Park Hill, a business unit within the Blackstone asset management company hosted a Build-A-Bike ® team building event at the historic Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn in Sonoma, California. Seventy employees from across the United States and London gathered at the beautiful inn outside of San Francisco. Park Hill wanted to host an event that would enhance their teamwork and leadership skills while also having fun and giving back to the community. The employees were skeptical and tough to win over at first but once the events began they quickly focused on the task at hand and started to have a lot of fun.

One of the companies core beliefs is “Work Global/Act Local” and Park Hill was able to act locally by donating the ten bikes they built during the event to the Boys and Girls Club of Sonoma. The employees were energetic and full of personality and included more than a few hecklers but all their sharp edges melted away when they got to present the bikes to the children. It was great to see the teams who were so ambitious and competitive also show how warm hearted they could be as well. While the events in the Build-A-Bike ® team building event are not designed to be competitive, when a group is split into smaller groups and given challenges competitive instincts can kick in. The event helped to teach Park Hill employees how best to use those instincts while still working as part of the team.

The employees at Park Hill definitely made this Build-A-Bike ® team building event something unique. They came hoping to improve teamwork and communications skills and give back to their local community while having fun doing it. Everyone certainly had fun working through the challenges of the event and ten children from the Boys and Girls Club of Sonoma have new bikes to show for it. Thanks to the employees at Park Hill for participating in an exciting and memorable Build-A-Bike ® team building event.
