Boehringer Ingelheim Builds Bikes in San Antonio
There were several activities including a flag and cheer competition, as well as the bike building. All the activities are designed to be fun, but also provide for the opportunity to put into practice leadership and team building skills. The highlight of the event is at the close when the grade school age boys and girls are introduced to receive the bikes. It is a great moment and makes the activities of the day all worthwhile.
At a time when the economy is struggling many companies are making the mistake of cutting back on their training budget. BI’s commitment to their people, their products and their customers shows in their desire to train their people and provide opportunities for them to learn, grow and have fun together; all the while contributing to the welfare of the communities in which they serve. Training is not a luxury that can be cut when the budget gets tight, but rather it is a necessary ingredient to the success and morale of any company. BI made that commitment and it shows in the team work of their people and, in this case, the people of San Antonio whose children benefited from the generous building and donation of 28 brand new bicycles
