We all recently took a day out to do some fun things together for a Wyser celebration event.
Who’d have thought a bunch of adults would enjoy crazy golf anywhere near the level we did? Plus, we found some hidden skills/talents amongst the team, rounders and pool to name a few.
I learned a new skill when Neil Moffat taught me to play Mancala, supposedly the oldest game in the world, I’d never heard of it but it was great fun.
And we met people in person for the first time, who we’d only ever met over video before.
The point is, an event like this is good for the cohesion of the team, we talked about things that would've never come up in a normal working day and learned things about each other.
I’m sure, if you could put a value on these kind of things, the benefits would far outweigh the money/time investment.
We each made new friendships and strengthened our communication.
Our collaboration was polished, I wasn’t losing at rounders.
All our commitment to the company and its culture skyrocketed and morale was sky-high.
We felt important and appreciated; who doesn’t want to feel that way at work?
We definitely ended the day with some lovely memories and are confident that, when the time is right, we will do it again. I, for one, cannot wait to spend time with my fabulous colleagues again, although I may need to get some more practice in on the pool table.
