Staff from both Octagon and Abbeyfield House, recently enjoyed our annual team building event. Held over two days, the first day consisted of a range of fun and interesting activities designed to help staff understand both their own and their co-workers strengths, behaviours and personality traits and how to successfully apply these in team and work situations.

The scavenger hunt proved very popular, with teams having to work together to complete a number of tasks and find certain objects in and around the locality. Each successful achievement was documented with photographic evidence to ensure there were no short-cuts!

Day Two focused on essential updates with staff benefitting from training in a number of areas, including the latest Health & Safety legislation, infection control, fire safety and moving and handling techniques. We all felt that we had gained some valuable insights and look forward to applying our newfound knowledge over the weeks and months to come.
