Sometimes a teambuilding event is more about the purpose than the activity. In our new world of mergers and acquisitions, companies often restructure and have created new groups that have to work together.
Whether it is the consolidation of employees, closing offices, or acquiring a new group, a destination team building event can help overcome issues with changing corporate culture.
When people come from different backgrounds, you run the risk of having people not being able to see eye-to-eye. This means that it is all the more important
to create activities that would get people to see each other as human beings as opposed to job titles or backgrounds.
Preventing bickering and fighting requires that people find common ground. Often that can be a simple process. Just get people to better know each other as human beings as opposed to job titles and they sometimes resolve the issues on their own.
It is very easy in an office environment to suspect the motives of fellow employees. This is even more true if the people came from another company or group within an organization. After all, they're just a bunch of job titles and they might be after your job, or still owing allegiance to another silo within the company. The more human that everyone becomes, the less likely it would be for that to be the case. People are less suspicious of one another if they identify with one another.
Then again, maybe just bowling together can achieve the goal you desire. The important thing is to try to get the team to bond and understand it from an objective position. By doing so, you can evaluate whether you need to hire a professional corporate culture change workshop or can resolve the issues yourself.
