A team building event can sharply divide opinion among both management and employees. Some see these activities as vital to strengthening the bonds between coworkers, making employees more effective and conscientious as members of a team. Others can view these exercises as a distraction that takes them away from important work that is only piling up while they are away from the office.
The effectiveness of a team-building event depends largely on the goal of the exercise. Team-building for its own sake can often lead to unfocused outcomes and actually create divisions between individuals or groups in the workplace.
