On 3rd April 2021, Universal Horizon Sdn Bhd conduct a team building program that takes place in Anani Villa, Tanah rimba, Janda Baik, Pahang for two days. This program is about understanding, appreciating, developing and maximising the people in your team, and also the team as a unified group.
The main goals of team-building are to improve productivity and motivation. Taking employees out of the office helps groups break down personal barriers, eliminate distractions, and have fun. Activities in these programs are designed to motivate employees pool their talents and perform at their best individually, as team players and as a team leader. Employees discover that diversity is their greatest asset and trust, cooperation and effective communication are the key to a team’s success.
The activities start with an ice breaker and divided the staff into two groups which to help members of a group begin the process of forming themselves into a team. Icebreakers are commonly presented as a game to “warm up” the group by helping the members to get to know each other. Next activity is Explorace X Obstacle which to build teamwork through problem solving. The idea is that the combined knowledge and team spirit of the team will result in more efficient problem solving.
Day one ends with Bohemian Dinner Party theme. Each group need to prepare special performance on that night and play a game prepared by Activities Committee. The night goes on with appreciation night and prize giving ceremony. This dinner is held in appreciation of all the hard work and dedication of the staff in helping to achieve UHSB business objectives. It was truly unforgettable dinner as everyone enjoy every moment of the night.
On the next day, everyone starts their day with solat subuh together. Jungle trekking was the last activity for UHSB Team Building which equipped with natural and some unforeseen situations to inspire team efforts for success. Jungle trekking is the greatest way to get close to nature. It is a way for the staff to experience the real beauty of nature.
In conclusion, it is important to note that every organization needs effective team building processes in place to make sure that the teams and team members work towards the goals assigned, thus helping the organization reach greater heights.
