Bangalore is home to thousands of companies which also means that a large population that resides within the city is employees. Just like every organization has certain expectations from its employees, the same goes for the employees as well. They expect the organization to treat them beyond money churning machines and look after their overall growth and development. One of the important factors that contribute towards this is how well the organization looks after the employees and the additional perks that they provide apart from a monthly cheque.  

One common practice followed across most of the organizations are planning a corporate day outing for all the employees by the Human Resource Department of the organization. It brings together all the employees in one place, indulges them in some fun activities and increases the bond and motivation level among them.
