MSV Life employees headed down to Limestone Heritage for two days of fun filled activities aimed at increasing team cohesion, on the 27th and 28th June.
The MSV HR Team organised, planned and facilitated this event with the activity organization entrusted in the able hands of JUGS Malta, local teambuilding and event organizers.
The day kicked off with an opening speech and a brief introduction. The attendees were then divided into teams and competed over a number of JUGS’ most requested team-building games such as Spider`s Web, Blindfold Maze and Crash Test Dummy. “The atmosphere was upbeat from the start. These games are designed to build a buzz and create an atmosphere where people automatically pull together as teams.” said Josef Gafa, Director at Jugs Malta.
After a late morning evaluation session, teams were faced with another challenge – they had to seek out their lunch destination. With maps in hand, the teams soon realised that they had to get together and combine their maps in order to identify the location. On arrival at Tal-Fokli, a local winery and eatery, the teams were met by owners Joe and Mary Rose who had prepared a lavish spread of delectable, traditional, culinary treats as well as yet another challenge – a competitive pizza making competition!
In the afternoon, back at Limestone Heritage gardens, the teams were given the necessary props to “Build a Traditional Maltese Bus”. The activity involved not only constructing a bus, but the entire team had to board their vehicle and compete in a race to win the challenge cheered on by the rest of their team members.
The day came to a close with an evaluation session during which lessons learnt were highlighted and discussed.
“It was indeed a day during which employees hailing from different departments teamed up, communicated, competed, synergized ideas, learnt and above all had fun together as a cohesive and integrated group. Thanks to the entire HR team as well as JUGS for helping us achieve all of this. Everybody is still feeding off the buzz generated from these activities and motivation is soaring!” said Norman Mifsud, Senior Manager, HR & Administration of MSV Life p.l.c..
