According to the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) Strategic Plan 2016 – 2021, teamwork is one value among others that form part of HRDC’s Organisational Culture.

Through teamwork, HRDC believes that its staff members will work together cohesively towards a common goal. In an effort to drive towards the aspired HRDC’s organisational culture of High Performance Organisation (HPO), the Wellness Committee has been alive to sound wellness activities in the workplace therefore remains one of the active committees within HRDC.

The Wellness Committee as part of their plan for the 2017/18 Financial Year organised a resoundingly successful team building activity. The event took place on the 15th September 2017, at Bon Fame Gardens under the theme, ‘#WE4ME’. Different activities were undertaken to stimulate team work among staff members, those including Orio Challenge, Hoola Hoops Pool Relay, Balloon Games, Tangled Rope and Mystery Games and other exciting activities. This team building exercise was crucial as it offered staff members the opportunity to become more familiar with each other and learn how to work together.

The importance of teamwork at work is vital to the success of the organisation and to the development of each employee. Understanding those important elements will go a long way in assisting HRDC to develop a well-rounded Wellness Strategy geared toward encouraging team growth in the workplace. The HRDC team building exercise was a colourful day illustrated by fun and laughter as showcased by staff enjoying working closely together in teams demonstrating willpower to work with each other in order to achieve the set goals. The Team Building Exercise culminated in the HRDC Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Raphael Dingalo encouraging staff to continue upholding the spirit and attitude of togetherness thereby becoming team players, a competency that will assist HRDC to diligently achieve its mandate.
