Team ‘Speed Dating’ is a regular activity taking place once a quarter. Each team member gets involved and is randomly given a number and matched with someone they would not usually work with day to day. The company then takes a team of 5 ‘couple’s and then each couple are given topics to discuss. Sharing insights about their; favourite places to visit in the world, aspirations, big idea, big dream and one fact that no one would know about them. Friday 4.30 Fun: On Fridays the company officially close the office an hour earlier to have some team fun. It's not about leaving early on a Friday but rather about team building. Each week one department is responsible for ensuring the whole team get together to interact, engage and get to know one another. The fun activity can be anything, as long as it brings teams together. Activities covered show the range of fun: The Egg Challenge, Salt & Pepper, where people have to blindly find their perfect pairing to find their team, Silly ‘It’s a Knockout’ type office activities, a quiz and softball in the park. The company buys beers / wine / nibbles for these events. Tuesday Team Lunch: Each Tuesday one department is responsible for organising lunch for the whole team.
