As part of it’s conference in Newport, California, just south of Los Angeles, BP included a Build-A-Bike team building event to add energy and fun with a philanthropic component. 120 BP employees from around the globe came together to strategize for the upcoming year, get to know their colleagues and give back to the community.  Through this charitable team building program, all this and more were accomplished in one afternoon!

Build-A-Bike is a fast-paced, high-energy workshop giving participants the opportunity to interact, compete and ultimately work together to solve a series of challenges. Due to our competitive human nature, there is typically some skepticism at the notion that the teams need to collaborate to solve the challenges more efficiently. But in the end, this group learned some new ways to create a team and had a lot of fun in the process!

By the end of the event, they had built 18 bikes for local kids from the Boys and Girls Club of East Bluffs in Newport. The children were elated and the adults were thrilled at what they had accomplished.  It was a beautiful day not just because of the bright blue skies, but in the good feelings that were felt by those who received, and also by those who gave.

BP came together to plan their upcoming year, give back to the community and find their common voice as a team.  “Whatever the strength of the individual, we will accomplish more together. We put the team ahead of our personal success and commit to building its capability.”

Giving back to the community, especially to kids in need, adds a whole other element to your team building activity. Including Build-A-Bike in your next conference gives your employees the opportunity to do just that while adding energy, enthusiasm and fun!
