Team Building For A Good Cause

July 20, 2011

With the number of disgraced companies rising every month – starting with Enron, then BP last year and now News International – the Corporate Social Responsibility agenda shows little sign of diminishing.  Added to this is the fact that increasing numbers of employees are saying that they are keen to ‘give something back’ and ‘make a difference’ through their work.

In response to increased requests for team building activities that generate some community benefit, Fresh Tracks have created The Toy Factory

In response to increased requests for team building activities that generate some community benefit, Fresh Tracks have created  The Toy Factory. This is a half day event that can be run in any  meeting room  and  yet results in beautifully crafted, hand made, wooden toys.  Our connections with children’s hospitals and charities mean that the resulting toys from the exercise can be donated to children or sold, with money raised going to the host company’s  chosen good cause.

The Toy Factory is similar to a real production line with teams having to first cut out components from a wooden sheet then sand off rough edges before gluing, painting and assembling their toys.  Success is determined by quality not quantity so the teams must select roles carefully and devise a manufacturing process that is both efficient and effectively produces finished toys good enough to give as gifts.

In addition to being a fun and worthwhile event the Toy Factory is an ideal activity from which to generate discussion on management processes such as Six Sigma and Cell Working. To understand how this could help your organisation speak to one of our facilitators.
