My Team
My Team
Within the HR and Consultancy Service Broadway had a divisional away day on 5 November. They have an extremely limited budget for this and wanted to have a good mix of formal and informal activities. Due to their tight budget, the team decided that they would use a room in one of Broadway's offices which they didn't have to pay for. Everyone agreed to bring a selection of snacks for the day and a number of staff brought home made food. The HR Director started the day by facilitating a session whereby the team had to list all achievements over the past six months. This was a very inspirational way to start the day. Following this they analysed the results of the HR customer satisfaction survey and as a team they created an action plan for improvement. One of Broadway's area managers also attended. For the rest of the day they discussed topical issues focused around improvement, including the recent staff survey and potential merger. The agenda for the whole day was designed around service improvement, with tangible outcomes which were shared with the rest of the organisation. Following this informal, but hard work, the whole team went for a drink and a meal, which was paid for from the slim away day budget.
