All businesses need activities to build camaraderie among employees. If a company has a handful of employees or 100+, teamwork can produce positive results. Progress was made when employees feel a commitment to each other and try to work together rather than working as individuals with only personal interests.
The purpose of team building is not the development of personal relationships out of business, but sometimes, this could develop. The purpose is to improve the productivity and efficiency of a company to have employees work harmoniously together to set goals for the company above their own. Typically, spouses and partners are not included since the purpose is to promote business synergy among employees. When others are involved, employees have a tendency to "stick" to the person who came with negating the effect and purpose of these activities.

A small amount of team-working in communications and interpersonal relationships can produce big profits for a business. Two individuals may be unfamiliar to someday but ineffective communication partners can be the next day, after participating in such activity.
There are many different types of team building activities. A company can spend as little or as much as they want and still achieve the same results. Depending on the type of business and people, some activities may be single or a few more common. These activities can take place during normal business hours if there is a sufficient number of employees to "hold the fort" while others have gone, or the formation of teams might have to do after hours.

Regardless of the activity, teamwork works.
