Do you remember that wagon photo from Wordless Wednesday?
37% of you thought the photo was from our GoTek Smartphone Scaventure. Perhaps we should look into that…
The image was actually taken during one of our custom team building programs.
You’ve heard of bike building, but have you heard of wagon building?! No? Neither had we, until we received this custom team building request from a client.
Why the wagons?
Hospital personnel use classic red wagons in place of wheelchairs or stretchers to transport children to and from surgeries, treatment rooms and playrooms. This offers fun diversion (sometimes even a little adventure!) during what can sometimes be a stressful time for children and families. They even get to take the wagons home!
These wagons are even more special! The materials for the Berlin brand wagons are made by Amish woodworkers in PA. They are handcrafted with the finest components to give long lasting enjoyment and use. Cool, right? Getting any ideas for customizing your next team building event?
Your needs are unique, your team is original and we never take a one size fits all approach at TeamBonding.
Do you have a specific conference, meeting or holiday party theme? Is there management book, ideal training model or a unique set of learning outcomes that have been serving your team well?
Whether you’re looking to run the largest scavenger hunt in the world (been there) or support a unique cause in your community (done that), we’ve got your back. No sweat!
Not sure what to expect? You focus on launching your next project. We deliver the rest. We’ve been designing custom team building events that forge real bonds since 1988, so we have the experience and talent to help you clarify your team building objectives and create a program specifically for your team.
What type of custom team building event would YOU create?!
Giving back to our communities makes you feel good, assists in making you more socially aware and helps you bond with your colleagues as you team up to help those in need. Charity is beneficial for both humanity and business for many reasons. When you participate in Corporate Social Responsibility team building activities, you get the best of both worlds.
Imagine if you will, that it’s 2006 again. The housing bubble has just burst, and the US economy is teetering on the brink of what will end up being the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. People are scared for the futures of their companies, and are cutting corners at every possible turn. No one is very eager to spend money on team building.
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 corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs!
Corporate Social Responsibility: Corporate Social Responsibility refers to the idea that a company or corporation has a moral obligation to give back to their community. Some companies are more aware than others when it comes to the importance of corporate social responsibility. One of the most notable is Haagen-Dazs, an ice cream company that prides themselves on using all-natural ingredients. What then makes for an effective CSR program?
Team building games and ice breaker activities for adults can keep your team bonded throughout the year. Get started with this simple DIY team building exercise. EXERCISE GOAL: Participants will gain a deeper understanding of themselves and those around them through ice breaker activities. (more…)
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective. You’ll get a behind the scenes view of what happens before the event and the preparation that goes into it. I’ll be posting blog posts about my observations and experience at each event. Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This time I went to a Team Teddy Rescue Bear.
