Does team-building lead to cheating?

cheating, team building, companies, work, relation

The idea of writing this article was in my mind long before reading “the truth about why men cheat” by Nicole Yorio from Redbook, but I guess this article triggered the actual act of writing.

One of the negative counterparts of the team-building, when the companies don’t allow the partners of the employees to take part at the organized activities, is the colleagues’ affective involvement, sometimes to the extent of forgetting their families and partners back home. Unfortunately, I am telling from first hand experience that big and famous multinational companies repeatedly do this type of mistakes, which step by step, lead to divorce.

If it were up to me, I would have requested the obligation of the companies to stipulate in the labor contracts their team-building policy. I by no means have the intention to find excuses to the less responsible or with lower morals standards employees, but I have to admit that, at times like Christmas, Easter, New Year Eve, and other important feasts or celebrations, when the employees should have the possibility to be beside their partners and families, the temptation is really high to get emotionally involved with the colleagues and to start a long term relationship since the time at work exceeds the time at home.

The companies which forbid the presence of the employees’ partners during the team-building activities, even if they would gladly come on their own expense, should bear the legal consequences in terms of lawsuits for destroying marriages.
