Teambuilding and staff retention through rowing
Employers today face major problems in retaining their top talent. Employees are leaving jobs they consider to be without purpose, seeking instead employment that can develop them as human beings. Part of being an engaged employee is feeling that you’re part of a team; teambuilding therefore has become more important than ever.
Building strong teams takes more than flipcharts and pizza. Rowing takes teambuilding to new levels – it is a ‘hard’ skill based on coordination, harmony and equilibrium. It is also an inclusive sport, suitable for men and women of all ages and physical strength; finding the balance between team members of different aptitudes is the secret of success – which translates readily into business excellence. This BPCC HR policy group event, aimed at HR directors, business partners and C-level directors with an interest in team building, looks at how to improve engagement and teamwork, and enhance health – thus decreasing staff attrition rates.
There will be a chance to try out rowing on the Vistula under the tutelage of experienced rowers. If you wish to go on the water, please bring suitable clothes (eg tracksuit) – basic changing facilities on site.
Places (including the rowing experience) are limited; and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
