Replacing Happy Hours
The 2009 paper "Does Team Building Work?" published in Small Group Research journal analysed data from 103 studies found that, effective team building exercises can have positive effects on team performance.
A more recent 2018 study showed that shared adversity can increase overall team creativity by fostering supportive interactions. Hence, this being an opportune time for employers and organisations to show their commitment to their employees' wellbeing.
