Elekta recently held a conference near Barcelona, Spain in Europe and included a Build-A-Bike team building workshop as a way to give back to the community and have some fun together! Elekta is a human care company pioneering significant innovations and clinical solutions for treating cancer and brain disorders. The company develops sophisticated state of the art tools and treatment planning systems for radiation therapy, radiosurgery and brachytherapy, as well as workflow enhancing software systems across the spectrum of cancer care. Elekta employs around 3,300 employees globally. About 80 of those global employees gathered for this conference in Barcelona.
The Build-A-Bike® team event is a great way for a group to have fun together, reinforce important team building lessons, and give back to the community. The event consists of a series of puzzles and activities that challenge the participants to think outside of their boxes. This group has not done a lot of team building events together, and they were highly challenged by the event’s activities. They also had a great time together!
Elekta is a global company and this meeting brought together people from all over the world. They don’t have an office in Barcelona but wanted to give back to the local community nonetheless, so they partnered with a local organization in town to facilitate the donation of the 12 bikes they built during the event.
“Ellen and Danielle facilitated a wonderful event for our group. Not only was our group impressed, but the hotel staff was so impressed that the hotel manager called a meeting with us to thank us for conducting the event! It was a very memorable experience for all of us.”
— Karen Wagener, Elekta
Team building events are plentiful, but few can compare to Build-A-Bike®. If you’re looking to give your team a unique experience that reinforces good communication and collaboration, as well as the importance of philanthropy, consider including it in your next conference.
