And what if the future of team-building was a solidarity action? Today, you can create stronger bonds within your teams while effectively helping a non-profit association.
There are many ways of doing this. Working in the field to help volunteers, providing a team response to a problem encountered by nonprofits, for example in the areas of IT, accounting, communications, etc. Each team-building exercise provides an exceptional experience involving sharing ideas and meeting other people. It is also an excellent occasion to help with a real need by providing your services to others as part of a natural extension of our businesses.
How to create a solidarity team-building exercise
It is easy. Introduce the concept to your employees and then form a team of people wanting to participate. Define together what you want to achieve: the type of project you want to support, the time you have to devote to it, the skills that you combine, etc.
• a non-profit association to discuss and agree on an activity corresponding to their needs and your interests. Make sure you take the time to prepare the project with the association.
• an organization that pairs up companies and nonprofits based on their mutual needs. This organization will look after the structure, preparation and project management.
Good to know: you will be covered by the Group’s third-party insurance when you take part in a solidarity team building event.
