Inter Departmental Game
Inter-departmental game Good communications, good working relationships, exercising leadership, being appreciative and offering support are key qualities of any organization. In order to enhance these qualities, an inter-departmental game was played. 3 teams were formed, after mixing up the individuals from all departments. They were named A, B and C. The teams were assigned a task to write down positive points about Alight. In order to give them more exposure, the quieter staff members were given leadership positions.
Team C won and was acknowledged and appreciated by everyone. The game proved to be an effective exercise for breaking the ice, empowering staff members to work better together and for building team spirit!
