Another Spectrum Health Build-A-Bike in Grand Rapids, Michigan

charity bike team building near Detroit Michigan

Spectrum Health again included a Build-A-Bike ® team building workshop in the kick-off Spectrum Health University in Grand Rapids, MI. Last month, 90 new managers from around the company gathered to start a year-long leadership development program. This was the second in a series of leadership development workshops they will host throughout the yeat. The team activity in Grand Rapids was the highlight of this meeting!

Spectrum Health is a not-for-profit system of care dedicated to improving the health of families and individuals. With corporate offices located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a footprint that covers the entire state, Spectrum Health provides high quality, high-value care to millions of individuals. The organization includes a medical center, regional community hospitals, a dedicated children’s hospital, a multispecialty medical group, affiliated physicians, and a nationally recognized health plan, Priority Health.

This high-energy, fun workshop gives participants the opportunity to interact, compete, and ultimately work together to solve a series of challenges. The group was a little bit on the reserved side at the beginning, but they quickly got warmed up and engaged in the activities. The energy and enthusiasm in the room were exciting as people figured out the challenges and rose to meet them.

The End of the Bike Team Activity Is the Best Part!

By the end of the event, the group had successfully built 14 bikes while reinforcing the important lessons of teamwork, collaboration, giving back to the community, and “Connect to Purpose” – all things that the team organizing the workshop were hoping to emphasize! The bikes were donated to two organizations that Spectrum Health works with, and very deserving young kids will have new bikes. When the kids came into the room to receive the bikes, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. It was an incredibly moving moment!

“Another fantastic event! Your energy is contagious!” –Onilee Hansen-Mills, Spectrum Health

Build-A-Bike ® is not your ‘typical’ team building event! If your group is looking for a workshop that can reinforce the lessons related to working together more effectively while giving back to your local community, consider including Build-A-Bike ® in your next conference.
