Corporate Professionals Experience Team-building
Rainforest Adventures (RFA) is Saint Lucia’s leading eco-tour location, welcoming 40,000 visitors every year from cruise ships, hotels and the local community to experience its unique aerial tram, hiking trails, bird-watching and zip-line courses in the natural beauty of the rainforest at Chassin, Babonneau. Recently, the RFA team welcomed some of the island’s senior management and human resource professionals to an afternoon of activities designed to showcase the park’s eco-tours and new team-building programmes for organisations and corporations.
HR management studies have revealed that outdoor activities allow teams to discover and practise group skills like planning, problemsolving, decision-making and conflict resolution. But this works even better on a fun day out of the office, relaxing and getting to know each other better.
Marketing and Sales Manager Donna ComptonCharles described the November 17 invitational event as a great success: “Feedback from the professionals was very encouraging. The park at Chassin is located in a serene, rural environment but we’re only a short drive from Castries and Rodney Bay which makes Rainforest Adventures extremely convenient for corporate HR activities. Our eco-tours are suitable for all ages, fitness and confidence levels, so are perfect for team-building, morale-boosting and employee wellness activities. RFA can customise all sorts of corporate HR outdoor events, including refreshments, photos and certificates.”
Organisations attending the invitational event were Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, The Landings Resort and Spa, Renwick & Company, University of the West Indies (UWI), J E Bergasse, and Community, Family and Youth Resilience Programme (CFYR). Feedback from the professionals was very positive and the RFA team plans to develop several team-building programmes. General Manager, Daryl Raymond encouraged Saint Lucia’s HR practitioners to contact RFA about incorporating outdoor activities into their annual plans, saying “Health, wellness and team-building exercises are a new and important focus for human resource departments and we invite them to experience our tours and other product offerings at Chassin, Babonneau which is a beautiful, tranquil place to spend time. The benefits are proven and RFA is excited about partnering with companies to help improve the health and motivation of their employees.” To book your Rainforest Adventure, call 458 5151 or email reserva[email protected] rainforestadventure.com.
