On a wet Oldham December day, so like most days in Oldham the Pilgrim International Limited Team took a full and fun packed day away from the daily business of Controlled Fastening Systems to participate in a team building event. At a local offsite location and with the help of Donna and Jeremy of Anubis Developments the day started with some “getting to know you better” exercises, which although simple emphasized how little you can know about the likes and dislikes of long standing colleagues. After Lunch the team also really got to investigate more about themselves and how having a mix of extraverts and introverts makes for a really strong team, as long as everybody gets a chance to input! Damian Lewis, General Manager stated “As part of the ongoing change program at Pilgrim Sara Longley (HR Business Support) mapped the need for a team event and although the day was a heavy investment in time and money the output has been fantastic. The day has been a huge success because the team invested a lot of energy and the contribution levels were first class. There was a lot of really positive feedback from all attendees about the day and my personal take home from the event was the team is actually already very strong and that by celebrating and acknowledging peoples different approaches can only add to the strength of the team. I am confident that the team will embrace this learning when they get back to the daily work”.
