About World Challenge


What is it like to work for World Challenge

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
We have an interative break out zone with amongst other things, a Nintendo Wii! Staff are encouraged to take a breather from their desks to use this area to clear their head and return to work with a clear and calm perspective.
My Team
My Team

They have an annual company conference, which not only gives the opportunity for employees to be updated regarding business performance and future strategy and developments, but also involves team building events, on a company wide scale. These are held in September of each year and this year, the employees worked in 4 teams (in line with our 'House system') and took part in 'it's a Knockout.' The budget has been utilised for their annual Christmas party, team based Christmas meals and a 12 days of Christmas campaign in the office, in which there is a different treat or competition for the 12 days of Christmas. There are also social events incorporated into the incentives for the sales team on an adhoc basis outside of this budget.
