In today’s fast paced life with more or less no time for one’s own self, spending long hours at work, team building exercises beyond the workplace has quickly gained prominence.

Team building in the form of after office dinners, a stay at a retreat for a couple days (a mini paid vacation) or the most popular currently, a day outing with the team have gained immense weightage.
