Great causes unite teams

Great causes unite teams

300 Harvey Norman delegates just completed our Build a Bike for charity event.

The format: complete a fun challenge and win a bike part. Build your bike first to win.

The Catch: no one knew why they were building the bike – most thought they had to ride/race them.

The Reveal: as the first teams completed their bikes the charity was revealed – Berry Street Foundation (http://www.berrystreet.org.au focuses on children and young people).

Peoples emotions swelled. The world can be a challenging place.

The Result: 300 people pulling together as one to complete 50 bikes to shop standard by the tight deadline.

 

People ask, “Does helping a cause benefit our team?”

Short answer: YES.

It helps of many levels, some include:

  • people feel good helping the community and others
  • people inherently pull together quickly when there is a need beyond their own
  • this stronger bond is brought back to the work place post event
  • people learn new things about their colleagues in a positive light
  • people are exposed to a cause for the greater good (of which they might not in their day to day life) and as a result broadens and improves the individual
  • people are happy when helping others
  • people have to work together to achieve great things – a cause can bring down internal barriers and also help people shine
  • happy people in the workplace are great and have many flow on benefits
  • its is a great reflection on your brand and people

It is also awesome to help others.
