Fun with a Purpose At GlassRoots, we believe that professional team building is more than a game. It’s based on the relationships between you and your co-workers, and building the strength and stamina that will lead your team, your clients and your organization to success.
Why Team Building? Team building can benefit organizations in regard to on-boarding and professional development:
On-boarding interactive activities help provide a foundation for alignment with core values and team goals. Whether you are hiring new employees, summer associates, interns, medical residents, or temporary employees, it is critical for organizations to get new hires involved with existing or new teams as quickly as possible.
What are your history, foundation and purpose? How do you represent your values and goals to your employees and clients? GlassRoots will work with your organization to discover these answers in order to customize team building programs that allow the employees to get connected to their employer's roots.
New concepts and ideas are taking your industry into new territories. Staying with the tried and true may not be appropriate. At GlassRoots, your team takes risks and explores creativity in a way that opens up individuals to new ideas and viewpoints.
