Alacrity Services wanted to host a memorable event that would help them improve teamwork within the company so they decided to participate in the Build-A-Bike® team building event. Alacrity  is a high performance insurance services company that manages an extensive contractor network and claims management systems.  Many of the third party insurance company’s employees work from their homes so many had never met face to face before the event.  The main goals for Alacrity Services were to improve leadership skills and teamwork while having a fun and memorable event.  The Build-A-Bike® team building event helped the Alacrity employees see first hand how their team or department is connected to and affects the entire company despite the distance that separates them.

Even though many of the participants had never participated in anything like the Build-A-Bike® team building event they were very enthusiastic and eager to dive into the challenges of the program.  The participants were broken down into teams and this ignited their competitive spirit.  Eager to complete the tasks at hand and be the first to “win” they failed to see how going beyond their small teams would be the most effective use of their efforts.  Like their name suggests, it did not take them long to work together and build their bikes in record time.

The employees had to work on their teamwork and leadership skills to receive all the materials they needed to build their bicycles. Alacrity Services wound up building 8 bikes that were donated to lucky children from the Boys and Girls Club of Portland. The charitable nature of the Build-A-Bike ® team building event goes to reinforce one of the programs main ideas that all parts of a group can dramatically affect the outcome. Whether that means departments working together to accomplish company goals or people helping others’ within their community so everyone has the same opportunities.

At the close of the event after the children had arrived to receive their bikes, a participant was asked to comment on the team building event.  He was unable to do so because he was so moved by the children’s gratitude.  Thank you Alacrity Services for creating a truly memorable event!
