After an initial sift of nearly 1,400 scientific papers and reports from across the world, our work and learning evidence programme found that team activities are effective at making us happier at work. All the successful examples they found:
- Involved everyone – including people who might be reluctant to interact in shared activities.
- Had more than a one-off activity and carried on over time – examples ranged from as few as three one-hour workshops to a more extensive programme delivered over several years.
