We can’t vouch for the way other companies do team building, but the Valiant Marketing Group approach is exciting! We engage in the occasional formal exercise, but mostly we have a great time hanging out doing something fun or even traveling together. Whenever we invest in the strength of our team, the payoff is extraordinary.
Cassie, Valiant Marketing Group’s Director of Operations, has chosen to create a two-month contest for the end of the year to keep morale high. She explained, saying, “During November and December we’ll be investing in our team by holding a competitive holiday raffle. Each branding specialist will receive tickets for multiple tasks when they complete them, or when we notice they are going the extra mile. Then, they enter the raffle with their tickets and could win many different prizes. There are Disneyland tickets, iPads, Fitbits, gift cards, and more. I totally enjoy giving back to my team that works so hard each and every day.”
Our team-oriented environment is a true competitive edge, and we work to keep our edge sharp. Individual team members are encouraged to achieve their individual goals, but these always support larger company objectives. When one of us succeeds, our whole organization benefits.
The next couple of months will be busy, but we know we’ll be a stronger team for it.
