Luxurious team lunches and dinners ,lavish team outings are very common in todays high profile software industry. The management and the members of the team are ready to spend thousands just for salads and desserts .
I accept and know the fact that this is a mentally stressful industry and its people need all these kind of relaxation and fun Yes it does develop team spirit .But the point is that why do we always focus on these to build team relationship and relaxation .
Why cant we change these in a way that it helps the very society where we live in ?
Why cant the java team organize a blood donation camp ?
Why cant the C++ team take a day off and visit a orphanage ?
Why cant a team move out to a slum and apply all those logic and knowledge they have to see how or what they can do improve the lives of the people there ?
Why cant a team think about the child dancing inside the rings for a piece of bun ?
These build team relationships too.
After all its we who should take care.And when we work as a team we can defnitely hit targets.
Make them laugh and see the almighty.
Why cant we do it ?
