Symantec Hosts Build-A-Bike in San Jose, California

Symantec Build-A-Bike San Jose CaliforniaJust a week before everyone heads out for their holiday break, Symantec got together to host a Build-A-Bike ® Team Building Event at their headquarters near San Jose, California. Symantec is a high-tech company that works to safeguard your technological equipment. The group is called IMG, for Information Management Group, and the team is part of the Research and Development Department made up of mostly engineers. Everyone is from the greater San Jose area and some know each other well, others may not. The occasion was to have some fun, give everyone a much-needed break, come together as a group, and build some bikes for kids. On this crisp but bright day, all of the above goals were accomplished.

Symantec Builds Bicycles for 22 Kids in San Jose, CA.

The first priority was to have a good time but the participants cannot escape the team building insights that come along with this program. Their team is full of engineers who are generally very good at anything related to math and logical reasoning. Getting them out of their comfort zones was part of the fun and where they can rely on each other’s strengths to earn their bike parts. The teams are given a set of questions to solve. When everyone works together and brings their talents and knowledge then they answer the questions much quicker. They saw how better communication and working together as a team, rather than individual departments, helped them to achieve their goals.

By the end of the short 2-hour event, 22 bikes were built that were donated to the Boys and Girls Club of San Jose. The group was surprised by some of the kids from the club being able to come and accept the bikes- they were still in school so only a few could come. The rest of the bikes were accepted by Fred McCaslin and are to be delivered to the children at the center. A successful event was had as shown by all the smiles on the faces of the adults and children alike.
