The people we work with are so important. In daily life, we spend more time with them than with anybody else, if you think about it. While most of our day is spent with them, it’s important to have a healthy working relationship with them. It’s great when they go from ‘work friends’ to ‘friends’. Seeing them only in the office all the time can get monotonous, which is why it’s important to see them outside the workspace as well. Whether you’re going for a corporate offsite or simply taking off with a few buddies from work, Mumbai has great options around. Check them out:
