Today corporate companies are all about productivity and getting their job done. Employees punch in and sit for long hours till the work is done, which leads to reduced output.
To give them space from their hectic schedule and break the pattern of tedium. Outbound training programs are a great initiative by the management to provide employees with a new environment that enables them to rediscover the spark of their minds. This sounds exactly like taking a vacation.
Outbound training is a mixture of adventure, outdoor and group development exercises. This program is designed to challenge the team to plan, strategize and work together.
This time the Business development team of smartData got the opportunity to be part of an outbound program to enhance self-development, teamwork and leadership. This program was initiated by the team of the Prasanchetas Foundation.
