IrisCube, one of the main Information Technology companies in Italy specializing in supporting the principal industrial groups for the definition and development of business models enabled by the new technologies and communication paradigms, has contacted us for the realization of a Team Building.
Moved by the desire to explore alternative but always high-profile team activities, we were asked for a Team Building for 150 employees. On the one hand, it allowed us to restore the corporate atmosphere lost due to the quarantine, while on the other hand, it allowed us to welcome newcomers.
We thought it was necessary to propose an "exercise" through which to nourish healthy competitiveness among employees and, at the same time, allow them to have fun discovering the stories of one of the most beautiful places in Italy. The treasure hunt: a great classic, but in great demand among our customers; a team building made up of puzzles, riddles, and quizzes, which requires problem-solving skills under pressure and a great attitude in time management.
On this occasion, we wanted to propose an unconventional treasure hunt, using alternative means of transport, and for this reason, we proposed to the company to combine the team building with a corporate weekend in the Borromean Islands on the Piedmontese shore of Lake Maggiore. After a thorough scouting activity, we were able to find the location and the services that allowed us to organize the treasure hunt using motorboats as alternative means of transport for the competing teams.
4 teams, 1 skipper and 1 motorboat tour guide alternating the search for clues, with the story of Lake Maggiore and the Borromean islands. Once the treasure was found, the 150 employees were able to relax with a lake-view lunch and a typical lake menu.
We have succeeded in the complex organization of this activity, guaranteeing services and transfers, and achieving particularly positive results from the treasure hunt. The customer was very satisfied, not only with the proposal, alternative, and high profile as requested, but also with the happy changes later made within the company teams, a consequence of the experience.
