While the 9 to 5 approach was once considered the key to achieving workplace efficiency, many companies have increasingly come to realize that there is another major factor determining success – employee satisfaction. To this end, team building has become a core HR practice in most large-scale organizations across the globe and Daewoo Pakistan is no different. As part of its policy, Daewoo employees within each department are encouraged to take an annual, all-expenses-paid trip together to a destination of their choice. Beyond the recreational part, the benefits of this team-building activity are long lasting: it reduces stress, fosters better communication between team members, boosts morale and encourages creativity.
For its annual company trip, Team Destinations headed to Swat over a weekend of adventure, camaraderie and the great outdoors. Here, we share our collective wisdom with those of you wishing to set off on a similar trip to discover the best of Pakistan’s North.
