This month’s get-together was a Family Feud competition between Journyx and our business partner and next door office neighbor, AimSourcing. I wanted to share this as just another idea to get the team together in the spirit of competition.
The photo collage below showcases the flier we posted around the office to remind the staff of the event. In the shot, my mustache is a printed paper replication of the one Steve Harvey sports as the current Family Feud host… in case the resemblance wasn't too obvious! Top right is a photo of our conquering team beaming proudly about their recent victory. Bottom right, I’m congratulating Stephen, the winner of the gift card prize drawing only offered to the team who came out on top.

If you work in an office, you know how hard it can be to get employees to participate in team building events. Usually they're boring or awkward or irrelevant - or a combination of all three. At Journyx, we won't settle for that! Last Tuesday, the Journyx team got together and polished off some very tasty Torchy’s Tacos and watched TED Talks. (Notice the "T" theme?) We watched two popular TED Talks in our conference room as we munched on our lunch. Here are links to the Talks we watched - you still have time to grab your taco!
Steve Jobs: How To Live Before You Die

It’s worth it to do something fun and out of the norm for your office that will get your team excited (or at least bring them together). Sometimes the workplace can seem disconnected. Bonding is great for co-workers and has statically been proven to jumpstart efficiency. With an event like this, who can complain? Especially if you fill your mind AND your tummy at the same time!
What are things you’ve done in your office to open up the workplace? Anything you want to try?
