Yorkshire Wildlife Trust – Team Building

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Corporate Team Building Days are a great way to engage and develop a team, whilst also doing something great for your local community.

For most, its just a good excuse to get out of the office and for some larger companies some staff may see it as an opportunity to skive, but either way, for the admin team at far’n’beyond its been great to spend time with each other outside the office and do something for the environment and our community.

As cheesy and as corporate as it sounds, as my business changes, flexible working increases and the pressures of day to day business overtake our intentions to take time out, it is more important than ever to keep the team engaged and connected with each other on a personal level.

Team building days, instantly conjure expectations of us all having to catch each other as we nervously fall into the hands of our ‘support team’ or building a tall tower out of toilet rolls and tissue paper. Personally, these have never been for me, but the value of doing things together outside of the pressures and distractions of day to day work and the stereotypes of our job roles are invaluable.

The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust offer a range of activity days, which have allowed us to do something different each year and with a clear objective and structure. Working together the team have not only re-connected, enjoyed kindly mocking each other, but spent time chatting and bonding over the task in hand.

What does make a difference is the approach. We are not doing it for ourselves, the team are helping improve the natural habitat of our local environment. All the other bits are a bonus. Because we are united in a cause and the hard word has a value, it feels like a legitimate contribution we are all making, and justifiable to be out of the studio for a day.

By creating an event which is clearly not a jolly, or a pointless exercise, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust team days have become an important annual activity for the team at far’n’beyond.

However, it doesn’t half ache for a few days after! 🙂
