After doing some research, Honeywell was attracted to FunEmpire's unique team building activities and decided to engage the company to organize a memorable and exciting event for Honeywell's 2016 Employee Engagement Day.
The main objective of the Employee Engagement event was to recognize and reward Honeywell’s staff members for their hard work, commitment and contribution to the company’s vision and success. We were tasked to develop a comprehensive programme of activities that will be suitable for Honeywell’s employees who had a diverse age range, the majority of whom also preferred less physical activities. The event served as a good opportunity to bring employees together to participate in exciting activities that will improve team work, communication as well as cultivate stronger workplace harmony across different departments.
After a detailed event consultation process with Honeywell’s event committee members (which involved multiple phone calls, email conversations, and face-to-face meetings), we were able to develop a comprehensive event programme and a list of activities that suited the participants’ profile and interests. The committee members were extremely satisfied with our proposed schedule of activities – Laser Tag, PoolBall, Combat Archery Tag, Saber Tag. We also recommended a relaxing fringe activity – assorted giant board games – for participants who preferred activities that required less physical exertion, especially for pregnant ladies and aged employees.
Regardless of the game type, team building was definitely enhanced through teamwork and collaboration. Participants also got to hone their strategic and planning skills through the diverse gameplay – the development of attack and defence strategies as a team required effective communication and team work to execute successfully.
Since this was a full-day event, our team suggested bringing in attractive snack booths such as traditional ice-cream, assorted kacang puteh, candy floss, unlimited supply of iced milo and energy drinks to enhance the carnival atmosphere of the event.
There was genuine excitement and buzz when participants started streaming into the event venue at Kovan Sports Centre. Although it started to rain right before the event kicked off, our team was well prepared and programme was not affected as our partner venue, Kovan Sports Centre, was a fully sheltered venue that had a covered gallery space and futsal courts equipped with floodlights. The carnival mood was strong despite the rain as participants were excited to begin the activities of the day and also to dig into the delectable buffet lunch arranged by our team. The buffet lunch provided a great time for all participants to mingle around and meet new friends prior to the start of the activity sessions.
The activities and game sessions went along smoothly as all participants enjoyed the different game modes available for each activity. It was great to see smiling faces leaving each of the different activity arenas of Laser Tag, Poolball, Combat Archery Tag and Saber Tag. It was heartening to see that participants were not only having fun but also bonding well as a team. That gave us a strong sense of satisfaction and achievement to see that the ultimate event objective of rewarding Honeywell’s staff and bringing them closer together was met.
It was a very enjoyable and fulfilling afternoon for all participants as they worked together in teams for every game segment, strategizing, and plotting their way to victory. Although some teams were trailing behind in points initially, their game performances improved along the way as they became more familiar with their teammates strengths and weaknesses.
The Honeywell organising committee was extremely satisfied with the services provided by us, Overall, the Honeywell team and their participants enjoyed themselves thoroughly at the event and took away key lessons of team building, cohesion and camaraderie. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to organize such a large-scale event for Honeywell, and the event’s success was a testament to our team’s dedication, drive and determination.
