Companies that have a strong sense of team tend to have greater employee satisfaction. Engaging staff in group activities outside of the office is a sure-fire way to build a positive team environment. It’s important to pick a sport or activity that most people can get involved with, of course. Whether it’s a company sports team, or just getting everyone together after work for drinks and a chat, it creates an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other outside of the office. It makes for some great water-cooler conversation the next day, and provides the chance for people in different areas of the company to mingle and get to know each other.
