group can either share a movie and popcorn once a month at work or
invite family/friends to all meet at a local theater one evening a
month. Live plays may also be an option.
Co-workers can also offer to trade homes for this event, without pressure to force everyone to host. For those who can’t host, perhaps they can be in charge of snacks that would please everyone’s taste, so they feel they’re also an important contributor.
activities that foster team bonding should also include some form of
group relaxation. When inner calm is reached, groups automatically
entrain to a more unified field with fellow humans. Missed days from
work also tend to go down.

Either learn how to conduct sessions yourself or preferably, bring in someone who teaches the Relaxation Response or HeartMath, and over time, team bonding can improve remarkably.
