Increase Productivity At Work Archives - Odyssey Teams, the team building and CSR leader

“Much to our delight, our participants had a terrific experience with the Helping Hands activity… and spent the remainder of the conference talking about it! The program that Odyssey Teams has developed is by far the most memorable, fulfilling, and moving “teambuilding” experience we have participated in”

“It is a great cause and a great program and the feedback that we received from the team far and away was that it was the best team building event they have ever participated in. Not to forget the perspective, collaboration, and business aspects that were driven home as well. I heard “life changing” on several occasions! It was the perfect way to start out our meeting and really set the tone for what we wanted to accomplish. We all walked away better for it and I’ve never seen so much enthusiasm from this group as they left a meeting like this getting ready to go back and make a difference in their jobs, and their lives!"

It was amazing to sit back and watch the light bulbs go on for our managers. I look forward to them taking the learnings back to the work place and applying them.”
