JLL’s team training event just prior to the holidays might have Christmas a little better for families in Dallas, TX.
JLL’s Team Event is an Investment in the Dallas, TX Community
JLL is a commercial real estate and investment management company that excels at helping clients make smart financial decisions. But their recent charity team building activity showed them a new way they can invest to see a positive ROI. With Christmas less than two weeks away, leaders from JLL saw the perfect opportunity to infuse their teams with the spirit of giving while also helping to give their company a positive outlook for the upcoming year.
This large group of about 80 team members gathered at JLL headquarters in Dallas, TX for one final meeting before the holidays. Things like team collaboration and communication can often wane when the holidays are near, and this event gave them a fun, engaging way to keep their momentum flowing.
A few warmup games helped set an upbeat, positive mood for the event, but when the group learned they’d be donating food items to Brady Social Service Center – Catholic Charities, their tone shifted from relaxed to motivated, knowing they would be using their workplace skills to provide hope and happiness to others. That was all the incentive they needed to jump in with both feet.
Puttin’ Pantry is a Hole-in-One for All
Since they were donating to a food bank, the group chose the Puttin’ Pantry activity. This challenge divided the group into smaller teams that would work together to design and construct a mini-golf course using food items that would be donated to their selected organization.
While the team was excited to test each course, they recognized the real reward came from having a variety of food to offer the Brady Social Service Center – Catholic Charities. They knew that because of their team efforts, they were helping to make the holidays a little better for needy families and individuals.
The event was initially scheduled to last an hour, but luckily it was extended an extra 30 minutes, much to the team’s excitement. It was a quick event that had each person working fast and furiously to complete their challenge, and their friendly competitiveness only provided fuel for the fire.
