Teams and teamwork have become a central part of our work life and are vital in any working company to make the organization a better place to work. It goes a long way in cultivating professional relations, understanding and collaboration, and undeniably this is replicated in the quality of work being done. One of Malta’s leading Insurance companies, GasanMamo determinedly believes that team building contributes towards staff members being more inspired, self-assured and trustworthy, resulting in an increase in productivity and efficiency.
On Sunday 5th May, several employees from GasanMamo gathered at the Ta’ Qali Park to try two new sports, the Arrow Tag and Beer Goggle Football. This event was once more organised by the social activity group of GasanMamo and undoubtedly this successful event was another good example of team building with the aim of improving communication between employees.
Those who participated in the arrow tag, enjoyed the session to the full as every team member, throughout the course of this competition battled across arrow tag game variation. Moreover, everyone was impressed how safe and fun archery can be. Likewise, those who played Beer Goggle Football were overwhelmed by the new revolutionary and ridiculously funny game that brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘Beer Goggles’. For this game, the employees wore goggles that either make the ball seems x10 closer or x10 further away. At the end of the two enjoyable events, the employed ended the afternoon relishing the nature whilst having a picnic.
A company spokesperson said that GasanMamo believes that such initiatives were another way to facilitate bonding among team members, reduce stress, and give them the chance to get to know each other outside the office environment.
