Professionals in the technology industry play a crucial role in propelling our world forward. With that role stems a high amount of pressure to develop breakthrough solutions, meet deadlines, and ensure 100% functionality. And none of these things are possible without solid cooperation from your team.
The demanding job roles in the technology sector contribute to a unique, yet often stressful, work environment. With the increasing public dependence on new and improved technology functions, your only chance of meeting customer demands timely and effectively relies on your ability to function as a team.
Our Workshops Speak to the Technology Industry
Between product development and testing, sourcing quality electronics parts to build your solutions, and developing robust sales and marketing strategies to share your latest creations, technology professionals are in high demand in every aspect.
That’s why our leaders have crafted specialized team building events that cater specifically to the unique team-related intricacies that technology professionals are confronted with on a daily basis. We’ve partnered with dozens of technology companies in the past decade, helping them to develop teams that enhance their company’s initiatives. Through our experience, we’ve discovered that successful team building relies on three key points:
Communication, cooperation, and trust.
Technology is a specialized industry, and no single person could ever conquer all of the development challenges that surface in a single project alone. As your software becomes increasingly complex, additional challenges arise that must be addressed – and fast. In these instances, it’s immediately recognized that a strong team will take your company as far as you want it to go.
Team Building Workshops for Tech Space
Being in technology industry requires creativity and critical thinking, and our workshops are primed to provide plenty of both. Our workshop leaders have personal experience within the tech space and understand the team-related obstacles that can prevent you from achieving cohesion. We put that knowledge and experience into every workshop we host.
Each workshop is hosted offsite from your organization to relieve your staff of the daily stresses and demands they encounter in the workspace. This leaves them nothing to focus on but the activities and experiences that will begin to transform them into a stronger, confident, cooperative team. They’ll learn valuable communication skills and develop trust habits that’s too much fun to be considered “work.”
Charity Team Building Events
Similar to our team building events for the technology industry, we offer customized custom charity events that help you give back to others while giving your team a boost.
Our charity events begin with an icebreaker to involve every member of the team. From there, your team will actively participate in creating a charitable donation, such as assembling bicycles for underprivileged children to wrapping Christmas presents to sending care packages overseas. Your team will also enjoy delivering their charitable donation in a poignant conclusion that allows them to take pride in their teamwork.
Working for a greater cause helps build perspective for team members in showing how their individual contributions matter on a larger scale.
As a result of the Magnovo Bike-a-Thon™ charity event, event participants learned the value of finding creative solutions to reach their own goals while contributing to others.
Here are the ways a group from Apple Meeting and Event Services managed to hit all the high points of team building in just one short workshop.
Two ViaSat teams from two different cities joined for a training session whose benefits went far beyond success for the company.
Lush Cosmetics needed a highly customized program to address some critical workplace issues. At the same time, they wanted a workshop tailored to reinforcing company culture while allowing employees the chance to bond and have fun. A combination of corporate Team Fusion™ and Wagon Builders™ had them sitting pretty.
Blueprint Automation is about to celebrate its 30th year in business in the US, but they know giving back is something to celebrate any day of the year. That’s why when they came to us for some team building advice, we suggested a charity team building workshop.
Why give to just one charitable organization, when you can give to many? Medtronic, a repeat customer of ours, decided that this summer, one charity wasn’t enough!
Sometimes our customers choose workshops that seem custom-made for them. In the case of some FedEx engineers and equipment specialists, Wheelcharity™ definitely qualified!
When the makers of Gore-Tex wanted to give back, they chose Bike-A-Thon™. And what better place to celebrate the outdoors than a local park. It turned out to be the perfect spot for a summertime team building workshop!
The Bike-a-Thon we staged at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago, IL was a massive and ambitious venture. There were 290 college students from all over the country in attendance, each of them vying for a coveted internship with Crowe Howarth under the watchful eyes of the accounting giant’s management team. With our facilitators
Teamwork and great people skills are crucial to the success of any business, even if it doesn’t deal with the buying public directly. Whether the business is a restaurant, a factory, or a law firm, a team is always more productive than a group of individuals. Although they’re a software company, this is certainly true
