A Boston Team Building Event
First, we had a fantastically festive bus ride full of ice breakers, music and social media. Oh, there was also a singing elf hat. Who could ask for more?
Once we arrived in Jamaica Plain, we got off the bus for more ice breakers, a shared lunch and started to get to work.
The Community Servings Volunteer Management Coordinator, Malissa Harmon, was hands down one of the highlights of this Boston team building event. She has been with the organization for over 13 years and walked our entire team through an orientation that included a ton of information about the daily contributions of Community Servings.
Community Servings prepares and delivers 7,500 lunches and dinners each week to the homes of almost 800 individuals and families who are homebound with an acute life-threatening illness. That’s just the tip of the iceberg! Their program initiatives include food service training, nutritional education, international assistance, social enterprise and so, so, so much more. This explains why the Patriot ledger was there to run three pieces about their programs. Count ’em. Three!
- Non-profit serves up Christmas year-round to severely ill
- Community Servings serves up help
- Community Servings delivers meals and hope
Before this team building event in Boston, most of us had honestly never heard of Community Servings. That’s the beauty of the Do Good Bus by TeamBonding. We bonded over doing good and having a shared experience – one that we may have never discovered by simply volunteering as individuals or small groups. Many members of our team are even planning to go back and help out again!

We’ve outlined five steps for starting and managing a remote team with a focus on building culture. No longer a special arrangement for a handful of team members, remote work has become more common than ever. Today, the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed work from home mandates, and many companies need to start and manage remote teams, fast.
In a world rife with distractions and a population more easily sidetracked than ever, it’s becoming more and more difficult for companies to keep their employee morale strong.
With a new year comes new goals and challenges. As a business owner or manager, some of those challenges include figuring out how to increase numbers and maximize efficiency. Most of your success, however, comes down to one thing – improving work performance.
Consider the experience of starting a job from the perspective of your newly hired employees.
