In this series of articles, we take five minutes to chat with a member of the TeamBonding team so you can get an idea of what sort of people we are.
In this installment we talked to Emily, our new Marketing Associate, about her favorite foods, her bucket list, and more!
How long have you been with TeamBonding?
I’ve been here for about 4 months now, since February 2016.
What do you do with your free time?
Oh, a number of different nerdy things. I collect comics, and do a lot of the stuff that goes along with that. I went to Boston Comic Con last year, and I’m shooting to go to New York Comic Con this coming year. I read a lot, and dabble in writing occasionally, though not with any seriousness.
I watch a lot of TV and movies, and play video games occasionally. I also love theater with a passion, so I try to stay involved in with the theater community as much as I can. Sometimes that means going to see plays, and other times it means actually getting involved with companies, but I love it all.
What is your favorite food?
Definitely pasta. I love all types of pasta, but I have a special soft spot for my family’s traditional red sauce. Growing up, pasta was a must have meal at least once a week in my family. When I’m trying to eat healthy, pasta’s the first thing I crave.
What can’t you live without?
As much as I hate to be a stereotypically millennial, the honest answer is probably my phone. I use it for everything! Calendars for work, keeping in touch with friends and family, reading on the bus or the subway, tracking when my bus is going to arrive, figuring out where I’m going and how to get there…. I could live without a lot of things I use daily, but man, I would have a really hard time getting by without my phone.
Something people may not know about you:
I play baritone horn! I started playing in high school, and played with a community band all through college. I haven’t played for over a year, which is a little sad, but it’s still something I enjoy dong.
What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
Most of it is travel related, if I’m being honest. I would love to go to Italy with my family. I don’t speak the language, which is a bit intimidating, but my father’s family is from there. It would be amazing to get to explore that part of my cultural heritage with them. I’d also love to go to Ireland some day, though not for any specific reason. It’s just a dream I’ve had since I was a kid. Lastly would probably be getting the chance to work at the Globe Theater and live in London for a year or two.

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.
