Korporatīvie pasākumi atpūtai un darbinieku saliedēšanai
Uzņēmumi arvien vairāk apzinās ārpusdarba pasākumu nozīmi kolektīva saliedēšanā, darbinieku motivācijā un kopīgu mērķu sasniegšanā kā vienotai komandai. Cilvēki iepazīst labāk viens otru, tādējādi veidojot savstarpējo komunikāciju, un cilvēciskas attiecības. Tas atspoguļojās turpmāk ikdienas komunikācijā un tā jau ir citā līmenī, jo kolēģi jau viens otru ir iepazinuši un viņiem kopā sanāk produktīvāk sastrādāties. Īpaši tas ir svarīgi starp nodaļām un departamentiem, starp kuriem ikdienā komunikācija notiek attālināti. Sporta spēles neorganizējam, tās lai organizē citi. Bet jebkurš cits formāts ir atbalstāms.
