Team build­ing event for the em­ploy­ees of GasanMamo In­sur­ance

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

Team work and team build­ing are cru­cial 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. GasanMamo In­sur­ance firmly be­lieves that team build­ing con­trib­utes to­wards staff mem­bers be­ing more mo­ti­vated, con­fi­dent and trust­wor­thy, re­sult­ing in an in­crease in pro­duc­tiv­ity and ef­fi­ciency.

In this re­gard, the so­cial ac­tiv­ity group of GasanMamo In­sur­ance re­cently or­gan­ised a laser tag event; this out­door game has no phys­i­cal con­tact be­tween play­ers and the equip­ment used for this game are laser guns and targets worn by the re­spec­tive play­ers. Around 45 staff mem­bers from GasanMamo par­tic­i­pated in this out­door event, re­sult­ing in a fun day away from the of­fice in a play­ful en­vi­ron­ment. No doubt this event was a good ex­am­ple of team build­ing with the aim of im­prov­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween em­ploy­ees. Com­ment­ing fol­low­ing this event, Vanessa Portelli, Gen­eral Man­ager at GasanMamo said “This type of game cov­ers four cru­cial team build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties be­ing: prob­lem solv­ing, op­er­a­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion, adapt­abil­ity and team trust hence laser tag im­proves pro­duc­tiv­ity by recog­nis­ing the strengths and weak­nesses of team mem­bers. I be­lieve that through such events, we get to know each other bet­ter and im­prove the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment.”

Ob­vi­ously, the tech­nol­ogy im­plied in this game helped to pro­vide a safe and ex­cit­ing team build­ing en­vi­ron­ment without any pain and since this was not paint­ball, one wasn’t wor­ried about in­juries of fast fly­ing paint­balls.

“At GasanMamo we be­lieve that em­ploy­ees are part of the as­sets of our or­ga­ni­za­tion and the com­pany’s suc­cess is di­rectly pro­por­tional to the hard work ev­ery em­ployee puts in. When or­gan­is­ing th­ese events, we’ve no­ticed how team build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties bring em­ploy­ees closer and one feels happy to go to work daily, ap­pre­ci­at­ing their work and feel fresh the en­tire day,” said Ju­lian Mamo, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor.
