On April 12th and 13th, 2019, the staff of Xiamen Ricun, the manufacturer of water pipe cleaning equipment, came to Jiu Long valley in Putian for a two-day outward training. By doing all kinds of outdoor activities arranged by the coaches, which requires real-time communication and cooperation within each team, the staff has experienced what it is like to work as a team, and the positive outcomes teamwork might bring.
During the evening gathering, each team took turns to perform on the stage, a different side of the employees has been discovered and revealed in front of the whole company. Sometimes you will be surprised how many talented people are hidden around us.
After the training, many employees stated that they have gained a lot from this short trip. “The biggest challenge I encountered during this training, was the psychological transition from “me” to “us”, in other words, to think as a team member instead of as an individual. When the group were on the same page, we were able to get rid of the distracting thoughts and accomplished the goal.” Said by a colleague from the Sales Department, who was also one of the group leaders during the training.
As for the reason why this special training was held, the company CEO Chen Jiangxin has something to say: “A great team means a group of individuals are doing the same thing to achieve the same goal. I wish the employees would get an impression with each other. We are an innovative enterprise, many young bloods (mostly born in the 90s) has not fully adapted to the working environment, a series of experimental training should give them some inspirations and a deeper understanding about teamwork, objective, cooperation and rivalry. Meanwhile, as an employer, also as a leader, I have a responsibility to take good care of the employees, by giving them opportunities to make accomplishments.”
