Actively enhancing your local community is essential to your organization’s success. Gain insight on why it’s so important and ways you can start. Make it a team effort and most importantly, make it fun!
Charitable events are a great way to step up and give back to your local community. There is always plenty of opportunity to do this. Any effort put forth is effort that will enhance and engage your community. It can be as simple as picking up trash on the sidewalk. Contribute what you can and watch your community transform.
In addition to being helpful to your community, your community can be helpful to you! By working together you’ll be able to network and increase the exposure of your business all while making your local community stronger. Other adults and even children will look up to you and might even make the decision to join. The more the merrier!
Get together with your team from work and try some of these activities in your city or town. You will soon find that taking part in charitable activities can even help boost office morale.
Town/city common area gatherings:
…if everyone volunteers a portion of their time to help out a cause, so much would get accomplished in areas that need extra attention. To help make this possible, there are companies that offer incentives for volunteer work! Participants can earn things like paid time off by participating in volunteer work, which leads to employee engagement, natural team bonding and employee retention. It’s also a perfect fit for those with very busy work/life schedules.
What will your first course of action be? What causes mean the most to you and the company you work for? Round up your team at work and set out to make a difference in your local community!

At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Team building games and ice breaker activities for adults can keep your team bonded throughout the year. Get started with this simple DIY team building exercise. EXERCISE GOAL: Participants will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and those around them through ice breaker activities. (more…)
Believe it or not, you can have fun at work! Switch things up at the office and try some new, fun team building activities for work to get everyone energized.
Throughout history many leaders have inspired us to change the world from Gandhi to Alexander the Great. These particular leaders didn’t leave a mark by just hanging out. They led by taking action and inspiring people to follow them.
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective. You’ll get a behind the scenes view of what happens before the event and the preparation that goes into it. I’ll be posting blog posts about my observations and experience at each event. Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This time I went to a Team Teddy Rescue Bear.

#1 Carpools, rideshares and biking. Oh my! Going green isn’t just about what you do at home. If you’re spending 40 hours a week at work, that’s likely over 35% of your waking life in an office. You may have noticed that for a team of people, that much time in the office can all add up to a lot of waste.
Memorial Day reminds us that summer is close but don’t forget what the true meaning behind the day is! Memorial Day can have different meanings for everyone. Often times, people use this day as a celebration for the arrival of summer. Cookouts, family reunions and a 3-day-weekend are all a blast but they can take away the importance of what the day truly signifies. While you celebrate good food and loved ones, don’t forget to pay your respects to those who have died fighting for our country. Pause, reflect and honor.
