Merck Holds Build-A-Bike Near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Merck Bike Building Activity in Philadelphia PAThe Merck pharmaceutical company held a Build-A-Bike® Team Building Activity at their massive training center in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, which is a short drive Northwest of Philadelphia.  The Global Expert Management Services (GEMS) team decided to hold the quarterly department meetings and were inspired by other teams within Merck who had already experienced the Build-A-Bike® workshop by The Leader’s Institute®. 

Within their quarterly meetings, the GEMS team always tries to incorporate a team building exercise as a way to create positive interaction amongst the individuals within their team.  The group is spread out over a variety of offices within the Northeast and many folks don’t often get to talk to each other in the normal course of business.

Merck Builds and Donates 12 Bicycles to the Greater Newark Holiday Fund.

Merck is one of the leaders in the pharmaceutical industry and currently has many products that are commonly known on the market. After a long day of meetings and strategy sessions, the group of 75 people from the GEMS team made their way to the spacious George Merck room within their training center.  Many of the participants were ready to unwind and have a little fun as the day had been draining until that point.  The team was quickly broken into groups and was well on their way into the first few exercises within the workshop.  Soon after, the ever-popular Cheer Contest, the folks were able to forget about their exhaustion and intensely focus their energies on earning the bicycle parts through the clues that they were given.  Overall, the group had a blast in putting the bicycles together and primarily having to negotiate with other teams in order to have a complete set of bicycle parts.

All 12 bicycles that were built were graciously accepted by The Greater Newark Holiday Fund.   The organization distributed the bicycles to a few kids who were affected by Hurricane Sandy as well as underprivileged children within the Newark, NJ area.  The charity was very appreciative for the donation made by Merck.
