What a day, what a team. Its been a busy few months, organising new offices, a new website and taking on You HR's latest shining stars, so we decided it was the right time to give the office a break and take it to the streets for a team day. Thankfully our recruitment is so people centric that we were a close knit team from day one, but it was exciting to see what skills lay unidentified when we got out of the office.
Action packed and high adrenaline at the Land Rover Experience centre for a day, deep in the heart of the Luton Hoo Estate. There were two teams, but one clear winner, Gemma Lavery, our Consultancy Practice Manager who really got the bit between her teeth and was the dark horse of the day. It was challenging in many ways, but so much fun and such a great opportunity to work together as a team in a different context.
With 80% growth in the last 2 months we wanted a day of team bonding, and I can't think of a better way to do it! The CIPD agree with us too, and team engagement should feature highly on the list of any business wanting to be the best they can:
Empowering, bonding and giving the message that your team are valued, team days are a regular feature for us, and they should be for your business too. We'll be back for more fun, though next time we'll aim for a rainy day...controlled skidding is a great way to spend an afternoon! Get in touch if we can help your team gel, it's worth every second!
