Amcor’s top leaders came together recently for an important meeting together to build stronger relationships, learn to work cooperatively across business units, and grow together into the future.
The group enjoyed a peaceful meeting space and wonderful food in a beautifully restored barn and farmhouse at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms in Dexter, just outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The group that gathered included top leadership from several sites that have a growing need to work together effectively.
Bike-A-Thon is a fun, high energy, philanthropic team building event designed to challenge teams to overcome common workplace barriers through a series of engaging activities. As participants navigated problem solving together at this event, they developed creative solutions, laughing and having a great time in the process!
One of the group’s goals was to deepen their relationships and get to know each other better during this event. Several of the activities provided fun, easy ways for them to do just that. Some of the most important lessons with workplace translation come from activities where the members of the team are relaxed, having fun, and laughing together. Natural human behavior provides great material for our expert facilitators to draw from and make connections to everyday workplace challenges! As the bikes were assembled, teams collaborated to help one another finish successfully.
When every bike had been safety checked, the group announced their intention to display the eight bikes at two of their plants for the next few weeks before donating them to charity partners in each location. The leadership’s intention with this process is to create buzz at these plants when employees see the bikes on display. Magnovo was very happy to partner with Amcor and help them in reaching their goals.
