They say that teams that play together stay together. This is not without reason. A study titled, “Impact of Team Building Exercises on Team Effectiveness” confirmed that team building exercises have positive impact on team effectiveness.
But what kind of activities work best? In an article he wrote for Forbes, Brian Scudamore, founder and CEO of O2E Brands, opined that the most successful, memorable team-building events are ones that don’t feel like a day at the office. This may not come as a surprise since 60% of employees in Singapore have admitted to having above average or high levels of work-related stress, and employees in APAC are among the most vacation deprived.
When it comes to non-office-like events, what could be better than a day at a resort?
