Afternoon Event – Bath Spa
Looking for a team activity that encourages colleagues who don’t work together normally to interact and come together.
Afternoon: It’s A Knockout
What better way to spend a gorgeous sunny June Afternoon than with more inflatables than a pool party. Well, that is exactly what the awesome folk over at Yolk Recruitment did. They decide to pit 6 brave teams against the ultimate test of speed, skill, stamina and ability to run while dressed in a giant character suit – It’s A Knockout!
We caught up with James Cheetham, Marketing Manager at Yolk Recruitment to answer our 60-second review on the event and tell us a bit more about the highlights of the day.
Why did you Consider Team building or Team development in the first place?
As part of our AGM, we always make sure to include a team building activity in the day to break things up and get people involved. We have a number of different divisions and solo desks, so it’s a great opportunity to bring everyone together, and mix up different people across activity groups.
Why did you choose this event in particular?
As a recruitment agency, our sales team are a competitive bunch. This type of event gave us the chance to get the team fired up and competing and blow off some steam. We also have quite a young team, so the games included in It’s A Knockout suited our employees really well.
What is the 1 key element you’ve taken away from the experience?
Inflatables are harder to scale than you think! Especially when covered in foam…We didn’t think it would be easy, but we didn’t realise some of the games would be as challenging as they were which was great fun as it felt like a real achievement when your team came out on top on the different rounds.
How did the team respond to the event? Any comments from them?
Everyone loved it. A lot of people commented on what a terrific experience it was, and how well it was run and to time (exactly within the two-hour time slot we had.)
What was the highlight of the event for you?
I loved the final challenge of the slippery slope. It was a really fun culmination of all the different games that got everyone involved, messy and laughing. And it was also quite hard!
