Technetics Group of Houston Texas Build-A-Bike

Technetics in Houston Build-A-Bike I had a blast, recently, leading a Build-A-Bike ® charity bike build for Technetics in Houston. Technetics Group provides an unmatched combination of engineering and manufacturing expertise to solve your most difficult design and performance problems, accelerating time to market and improving cost-of-ownership from Lab to Fab. We combine five decades of experience in producing the finest quality components and assemblies with leading-edge capabilities in chamber technology, advanced coatings, engineered surface treatments, and testing.

The Build-A-Bike ® event teaches teamwork skills through a series of fun challenges. These tasks encourage the teams to think outside the box to come up with creative solutions. While they practiced working efficiently as a team, the Technetics team was also having some fun.

Technetics Group in Houston Uses Competition to Build Teamwork.

Maricarmen, one of the group leaders, told me that the company was very competitive. The group has a tradition of competing for a traveling gnome during their company annual meetings. The winning team each year gets to keep the gnome at their location until the next meeting. (FYI, the gnome this year will live in Houston.)

During the team bike build, however, everyone worked together to reach the same goal — build the bikes for the kids. I mixed up the group so the Managers from Human Resources and plant the managers all worked together. Of course, at the start of the activity, the company’s natural competitiveness caused them to see the other teams as the enemy.

Before long, though, they realized that they actually needed the other teams to complete the tasks. They exhibited real teamwork. Some went from group to group assisting each other in solving the clues. The real theme of the activity became obvious.

The YMCA was the charity arranged to receive the bikes the group built. The age of the kids are six to eight years old and they were so excited to get their new bikes in addition the Technetics group also provided snacks and drinks for them as the kids received their first riding lesson in the parking lot. One of the participants, Mike from South Carolina, said “Thank you for a great day, this was amazing and so much fun to be apart of.”
