PayPal Build-A-Bike in San Jose, California

Build-A-Bike in Team Building A team of lawyers from PayPal/Ebay hosted a Build-A-Bike ® team building event in San Jose California to come together as a group and build teamwork skills. The team of thirty lawyers and paralegals gathered in the PayPal headquarters just outside of San Francisco. The team members come from Maryland, Omaha and San Jose. Half of the members of the legal team joined the company within the last year so encouraging a sense of team spirit was a high priority. The team spent three days in meetings to help get to know each other and open up lines of communication.

The Build-A-Bike event teaches teamwork skills through a series of challenges which the teams are to complete. The tasks encourage the teams to think outside the box to come up with solutions. While they are learning to work efficiently as a team the PayPal employees were also having fun and learning about their co-workers. Aside from just having a good time this helps employees to open up with each other so they can work better as a team. The overall lesson is that when everyone works together towards a common goal they can achieve it much faster than individuals competing to reach the same goal. In addition, it is not possible to start building your bike until everyone has their parts. This little twist forces the group to go beyond their teams to get the job done.

While the Build-A-Bike team building event helps employees to come together, it also lets them give back to their community. The PayPal employees built six brand new bicycles which were donated to the Boys and Girls Club of San Jose. Presenting the bikes to the children is always a fun part of the event. The employees were surprised to see how much of an impact they had on the kids. While six new bikes might not seem that significant to a team of lawyers, it goes to show how each person’s effort makes a difference and is appreciated. The PayPal team made some big strides in improving their teamwork and communication during the event and will have plenty of good memories to build solid relationships upon. Thank you to the legal team at PayPal/Ebay for hosting a spectacular Build-A-Bike ® team building event.
