What do we do?

 

Team Projects

It’s time to get out of the office and into the community!

Team Projects are a perfect opportunity to create an impact in the community, whilst bringing together employees from all levels to develop and learn new skills. They provide the chance for employees to try something new and explore beyond their comfort zones and can increase motivation and morale within the workforce.

Sessions can be arranged as full or half day sessions, to best suit your business agenda.

Previous team challenges have included:

  • EE and Department for Education supported sessions at King's Food Store
  • Cummins Engineering helped decorate Whessoe Community Hall and Firthmoor Community Centre
  • EE, Darlington Building Society, Cummins, Department for Education. Sherwoods, Northumbrian Water, Nandos and Darlington Borough Council all supported the environmental project 'Pick, Pie and a Pint'
