Not all department meetings turn out this way, but for Johnson & Johnson, the best part of their 5 days of meetings was the workshop they’d scheduled with us.
That’s what the participants said after they’d completed their session- we’re happy to serve: it’s what we do! Our Bike-A-Thon™ charity team building workshop is a perennial favorite, and once again it proved its mettle with the group from Johnson & Johnson.
What exactly IS it about building bicycles that brings teams together too effectively?
We could explain how the power of doing good together helps form strong bonds between team members, or we could point out that the way we structure our charity workshops leads to improvement in teamwork skills.
But no matter how you look at it, building bicycles for local kids is simply a great way to spend an afternoon! There’s nothing like collaborative, hands-on activities to clear the cobwebs after long meetings or an intense day at a conference or convention.
This group from Johnson & Johnson had built bikes before.
Of course we’ll be the first to tell you: not all bicycle team builders are alike. We believe ours are so effective because of the way we put ours together. The objective is always to give back, but we incorporate some light team building into the event, and ensure that everyone has fun throughout.
That way, managers can count on ROI for their training dollars, and participants can count on a great day of giving back to the community.
It’s always great to see confirmation that our bicycle building workshop is doing its job, so we were pleased to find out that the participants from Johnson & Johnson thought pretty highly of their workshop with us.
They’d had bicycle building workshops before, but it was ours which prompted their contact with us to send thanks after the event was finished. Their Global Brand Protection rep called it “wonderful and rewarding”. That’s what we aim for every time!
Giving back supports the Johnson & Johnson credo.
Any company can get involved in giving back. Just call us and book a charity team building workshop…there are plenty to choose from, so you can find one that matches your company’s vision.
Turns out giving back to the local community is something that forms the bedrock of the J&J credo- we were happy to help align their vision with their actions!
