Highlights included shows of teamwork as teams took on a Pit-stop challenge, changing the wheels of a full size replica F1 racing car. A construction challenge saw employees use their ingenuity to assemble a version of Leonardo Da Vinci’s self-supporting bridge and teams tested their communication skills as they battled against the clock to decipher series of puzzles.
The workshops were run in conjunction with The Success Factory; a leadership development and enhancement company based in Chester and hosted at The Reader Organisation; Prinovis UK’s charity of choice.
June’s finale saw the winning team of employees spend a day at The Success Factory’s headquarters performing fun team activities, which included navigating a rope course and scaling a 10 metre high-beam, all followed by a well-deserved meal.
Lindsey Halewood, Pressroom Team Leader, who was part of the winning team, said “The day couldn’t have gone any better, everyone in the team worked really well together and we were able to achieve so much. I have a fear of heights, but with the support and encouragement of the team I managed to complete every challenge; including the high beam and the leap of faith. The ‘Changing Gear’ initiative has been a fantastic experience”.
Vicci Tatton, HR Director, who sponsored the project, said “In developing our plans for Changing Gear I wanted the focus to be “The Prinovis Team” and how if we continue to work together making small ongoing improvements to our business and processes we will remain a key and strong player in the Gravure Print market.”
“Throughout the ten days we saw lots of fantastic examples of sharing ideas, building on successes and embodying continual improvement processes, together with a little element of competition”.
“We are committed to the future prosperity of Prinovis UK, through continuous improvement and innovations, optimising development opportunities and long term employment for all our employees.”
