The 24th of August saw 72 employees, of pharmaceutical company Warner Chilcott of Larne, descend on the Sports Pavilion at Stormont Estate for a day long Team Building programme run by eye4education.
Having concerns about interdepartmental working/communication and having a number of new starts, the HR team at Warner Chilcott contacted eye4education to develop a team building day to better integrate the departments and to introduce the new starts to the rest of the team – through a fun and active day of events.
eye4education developed the "eye4energising the Team" programme for them. Upon arrival they were each assigned to a team (Mars, Twix, Snickers, Maltesers, Milky Way or Bounty) with whom they competed for the rest of the day against the other teams. The teams then proceeded through 4 different activities requiring strong team work and cohesion to perform successfully. An awards ceremony at the end announced a number of individual awards and the overall team award. Well done to team Twix!!!
Post event surveys have indicated that this was an extremely successful event. Some comments from the event:
“Thoroughly enjoyed the event and thought the eye4energising team were very good at organising the event and getting people involved. The activities were enjoyable and interesting but the team really made the day.”
“I found the day really enjoyable and because I'm just new to the company I found it a great way to meet other colleagues from different departments. I hope the company does this type of event on a yearly basis as I definitely believe it broke down barriers and helped team building within the company.”
And it has been confirmed that this will be an annual event!
