Cadsourcing enjoys summer team building event
Cadsourcing spent the summer the right way as it dedicated a weekend last July for team building activities at Casay Beach in Cebu, Philippines. Not only were employees getting a much-deserved break from their usual work routine but they also had the chance to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the warmth of the summer sun by the beach.
It was quite a long ride as the travel time from the city office to the venue about 48 miles away took about two hours. But it was all worth it upon arrival as everybody enjoyed the good food, the different sets of team building games, the prizes and the memories made that will surely last a lifetime.
The games were mostly composed of different relay games which put the players’ teamwork to the test. The employees were divided into six teams and were assigned a color each: Yellow, Orange, Green, Pink, Blue and Red. At the end of the day, the Blue team finished fifth, Orange and Pink both finished fourth for a tie, Yellow finished third, Green took second place and the Red team was declared the team on top, finishing first.
Team building events are important in every organization because of the many benefits these can give. Getting to socialize and knowing one’s colleagues better can lead to an increase in productivity. Team bonding activities can help one to better understand his colleague’s strengths, weaknesses and interests, and may be vital to a company’s future progress. The celebration and team spirit that come with these activities can motivate employees to bring their job to the next level. As American captain of industry and a business magnate, the founder of the Ford Motor Company Henry Ford said, “ Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success. “
Last, improved communication, which is also one of the core values of Cadsourcing, is a major reason why team building is an essential piece to this company’s growth as it contributes to a more comfortable and successful working environment. Cadsourcing has its way of letting its employees enjoy moments like this.
As an employee put it, “We didn’t know we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun.”
