Creating a calendar a commitment to culture



A 12-month culture calendar is a great aid for workplaces to commit to working on their team culture, according to Danielle Lambert from Corporate Challenge Events.

“For many organisations, culture is acknowledged as important but there is no commitment to address team culture,” said Ms Lambert, a specialist in delivering team programs.

“Time can get in the way or there may always be another priority that pushes culture down the pecking order.”

A good way of overcoming this is to create a culture calendar, according to Ms Lambert.

“A culture calendar is a schedule of group activities, training and workshops for the whole year which provides enough advance notice for everyone to make time and commit to the activities,” she said.

“It also enables the organiser to set reminders along the journey and ensure there is a structure for what is being delivered for the betterment of your company culture.”

Ms Lambert highlighted that any group activities that provide professional outcomes and are focused on fun could form part of a culture calendar.

“It may be monthly morning teas, quarterly fun team building activities, corporate training workshops for groups, annual staff conferences, charity fundraising events, weekly tipping competitions and staff Christmas parties.”

Here is an outline of a culture calendar that Corporate Challenge Events has designed for a client.

January

• Team Profiling Workshop

The start of the year is a great time for a Belbin team profiling workshop which enables everyone to look at their strengths and weaknesses, and how they best fit within the team. It is useful training in the creation of new teams and re-designing existing teams.

March

• Charity Team Building Program

It’s almost a quarter of the way through the year and a good opportunity to take some time out for mental rejuvenation and inspiration. A charity team building program will not only be fun and team-focused, it will enable you to do it for a cause.

July

• Mid-year Staff Conference

It’s time to re-set for the next 12 months with some strategic planning at your mid-year staff conference. But don’t make it all too serious. It will help keep everyone engaged if you mix up the program with some fun team building activities and a social night out.

September

• FISH! Training Workshop

The FISH! Philosophy is an awesome methodology for teams to instil a positive team culture. It really invigorates people and can provide a massive contribution to culture in the workplace. Your team will learn four simple practices that can be applied immediately for a very powerful effect.

December

• Christmas Party

This is a traditional way of rewarding and thanking staff for their efforts through the year and to celebrate a very festive time. Why not do something a bit different though! Take advantage of the weather with a fun outdoor team building program first, like Survivor or City Scramble, and then wind down with presentations and a nice dinner to round out the year.

Corporate Challenge Events delivers fun team building activities in Australia and New Zealand and is regarded as one of the leading culture-focused corporate training providers in both countries.
