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.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (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%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.

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?
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.
