Have you heard the buzz? Or, shall we say… bark?
TeamBonding has added a brand new philanthropic team building event to our roster – Paws for a Cause!
The statistics on homeless animals are sobering, but this program will have your team laughing and having a good time as they compete in building much needed items like dog beds, cat scratch pads and toys for local animal shelters and rescue organizations. With several severe weather incidences in recent history, such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and the many tornadoes that have hit the Midwest in recent years, many animals have been displaced from their homes. Animal shelters are almost always at capacity as a result of this unfortunate weather trend.
Paws for a Cause is one way for your group to help our furry friends be as comfortable as possible while they await permanent homes. Whether you are a group of animal lovers, or seasoned event professionals looking for something new in the world of team building, this is an innovative philanthropic program that you won’t want to miss!
In fact, we’ve already teamed up with a great organization in the Boston area to help them in their animal rescue efforts – Black Cat Rescue. In a recent Wordless Wednesday post we told you that black cats are half as likely to be adopted as other cats. Well, Black Cat Rescue is working to make that a thing of the past, and TeamBonding is looking forward to being able to help them as well as other organizations in their work.
Are you a Boston area business interested in a philanthropic team building event? If so, please consider Paws for a Cause so we can get these deserving felines some creature comforts!
Not from Boston? That’s still purrrfect. We’ll set you up to donate to a local area shelter or national relief effort.
What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here! When you don’t have anything new, inspiring, or challenging happening in the workplace, you may find you and your employees in a work rut. Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
Imagine if you will, that it’s 2006 again. The housing bubble has just burst, and the US economy is teetering on the brink of what will end up being the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. People are scared for the futures of their companies, and are cutting corners at every possible turn. No one is very eager to spend money on team building.
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!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
