Somerville, NJ—Many companies meet for annual summits and sales awards events, but eyewear company Viva International Group added a beneficial charity component to its four-day meeting.
Held at the Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio, Texas, the internal team-building event benefited the Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas. Best TeamBuilding, a team building facilitator, divided Viva’s sales associates into teams of 10 to 15 members, where each team had to assemble 36 bikes for limited-income families in the the San Antonio area.
Teams received a set of challenges to solve in order to move on to the next level of bike building.
“The summit was an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our sales consultants while sharing new ideas for future success,” says Viva’s president Frank Rescigna. “By exploring innovative ways of working together, we were able to contribute our time to also helping others in need. We are looking forward to taking the enthusiasm of this week into 2012.”
