5 reasons a food tour is the perfect team building activity in the Capital Region


The first purpose of team building is always to share genuine, meaningful experiences. Bonding with your team members through activity outside of the office creates the opportunity to share some quality talking time. Breaking bread affirms trust, confidence, and comfort with an individual or group of people. Sharing quality time over a meal provides a base of friendliness and informality and helps strengthen team bonds.
