Charitable Team Building with our Charity Bike Build

Receiving your first bicycle as a birthday gift or even a Christmas gift is powerful memory that many of us hold dear. However, many children around the country have yet to experience this due to financial hardships. Now more than ever, many families have had to prioritize health and nutrition, and purchasing a bike has become an unattainable luxury.

Bike Build

One of our favorite team building programs, Charity Bike Build helps to fill in this gap.  We work with different companies to provide bicycles to those children whose parents may not be able to buy them one.  After one and half years of being unable to host this event, we have plenty of bikes in stock and are ready to keep giving back!

 

What is Charity Bike Build?build-a-bike

Charity Bike Build was born from the idea and desire to help companies and teams give back to their communities. Over the past few years, we have hosted over 750 Charity Bike Build events, working with companies like Verizon and Nestle. During the team building event, coworkers work together completing tasks and solving puzzles with the end goal of building a children’s bicycle. Often times at the end of the event the children appear to receive their new bikes. For the majority of the children, it is their first-ever bike! Since the start of the program over 12 years ago, we have been helping companies and communities donate over 18,000 children’s bicycles. In 2019 alone we were able to build and donate 2,066 bikes!

 

The Power of Giving Back

Charity team building events are created to fulfill a need in the community, but they can also be a very powerful way to bring your teammates and coworkers together. In addition to the sense of group accomplishment from building something together, there is also the common bond and sense of fulfillment from having made a difference. Often times we hear that the most rewarding part of the experience is seeing the kid’s reaction and knowing that they did something good together. The program itself also encourages several important elements of teamwork including communication and problem-solving skills. It gives teammates the opportunity to listen to each other’s stories and build stronger connections with one another.

 

Charity team building helps build bonds, strengthen communication skills, and boosts morale while making a positive difference in the lives of people who need it the most. Our charitable team building programs including, Charity Bike Build, are the perfect option for companies who wish to give back while also increasing the bond between teammates.

The Ripple Effect of Disruptive Behavior in the Workplace

It’s a team meeting day, and some of your employees have shown up with disruptive behaviors in tow. Ed won’t let anyone get a word in edgewise. And a few employees at the end of the conference table are holding an obvious gossip session – as they point and laugh at Ed.
