These collaborative workplace innovations range from open concept office designs to corporate wine tour events. Standouts include team-building events that encourage staff members to bond in the great outdoors while ditching their digital devices. The rising popularity of niche digital detox experiences is reflective of employers' desire to strengthen team relationships while reducing the prevalence of screen time -- something that often takes over the lives of modern professionals.

Those with a flair for competition can build stronger staff relationships by engaging in a fitness-themed team building event like an archery or laser tag experience while those with a flair for creativity can try their hand at a maker space or team-focused culinary workshop.
