Do you participate in many social activities with your fellow workers?
Example #1
"I try to participate in our company's extracurricular activities as often as possible. We will often do a quarterly get-together and go bowling, out for drinks, or throw together a baseball game with the kids and spouses. It's a lot of fun and always boosts morale in the office as well."
Example #2
"Our office is small, and we do not have many inter-office activities as most people have families to get home to after work. I would like to join an organization that has some sense of team-building, however. I would like to have a summer cookout or maybe even a Christmas party to attend! Could you tell me about the staff events you hold here?"
Example #3
"My team seem to enjoy it when I show up to events and happenings that are important to them in their personal life. As a manager, I have attended weddings of team members, a couple of kids birthday parties, and will buy a round of drinks for them at the pub after work now and then. A healthy balance of business and personal is important."
Example #4
"Our marketing group is full of highly social individuals. We will go out for a couple of rounds of cocktails most Fridays to unwind from our week and go over some of our biggest wins. It's a lot of fun to bond with my colleagues on a personal level as well; however, I am sure to remain professional and respect the boundaries of our relationship."
Example #5
"My current team likes to go out and party on weekends. Although that is not my style, I will go now and then for an hour or so to catch up with my colleagues and say hello. I prefer company led events like holiday parties, for instance."
Example #6
"As a territory sales manager, I travel a lot. This situation does not give me the opportunity to get out with my friends very often; let alone - my colleagues. I would like to have more opportunities to get to know my team better. Could you share with me how your team creates bonds outside of the workplace?"
Example #7
"We teachers are a social bunch! I would say that, aside from teacher conferences and workshops, I go out for drinks with the faculty about once a month. We like to go to karaoke and blow off a bit of steam from the week. It's good, clean fun."
