Here at Haute Pursuit, not only do we organise events for others, but sometimes we even organise events for ourselves. As the summer season was drawing to a close, we thought it was a good time to get the teams from our three divisions together; events, weddings and transfers. The purpose - to bring all our staff together to build the team, to better understand each other's roles and build our cross division communication in a very informal environment, (walking the mountains of the Chamonix valley). We polled staff on the general health of the businesses and brain stormed ideas for continuous improvement in the way in which the three company divisions operate.
During a very scenic hike up to the picturesque Chalet La Floria, which is easily accessible from the centre of Chamonix, staff were paired up and given specific topics to discuss with one another, focussing on their roles in the business and the general direction they saw Haute Pursuit, Haute Wedding and Haute Transfer taking in the short to medium term.
We employed the services of an independent facilitator for the day, made sure the day was enjoyable by taking staff into an outdoors environment and after a few hours of hiking we were all rewarded with an amazing barbeque lunch, drinks and an afternoon of relaxation in the sun. This also gave our staff the opporunity to experience the offering of local outside catering company, Savoie Faire, that operates a vintage food vehicle for weddings and events throughout the Chamonix valley.
If you want to get more out of your staff then a structured team building day is certainly a great way to gain valuable insight, build cross departmental communication and collaboration and most importantly to reward and thank your staff.
