For organisations that want to go deeper than plastering mission statements on walls, the shared endeavor of an outdoor challenge drives tangible change. Suddenly, you’re able to measure employee engagement in real terms: miles travelled, pounds raised, pounds lost, sweat generated, tears shed and stronger working relationships.
Inspiring people to live bolder lives
Vodafone set aside one day every year when over a thousand employees unify behind a big ‘bold’ challenge. The event is designed to welcome all levels of fitness and physical ability. The result is an uplift in scores across loyalty, attitude to work, belief in what the organisation stands for. It also helps that the endeavor produces hundreds of thousands of pounds for selected charities.
Proof is in the pudding
Engaged employees are more productive at work. Fact. We’re not claiming that outdoor challenges are the silver bullet, but they should be part of a holistic approach to making your people feel valued, looked after and motivated to go the extra mile.
