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.

The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented.

Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork.

“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done.

Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.
