That makes it easier to be motivated and push forward together.Moreover, we are all foodies: we regularly cook together and enjoy meals from all around the world.Some of our team-building activities include gourmet dinners at the office, Mario kart competitions, Dj sets, card games, and more. We also play some remote-friendly games via zoom, making it a good time for all employees.
