Sure, falling backward off a platform and hoping to be caught creates trust, camaraderie and shared experiences that foster teamwork. A company fishing trip or holiday party can have the same impact.
Consider the value of a community service project. It offers the same benefits as these other techniques, costs less, proves commitment to the region in which you work, demonstrates company vision and values in practice and makes life better for someone in need.
The employees of Alure Home Improvements Inc. volunteer individually and as a group for numerous charitable organizations. The congratulatory ads placed by Alure employees and subcontractors when the Interfaith Nutrition Network recognized President Sal Ferro for his contributions show their pride in being associated with a firm that gives back (see quote at right).
