Team Outing

This weekend is going to be a little different from the rest, coz I am off to an office team gathering at a resort near by. The event has been in discussion from the past 2 months and is going to happen tomorrow finally. The team outing is basically to have an interaction with our peers outside the office more socially and get to know each other better. We are totally a team of 50 members out of them we hope nearly around 40 will turn up. Every year we have this kind of interaction during which the company sponsors the minimum possible budget to our team. We do a car pooling to save on transport. Breakfast and Lunch buffets are ordered and a few games are arranged. The main goal of this event is somehow lost due to different perspectives. First and foremost is people never want to meet their office peers on a Weekend. I am very sure that many turn up to the event coz it is made almost a mandatory one. :) Otherwise, who cares to travel up and down 2 hours on a sunny day to go play some really funny games for the purpose of satisfying others in the management. But this is yet another initiative to build more rapport with each other. Lets see how much we gain from it.

And sunday mom will be back in Hyderabad :) and then comes the colour festival. I have booked tickets for a movie too. Will come up with a separate post for Holi & the movie soon. Till then, wish all a Happy & a Safe Holi.


  1. As a matter of fact, these company holidays or rather the team building exercises are liked by most of the employees of the company. It is supposed to be fun...

  2. Hope the weekend is fun (I am definitely a much bigger fan of the midweek bonding session than the weekend one)...and have a Happy Holi (I really want to be there for that, it looks like so much fun!)

  3. Team outings r fun! Enjoy!

  4. Yep, safe Holi is the password.
    (heard that there were already 8 casualties all over the country)

  5. These team building exercises are really good for the company whould people choose to enjoy them ...

    Which movie did you go for then ??
