“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” –Andrew Carnegie
True that! An organization and its success are undoubtedly incomplete without a team. Every company needs to motivate its employees to work together. However, as a common saying – all work and no play can make us dull. It is necessary to initiate corporate team building activities in every company that brings all employees closer and makes them work together and experience all ups and downs by holding hands.
