The community challenges deliver an effective ‘values based’ learning and development programme which aligns human resource objectives with corporate social responsibility strategy. The rural communities where community challenge participants work, provide an incredibly stimulating, real and memorable learning environment, in contrast to the office environment of traditional HR courses.
The team challenges bond clients, customers, partners, and suppliers like no other experience. Strong relationships are formed between team participants due to the shared emotional experience and common goal that is achieved. The memories of working alongside the local community and the team stays with participants forever. The challenges improve personal relationships by breaking down barriers, improving trust, respect and flexibility between people. Participants talk of "being more alive again" of "feeling more motivated" and of "having respect for their employer." Your company’s involvement in the programme makes it attractive to people, both in terms of recruitment, retention and investment.
Participants return not only knowing that they have provided much needed help to a local community but also return with new skills that will be relevant to their place of work and a deeper understanding of how important every individual is in an organisation.
