It’s a well-worn line – the family that plays together, stays together. But the saying holds true, and it works in business as well.
M3 Group has what we’ve dubbed the Buzz Team that meets monthly to plan and execute events and surprises for staff. However big or small, we find the experience helps us connect and bond as a group. In turn, that bonding helps us work together efficiently and creates a level of trust and respect.
In 2018 we’ve gone bowling, played laser tag, celebrated Cinco de Mayo together, held barbecues and countless themed potluck lunches.
The Buzz Team has also coordinated baby and bridal mini-showers for staff and celebrates achievements with fun and games.
Recently for Halloween, we went all out in the quest for best costume and decorated desk honors. While we didn’t spend hours on the process – it was great team bonding and helped spur creativity in our work as the day went on.
To finish out the year, we will enjoy a real Thanksgiving feast together, have “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” play Secret Santa and enjoy our company holiday party.
The “work hard, play hard” motto works well for M3 Group. If your crew needs a little nudge to get to know each other and bond, consider making a Buzz Team of your own.
