Employees of the NEDA Regional Office (NRO) 7 trooped to the Kool Adventure Camp in the mountains of Balamban town in southwest Cebu to hold their annual team building activity last 26-27 July 2018.
NRO 7 Regional Director Efren Carreon, in his message on Day 1, said holding the activity was important to harmonize employees’ personal goals with that of the organization’s.
“There will always be disagreements in doing things but there are ways of coming up with a more acceptable working environment. We want to continue and sustain the teamwork that we have been doing and continue to pursue excellent work as a member of the Philippine Bureaucracy. That is the essence of our pursuit of excellence,” he said.
This year’s activity was more adventure-filled, with NRO 7 employees performing different indoor and outdoor experiential learning activities like Personal Discovery, Ropes Courses, and Low Initiative which enabled participants to understand the fundamentals of team performance, get to know one another better, and provide a common ground that foster teamwork and collaboration in NEDA 7. These activities also helped identify the participants’ strengths and how these could be tapped to help improve the organization.
