At their mid-year sales meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, UPS Capital Corp employees showed overwhelming enthusiasm that made up for their smaller size during their Build-A-Bike ® team building event. The sales meeting was held at the spectacular Stein Erickson Lodge in Park City near Salt Lake City, Utah. The participants in the Build-A-Bike event were part of the Women’s Leadership Development group within UPS Capital Corp. The twenty-five employees were from various locations within the United States. Some knew each other and others had never met before. While their group was small, their enthusiasm more than made up for their numbers.
The Build-A-Bike event fits in perfectly with the Women’s Leadership Development group’s goal of promoting leadership skills. It was also a great opportunity for employees to bond and grow more comfortable with each other as a team. Because of the smaller than normal size of the group, employees of UPS Capital Corp were tasked with creatively using their resources to efficiently solve the challenges of the event. The Build-A-Bike event is filled with practical lessons that employees can draw from and overcoming the challenges of having a smaller group was just one of those lessons. The events tasks help to build teamwork and leadership skills and encourages employees to think outside the box to find new solutions to familiar problems.
Not only did the employees of UPS Capital Corp learn valuable lessons about working as a team but they also learned the value and pride of giving back to the community. The teams built four new bicycles which were donated to the Boys and Girls Club of South Valley. All the employees were delighted to see the children as they were presented with their new bikes. Between the beautiful view from the deck, the fun and excitement of the Build-A-Bike event and the joy of the kids and their new bikes; the employees of UPS Capital Corp hosted an amazing event. A big thank you to the employees of UPS Capital Corp for participating, learning and giving back.
