The first ever Team Building Activity of PHILWEBSERVICES, INC. with its theme “Trust, Communication and Teamwork” happened last Saturday, May 23, 2009. It took place at the rooftop of the company’s building. All employees were gathered that night and delightful food were prepared. Different activities were provided as well by the Human Resource (HR) department. Activities such as, the Trust Walk, the Minefield and the Blind Polygon. These activities are align on the said theme.
Blind Polygon is one activity in which all members of the team are blind-folded. A facilitator then will ask the team to form different shapes like circle, triangle and square with the use of a rope. This activity helps in developing a better communication with the team. The other two activities are both related in building Trust with each member of the team. After the activities, there was an evalutation where all participants shared their insights and thoughts with regards to the given activities. The whole team did participate in the activities and had so much fun.
The experience was entertaining and at the same time informative. Each participant had the chance to speak up. And they were able to stretch out key points for both strengths and weaknesses as well as suggestions on how to improve those. In a way, it developed openness to the team and working together becomes more easier.
