Building Effective Relationships

"Teamwork is connected independence"

Many full-time employees spend more of their hours with co-workers than they do with their spouses and families. As such, it is important to allow employees the opportunity to build quality relationships with their co-workers. This can be accomplished through the organization of informal get-togethers away from work, as well as by encouraging employee interaction. There are many benefits that can be reaped by companies who allow and foster good relationships in the workplace.
