Celebrations are mostly seen as a part of human culture to nurture relationships and strengthen human values. In business culture, celebrations are essential to cement the bond between the company and its workforce. It also allows an enterprise to show employees how much they value them.  However, only a few enterprises realize the value of celebrations in business culture. AAPNA Infotech is one among them.

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” No one knows the meaning of this age-old proverb better than AAPNA Infotech, a company that highly values team building and engagement. AAPNA created and promoted several virtual team-building and engagement games. Those unique virtual games and platforms boosted the productivity and profitability of enterprises in every shape and size, particularly during CoVID days when companies worldwide don’t have any other option than to let their employees work remotely. It is noteworthy that AAPNA’s business model is worth emulating.
