtown area. We divide up into teams. The teams consist of all employees including the inside office team, the corporate office and the outside maintenance team. We strategically place each team member so that they are interacting with someone that they do not work with on an daily basis. We divide up and compete for points. In order to get points you must complete a scavenger hunt that takes on a journey of acting like a fool. You must find clues throughout the downtown area while doing tasks along the way. Your task check list includes things like put a dog on your head, dance on a bar, wear a funny hat, shake hands with a police officer, or moonwalk across the street. Each team is given a video camera to provide proof of completion. After the scavenger hunt is over all the teams meet back at the movie theatre and we watch the pictures on the movie screen. It is a very funny sight! Once the winning team has been determined, the entire company watches a movie and enjoys lunch together. This is a great way for our company to bond, get to know new members and have a good time together! All of our employees look forward to it every year!
