Many HR departments are looking for ways to incorporate corporate team building, corporate philanthropy, and social responsibility into their team building retreats. Today more than ever, the giving culture demands a selfless component of corporate life. It humanizes corporations and creates a powerful connection with your target market. Additionally, a corporate retreat geared toward giving back teaches your team the importance of participating in volunteerism and the giving culture no matter where they are.
At Grupo, we understand the importance of giving back. That’s why we’ve developed a series of corporate retreats specifically designed to show your team how giving to others can strengthen your team and enhance their team building activities during their stay in Cancun and on their return to their home city. One Project at a Time is one of the best retreats on our corporate social responsibilities roster.
How One Project at a Time Benefits Mexico’s Communities: We’ve partnered with Keeping Kids in School (KKIS) to create connections between corporate groups and disadvantaged local schools in Playa del Carmen. Through a combination of team building activities and give back initiatives, it provides school supplies, scholarships, and conversational English classes. Corporate teams work together to collect and distribute school supplies, refurbish and rebuild school furnishings – like chairs, desks, and shelves – and emphasize the importance of teamwork.
How Keeping Kids in School Benefits YOUR Local Communities: Seeing the smiles on the faces of schoolchildren and the hope you’ve brought to needy communities will inspire your team to keep giving back at home. In fact, teams can use a portion of their corporate retreat time to choose a specific neighbourhood, school or initiative to support in YOUR local community. Community schools will benefit from an infusion of needed supplies, helping hands, and support and encouragement. Your team will benefit from helping two communities provide better educational environments for their children.
The benefits of a corporate retreat that builds cohesive, effective teams are undeniable. A corporate retreat that enhances education, encourages a love of learning, and makes both possible in a clean, well-cared for, well-stocked schoolroom is unbeatable. Contact Grupo today to find out how your team can start giving back one project at a time!
