Alberta Group is as awesome as they are talented in keeping us safe, and that element of safety is extended from their products and services to their own team. They invest in their staff as much as they do their equipment, keeping teams entertained with biannual staff parties, weekly ‘każinata’ nights, health awareness days, and other social events.

One fine, warm, summer day, we got the team rolling in laughter and having heaps of fun while at the same time achieving some amazing goals.

The client’s brief: organise a team building event which gives employees a break from the office and the opportunity to let off some steam. What did they set out to achieve? Team cohesiveness, spur communication, getting to know people from different departments, improved team inclusion especially with the new foreign members of the team, making everyone feel involved and ultimately promoting individual commitment to a group effort, i.e. teamwork

What went down:

  • 250 employees came together at the gorgeous Golden Bay Beach;
  • 1 full outdoor day of teambuilding for Whacky Olympics: our team building event which is a cross between the classic Olympic games and your typical school sports day.

Participants were grouped into teams of 8-10 people. Each team participated in a series of games, including the three-legged egg race, the inheritance relay and the pram race together with water games, football and tug of war. There was something for everyone, irrespective of their age or ability!

We then ended the day with a chilled BBQ by the sea, a chance for them to unwind, get back into their ‘safe zone’ and laugh about the days’ events with colleagues, whilst enjoying some tasty food and a cold drink.

The result:

Once the over-enthusiastic team members’ sore muscles had been nursed, the laughter settled, and everyone was back at the office, we asked Alberta to list the outcome and impact this event had on their team:

  • Departments mixed and mingled and got to know each other better;
  • Employees became more familiar with colleagues on an informal level;
  • An improved appreciation of different cultures and different approaches;
  • The team’s confidence was boosted, and employees felt more acknowledged and appreciated.

“Jugs are very creative, organised, and have extremely good coordination. They have a charismatic team who are not only professional but also friendly and fun to work with. There were many team members on the day of the event and the JUGS team managed a group of more than 250 employees very well. The games were mixed, appealing to different characters and physical abilities – whether active or non-active, everyone could participate in their own way. It was a long day but the Jugs team was hyped throughout and kept everyone in an energetic mood. After the activities,we moved to a set-up on the beach with mats, cushions and low tables – the perfect ending to a long day! This was also set up by them and we were very happy with the outcome. We’ll definitely be working with JUGS again due to such a successful result and positive feedback from all our employees.” – Deborah Azzopardi | HR Executive, Alberta Group
