Michael, President of Chrome Solutions, believes that team nights are important because they allow us to build bonds of trust with our colleagues. When we get together outside the office, we step out of our professional roles and connect with each other on a personal level. This leads to friendships and open channels of communication that supersede group projects and even departments.

Chrome Solutions team nights are also great ways to have fun and relieve stress. Our company-wide outings include indoor soccer, golfing, and even fun tournaments that help us associate one another with play, not just work. Whether we’re sweating it out on the field or racing golf carts on the links, we’re letting go of any professional worries and reminding ourselves just how good it feels to be on Team Chrome Solutions.

When selecting an activity for our team to enjoy, we try to follow a few simple guidelines. For example, we make sure it’s something that everyone can enjoy. Sports-themed activities are perfect for us, since we’re an athletic group that enjoys friendly competition. Of course, we want to push ourselves a little bit as well, which is where the contests come in. Stretching our comfort zones while we’re playing helps us feel more comfortable taking calculated risks in our careers.

These are just a few of the reasons we prioritize frequent team nights. Like Chrome Solutions on Facebook to learn more.
