Team Building

GOC Wintel – Shared APJ

Team building is a process that develops cooperation and teamwork within a work unit.

A team needs to trust one another. It is important that camaraderie exists between them.

We had our team building last June 9, 2012. As part of our preparation for the said event, we make sure that all members of the team could come. We’ve asked other team to monitor our phone hotline in case we have calls and forward it to the duty engineer. We sort of agreed that once they have their team building we will also help monitoring their calls.

We choose to stay at Emerald Villa Pansol Laguna (Private Hot Spring Resort). We decided on what foods to cook, snacks and drinks to buy. And we all agreed on having our team t-shirt (HP Wintel Shared APJ).

The day has come, at 4:00 PM, we departed to Laguna, 3 of our team members brought their own cars (decided to whom to ride on). One of our teammate’s already setup in their house to monitor tickets while we headed to the resort.

At 7:30 PM we reached the resort, unload all foods, drinks and snacks and brought it inside the resort house. The assigned Duty Engineer start setting up to monitor calls so that the other team member can start their travel to the resort, he lives near the resort – 20 minutes travel time. Some started to cook (sisig, rice), grilled (BBQ, Pork Chop and Hotdog) and prepared the drinks. While cooking, we were all hungry so we ate bread with spread for the meantime.

AT 8:30 PM dinner is served. In our table, we have Caldereta, Diniguan, Pork Sisig, Grilled Pork Chop, BBQ, Grilled Hotdog, Igado, Rice, soft drinks, ice tea and leche plan for the dessert. What a feast!

After dinner, we start chatting up although it already began earlier. The so called singers started singing and reserving their songs for Videoke. There's also an ongoing Billiards tournament. Some continued grilling. And swimming has started. And of course, camera’s shutters starts flashing. We loved to have a jump shot photos. We enjoyed using the slides. Although, other still engaged on monitoring and accommodating service request to supports our clients, they still have moments to enjoy the day/night.

The whole night is all about happiness and enjoyment. The fun continues until morning, although some need to sleep earlier because they have a duty the next day.

At 4:30 AM, we prepared for breakfast (fried hotdog, scrambled egg, rice, pork sisig and coffee). While preparing our foods, we arranged things in place, put leftover foods in plastic container and some started taking showers and dressed up before going home or back to office for some of us.

This is the first time we gathered in one place as a team. We look tired but happy. After the breakfast we are all ready to go, leftover foods and drinks are divided to each team members.

Happy Team Building!
