Teambuilding and staff retention through rowing

Building strong teams requires more than flipcharts and pizza. Rowing takes teambuilding to new levels – it is a ‘hard’ skill, based on coordination, harmony and equilibrium. It is 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 – and that translates readily into business excellence.

This BPCC HR policy group event, aimed at HR directors and business partners as well as their teams, looks at how to improve engagement – and through these – decrease staff attrition rates. There will be a chance to try out rowing on the Vistula under the eye of an experienced rower.

Places (including the rowing experience) are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. It is also possible to register a team of 3 people to have a company boat.

Dress code – sports gear, changing facilities and showers available.
