After 48% Growth over the Last Three Years, Team-Building Leader Looks to Drive Further Growth with Beta Launch of YoYo in Boston.
BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) AUGUST 12, 2015
TeamBonding, a leader in team-building that helps companies of all sizes foster communication, create deeper bonds and more efficiency amongst employees through customized events and activities, today announced that it has been ranked no. 4840 by Inc Magazine in the 34th annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This marks the fifth time that TeamBonding has been named to the list.
“It’s an incredible honor to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the fifth time,” said David Goldstein, TeamBonding’s Founder & CEO. “Over the past three years we’ve seen a 48 percent growth rate as companies continue to realize the bottom-line benefits of team building through unique events. It’s not only a positive sign for our business, but also proof that corporations, today more than ever, value their employees and clients, and want to give them the resources needed to build deeper bonds.”
With unique TeamBuilding exercises, including the #DoGoodBus, a community service driven event that shuttles team members along a rewarding day volunteering with local non-profits, TeamBonding is focused on creative, fun events that provide a more engaging alternative to traditional corporate development events while delivering on specific business goals.
In addition, after more than two decades in the team building space, TeamBonding is taking its learnings to YoYo, a new turnkey team building events marketplace that provides a fully transparent, one stop shop, for booking outings. The service, which is now live in beta for the Boston market and launching soon nationally, caters to companies of all sizes, but is strategically designed to assist startups that may not have the time, resources, or budget for traditional team building events, but who rely heavily on the strength and cohesion of their teams.
“If you are an organization looking to plan a team building exercise or unique corporate event, you want a service that allows you to search for options based on your specific needs, budget and other requirements,” added Goldstein. “There aren’t many options for doing this today, and for this reason, planning an event often ends up being a lot more painful than it needs to be. YoYo brings all this information into one place to make booking the right event for your team as simple as reserving a personal dinner out on OpenTable.”

(available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%.

Rather than expecting office life to “go back to normal” after coronavirus, business and team leaders should be planning for what many are calling the “new normal.” So what does team-building after COVID-19 look like? For starters, it includes safe and sanitary workspaces for employees, potentially more remote hires, and flexible work-from-home policies.
As a food writer for Zagat, I used to scribble stories about all sorts of people: chefs, butcher, bakers. About seven years ago, I had an interesting interview with a bean-to-bar chocolate maker. I learned all about how she created her chocolate from scratch. Instead of telling me about commonplace machines like grinders and enrobers, she started talking about using rotisserie chicken roasters, juicers, and hair dryers!
First off, what is a digital workspace? A digital workspace is a technological framework that centralizes an organization’s applications, data, and desktop delivery. It allows employees to access their apps and data on any device and from any location.
Given the state of the current environment, businesses everywhere are adjusting to remote work. Whether your organization is a veteran to remote work policies, or entirely new to the concept, successfully maintaining a remote team requires the same general best practices as a traditional one would. Fortunately, this growing trend offers a plethora of benefits for both employees and businesses overall. From greater flexibility to improved productivity, the switch to remote work can be a liberating thing when properly managed. That said, proper management begins with ensuring your remote employees are equipped with all necessary tools to perform their jobs both efficiently and securely. Now more than ever, cybercriminals are targeting remote workers, and in these fast-paced times, it’s important you feel confident in the security of your business and the data behind it. To help make certain of that, we’re sharing a few cybersecurity best practices to reduce the risk of your remote employees falling victim to an attack.
During this unique time, we are all experiencing feelings of fearful anticipation. News changes from hour to hour, and we are needing to be more flexible than ever. With many being requested to work remotely, our trust issues will be triggered. Becoming aware of this will assist you in adapting to this situation.
Remote workers need to feel connected to one another as much as an “IRL” team in an office environment. The trick is figuring out team huddle ideas that bridge physical gaps. Whether your team went remote recently due to COVID-19 restrictions or are permanently remote, a sense of bonding and community is essential to productivity. It also builds friendships, and many remote team members look forward to team huddles as a time to check-in and connect.
Employee productivity is essential to building and maintaining a successful company. It may be hard to believe, but the average worker is said to only be productive 2 hours and 23 minutes out of an 8-hour workday. Employees are often distracted by unwork related items such as social media, news websites, chatting with colleagues, snacking, and even job searching.
So, you suddenly found yourself managing a remote team? Here you will understand the benefits of virtual team building as we share activity ideas you can implement. Remote work has been on the rise for years, and as COVID-19 is moving more teams online, remote team building is becoming a necessary step for business operations and human resources. It’s also an opportunity to get creative about how your team bonds and has fun in this new space, especially during stressful times.
