It is safe to say, teams that sweat together stay together. Aleuro Inc, a private marketing and sales firm in San Antonio, Texas believes in the power of team bonding inside and outside of the office. Weekly, we host a “Team Night” where our entire company gathers outside of the office on Wednesday nights for events such as: bowling, sand volleyball, corn hole, movies, and last nights favorite dodge ball!
You may wonder, “I see these people for 8 hours a day, why would I want to see them outside of work?!” We wondered this too, until we read the following article below, and it transformed our idea on building culture both inside and outside of the office.
“Team-building events can help co-workers better understand one another and learn to be more effective at working together. Team-building exercises allow management and staff to forget about deadlines and corporate structure and focus on socializing informally. These exercises can also help employees work on more serious issues, such as learning problem-solving techniques and improving communication skills. This all helps them to build trust, which goes a long way toward achieving better communication.”
Aleuro Inc. is not your typical company. We believe the more fun one has in the work place and the more positive the environment, the higher a team member will preform. Life should not be an escape from work, it should be a second home.
