The environment and global warming have become much-publicized topics over the last several years. Although predictions about global warming and the condition of the environment are not looking bright for the future, there are many reasons to be optimistic. With a little help from each of us, we can change this predicament. That’s why we created Go Green Racing!
This week’s featured program fits into the go green theme for April – AKA Earth Month.
With Go Green Racing, teams will be tasked with creating solar cars from kits provided and building cars from materials used and thrown away everyday by millions of Americans. The solar cars will be put to the test and judged for performance, while the recycled cars will be built for speed! The event concludes with a round robin drag race tournament to determine which car is the fastest. Teams will race against the clock to complete both cars and take home the checkered flag.
The goal of the event is to make a worthy donation to a local school. Although there will be a ’winner’ of the Team Building activity based on performance during the 2-hour program, the real winners are unveiled at the end of the activity when the group finds out that the solar cars, along with brand new solar car kits and a solar classroom curriculum will be donated to a local school. These cars and new car kits will be used by the school to further emphasize the importance of energy conservation and alternative methods of transportation, as well as foster creativity and innovation within the classroom.
How will your company go green this April?
What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here! When you don’t have anything new, inspiring, or challenging happening in the workplace, you may find you and your employees in a work rut. Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
