1. Big Picture
It is a creative activity that brings to the fore cooperation, communication and interaction between team members through their involvement in the process of painting a large-scale artistic masterpiece. Most of the times the painting was auctioned and the collected money was donated to a community.

The CSR twist is diverse, from donating equipment to some schools to involving children in creating cars or winning and donating bets.

4. Making the News
The simulation of a newspaper editorial offers both the fun and the incredible energy of a group of participants who are about to write the latest news from “tomorrow’s” newspaper. This offers the possibility that strategies and communication related to CSR are exposed to the entire group of participants.

An activity suitable for sales teams, suitable for anyone who comes into contact with the company’s external stakeholders. It is meant to stimulate communication skills, team coordination and negotiation by challenging the participants to think, produce and sell pastry products to the local community.

Creative Juices is a business simulation that challenges the relationship and communication skills of the participants, but at the same time puts them in the context of fun and adds a dose of energy to any event. The first part of the simulation brings to the fore complex distribution problems. It can be adapted to how the carbon footprint can be reduced.

[cml_media_alt id='5188']20_10[/cml_media_alt]

10. Orchestrated
Electrifying effect provided by your team! In half an hour she learns to play a musical instrument “Carmina Burana”. The CSR twist can be given by the fact that the entire activity can be included in a charity concert.

3 aspects to take into account in creating the culture of innovation

30 Mar 2015

Corning Company Inc. has created a series of videos entitled “A day Made of Glass” which has the role of inspiring employees to achieve results aligned with the company’s objectives.

It is well known that employees who have a personal connection with the job are much more involved. The question raised by Generation Y is: “How can your company and my job have an impact in the world?” By clearly communicating the purpose of the company.

The Toms Shoes company is guided by a simple idea: for every pair of shoes purchased, Toms donates a pair to an underprivileged child, and in this direction the company invites its employees to participate in periodic events that have this purpose. Toms employees are not only ambassadors of the brand, but more than that they are the brand in action, changed and inspired by the experience, they return to the office motivated and much more involved in the company’s activity.

2. Integrates the company’s brand into work processes
The highest enthusiasm of an employee is on the first day of work. Insight that the Zappos company noticed and turned into an experience, helping it to be known for a customer service company rather than for the online store of shoes and clothes.

From the first day, employees are exposed to customer service experience. In the first weeks, the employees go through all the departments, from the call center to the branding of the website and up to packaging and transport.

3. Communication
The innovation process depends on the engagement of employees. The best method to nurture their engagement is to keep them active in the loop of the process, whether email or an internal communication tool is used, they must be informed about the status of their idea.

Here are 4 key steps that must be communicated in the innovation process:
Receiving ideas – communicate to your colleagues the receipt of ideas and their status. Our recommendation is that each participant in the innovation process receive an answer regarding the receipt of ideas; it is important for them to know that their idea has not been lost digitally.
Feedback – even if an idea is rejected, this must be communicated. No feedback can be worse than rejecting an idea, as long as it is communicated properly;

As in any successful business, the culture of innovation must be continuously managed and kept up to date with market trends.

How to create a collaborative space: 5 personalization elements

02 Mar 2015

< img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-4409" src=" _5-elements-de-personalizare.jpg" alt="10. How to create a collaborative space _5 elements of personalization" width="790" height="357" />

Leon Festinger, Stanley Schachter and Kurt Back raised the question “how was friendship formed?”, why some people build friendships that last for years. Several experts, including Sigmund Freud, argue that the formation of a friend can be traced back to childhood, when the values, beliefs and attitudes are formed which later are decisive factors in the creation of friendships. But Festinger, Schachter and Back came up with another theory, which contemporary prophets such as Steve Jobs, Sergey Brin (Google) and Larry Page ended up implementing. These experts consider that the physical space and the time spent in it are the elements of creating friendship.

Research shows that an employee is happy when collegial relationships are passed to the level of friends, given the fact that we end up spending a good part of the day at work.

From the right colors, to spaces intended for telephone conversations or offices where silence prevails, work spaces must be a combination between structure and fluidity. Thus, we created a list of 5 elements to be taken into consideration when creating workspaces:

  1. Design Matters
    When you choose your holiday accommodation, do you choose a room with fluorescent light or one with monotonous gray walls? The answer is obvious. The same applies to offices, design matters, given the fact that employees end up spending 9 hours a day.
  2. Personalization
    Family photos, plants or wall-stickers, elements that employees can bring to the office, and their impact is huge, so that employees end up creating a community. In addition, “they end up behaving more naturally, which brings a good input for innovation and creativity. When you add trust and comfort to a relationship, people end up assuming certain responsibilities.” (Kevin Kuske, Turnstone General Manager).
  3. Organize the office by zones
    Like a city, the office should be organized by areas, for example if you want to have a conversation go to the kitchen or the terrace, if you want a more secluded place or to have a private conversation you can go to an area where there are sofas or if you you want a relaxing break or a refresh from what you are doing, you can go to the terrace or the yard.
  4. Branding and organizational culture
    It is very important to align the office space with the organization’s brand and culture. From extra mascots, to gadgets, objects that the company creates, pictures painted by employees during team building events
  5. (re)creative spaces
    Plants, light and all elements related to nature are small changes that it is good to adopt in the company. Studies show that natural light is beneficial to health and even helps to increase creativity. Also, we all like to be playful from time to time, maybe for some it’s closer to a lifestyle, that’s why a game room or a recreational space is more than welcome in an office space.< /li>

Allow employees to be creative in their own way, whether they customize the things on the desk to their liking, some prefer to write with a pencil and others prefer a digital component. All this helps to create a community within your company, and a community can aim so high that the results end up being more than great.

Personalized employee engagement programs: Tips&Tricks for 2015

11 Feb 2015

8. Personalized employee engagement programs - Trends and Advice for 2015

The challenges raised in HR are happening at an astonishing speed, whether we are talking about the sunset of pension plans, a quality management talent or the preservation of human resources in companies.

Companies have responded positively to these challenges, that is why they are creating more and more opportunities for employees, appropriate rewards and frameworks conducive to a work-life balance.

A wave of challenges is coming dictated by demographic and cultural changes, new technologies and start-up culture. Here are some things to consider for 2015 as an anticipatory strategy for these challenges:

    In recent years, it has been noticed that Generation Y has begun to take over a large part of the labor market. Studies predict that by 2030 this hyper-connected generation will dominate approximately 75% of the labor market, which leads to the conclusion that Generation Y will change the course of employee involvement in companies. Companies’ strategies will adapt to the needs of this generation, knowing that they want to make their mark in everything they do – the “9 – 17” program is becoming more and more irrelevant for them, they want to be involved in as many projects and to make direct contact with clients, they prefer coaching sessions instead of feedback sessions or they want to receive rewards for each step taken in their professional development. (
    Read more about Generation Y)
    In 2015, we want “out-of-the-box” thinking to come out of the typical cubicals that sit under the fluorescent light of the room. It is known that a place lacking inspiration leads to the detachment of employees.
    A catchy and engaging space will cause employees to get more involved in the company’s activity. Depending on the organizational culture, it offers employees the freedom to stay as far as possible from the cubicles, the possibility to decorate the work space as they like – for example, with pictures from within the company and from internal events or pictures painted by them themselves in teambuilding events.
    The sky really is the limit when it comes to creating the perfect environment for employees!
    Creating a balance between work and the personal life of employees is what is wanted in 2015. Today, companies have more possibilities to offer employees the necessary framework to work anyway and from anywhere – whether we are talking about a Hub, a terrace or a the cafe. Technological evolution offers the possibility for employees to work from home as well, this leading to maximum productivity and contribution as far as they are concerned.
    The involvement of employees also depends on the transparency of the information coming from the management. Whether we are talking about objectives, strategies and desired changes in the company, the employees must be made aware of them, where else do you stand if you involve them in setting the respective objectives? The result will be fantastic! 🙂
    The company Buffer has passed to the next level from this point of view, the one in which salaries and the calculation method are made public for employees, investments and internal emails sent between two people will have a specific list in “cc”.
    What do they have in common: Casual Friday, birthdays, Hawaiian Thursday or “Sharing (food) is caring” days? All this brings fun and a “boom” of positive energy in the office.
    Choose to celebrate the launch of a product, involvement in CSR activities in the community, a welcome party for a new employee or the conclusion of a big project, all of these break the monotony of the office and provide relaxation among the employees.

Transparency increases trust, and trust is the foundation for incredible teamwork. Employees want to know what the company’s long-term goals are and how they can contribute, practically they want to know what the impact of their work is. They must be given the necessary trust because their involvement in the company’s plan could bring the next success.

Just as the purchase decision does not start and end in the store, the employees’ decision to get involved in the job is not limited to the workplace.

Event management: trends in 2015

27 Jan 2015

7. Event management - trends 2015

If in 2014 the events industry brought improvements in terms of faster registration, the quality of content delivered in events or a “simple-is-beautiful” type of marketing, this year everything becomes more captivating: better planning, creativity in attracting and participant involvement and industry-wide innovation.
For the foundation of creativity, we looked at some of the most credible sources for monitoring the events market in the world. We share with you our conclusions about what will be hot in 2015:

    The events industry has evolved so much that an event does not mean only 2-3 days of engagement of the participants, but we are talking about a community of people with an affinity for a certain topic. In 2015, we want to create a cycle of experiences offered to participants that starts long before the event and does not stop immediately after the event.
    It is not strange that the mobile phone has become part of our lifestyle. In 2015, the applications designed to satisfy the needs of the participants and to offer an integrated experience in the event will bring an impressive ROI.
    Studies show that only 60% of participants download the event application, and 10% use it. The challenge raised by the network is: how exactly can the digital engagement rate of the event participants be increased?
    In 2015, the emphasis will increasingly fall on end-to-end solutions. These allow the organizers a comprehensive management – from concept and ideation, to creative declination on absolutely all media up to the use of a platform for registration and communication with event participants and the insertion of the latest interactive digital technologies.
    In the case of large-scale events, the amount of data obtained from the registration system and feedback questionnaires is large. If in the past the information was collected and analyzed after the event, today the respective data can be analyzed on the spot. The technology brings to the fore behavioral analyzes of the participants, the observation of a behavioral pattern and feedback.

In addition, a trend that has become the rule in the industry is the transition of the event organizer from the simple status of a service provider to a creative partner that offers innovative programs and experiences to participants.

Therefore, 2015 comes with stability and clarity in what started in 2014 and adaptability to the needs of the participants. However, let’s not forget that there is no riskier strategy than doing today the same thing we did yesterday.

HR Manager magazine: How do we quickly restore energy in organizations?

11 Dec 2014


Somewhere around 80% of the briefs we receive include in the first part a phrase like “to motivate the team”, accompanied by explanations such as “they have low morale, there have been and are some difficult years, we have to help them find their the motivation”.

Having contact with many companies in the market and running projects with hundreds of teams over the years, you can’t help but wonder how some teams are united, full of positive energy and the motivation to make things happen, in while others seem blasé, drained of energy and without a bit of desire and aspirations to go on an upward path. The correct, desirable answer consists in a balanced combination between a leadership and management team, which inspires its people permanently, and a coherent structure of organizational systems and procedures, which ensures that all the important motivating factors, identified by the literature of specialty*, are present in the company and work. We are talking here about:

  • collaboration with colleagues;
  • the fairness of the distribution of resources;
  • procedural justice;
  • the possibilities of professional growth;
  • clear performance standards;
  • a relevant, impactful job;
  • autonomy;
  • receiving and providing clear and transparent feedback;
  • a balanced workload;
  • variety of tasks.

So far, all good and beautiful! The only problem is that in real life, this kind of construction takes years and involves areas that the human resources manager, towards whom the expectation of “doing something to motivate people” is directed, cannot touch directly because he does not have the necessary resources.

The obstacle to small plans
I’ve always envied start-ups for their opportunity to do this kind of organizational building right from day one. It’s just that we don’t live in a world exclusively of start-ups. What do we do if the organization is 10-15-20 years old in the market and has a legacy of people, procedures and habits that do not promote an inspirational culture, capable of motivating people to give their best? What do we do when we feel the need for a quick intervention to give back to people that sparkle in their eyes, that passion for the work they do, that confidence that together with their team they can achieve the proposed plans despite all the difficulties?

I think I have an answer and to formulate it I will use a quote, found earlier in a book. It’s a quote that remained deeply imprinted in my memory, because it turned out to be much deeper than I had perceived it the first time. It belongs to Daniel Burnham, the famous architect who rebuilt the city of Chicago from the ground up, after the great fire of 1871. He said this: “Don’t mess with small plans; they don’t have the magical power to make people’s blood boil.” And his vision was translated into a city that is still one of the most imposing and innovative urban centers in the world. What does Burnham’s quote teach us? If we were to paraphrase it on an organizational level, it would probably sound like this: “only an ambitious, revolutionary vision can bring passion and energy to the minds and actions of the people in the organization”.

And yes, I think nothing is truer than this statement. Just how many times does an organization have the opportunity to launch itself, to reinvent itself, to receive a CEO with a new vision, to experience a massive reorganization of the brand or operations, that kind of movement that instills energy and hope in people? Maybe once every 5 years… maybe 10. And then, what can we do to obtain the same mobilizing, inspirational effect, in the context in which we should reduce costs, grow organically by 5-7% or at least stay at the same market share?

A handy alternative, but less intuitive
The answer to the above questions can be surprising: offer your people the opportunity to achieve incredible things together in a team building. And I say “surprising” because I am referring here to a new philosophy of thinking and building a team building. This is not the place where we have fun and eat. It’s a total of two hours in which 100-200-1000 people work TOGETHER to achieve a totally and totally extraordinary goal.

I saw what it means to tell 200 people that in an hour and a half you will sing Carmina Burana with them on 7 instruments and voice. Everyone laughs and says it’s impossible. I then saw the emotion and tears in their eyes, the endless applause they offered each other at the end of a concert in which they were the only artists. The surprise of realizing that YES, you, together with your colleagues, can achieve absolutely unbelievable things, brings with it an energy and a confidence that you can hardly awaken simultaneously in such a large and diverse group. Many will tell you that it was one of the best things they did in their life and will talk about it for days on end.

I saw what it means for 100 people to work together for a whole day to build a 15m high replica of the famous Big Bang Tower only out of cardboard bricks. Starting from the impossibility of visualizing how it could look and ending up taking 10 steps back and saying “wow….how does it look!” Did we do this?”.

I saw what it means for 400 people to work for 3 hours to paint together a huge painting 15m long and 3m high, made up of 120 independent pieces that come together perfectly in the final moment. The feeling of fulfillment and belonging that you feel in such a moment is very difficult to describe in words.

The energy that is created in such a moment is unique, intense, and its concentration in such a short interval makes a team building event a memorable experience, whose motivational effects will be felt for a long time. When was the last time you had “goose bumps” thinking about the team and the company you belong to?

Microsoft Summit 2014: What innovation in technology means

28 Nov 2014

6. MS Summit - What innovation in technology means

The second edition of the Microsoft Summit event took place between November 12-13, 2014, in an exclusive location, Willbrook Platinum Business & Convention Center. Being the largest technology conference organized by Microsoft in Romania, this edition brought together over 1500 people from the C-level area, IT professionals and developers.

The agenda of the event allowed each participant to take over all the know-how in the field, considering the 3 tracks developed during the two days: Business Manager, IT Professional and Developer.

Considering the fact that business rules are constantly changing, the role of the 3 tracks was to guide each professional to participate in the sessions focused on the field in which they are active, at the same time having the opportunity to accumulate insights to Microsoft representatives and other speakers with a solid background in the field.

Also, the Microsoft representatives oriented their presentations around Microsoft technologies, so that the audience becomes aware of the impact they have in the current business environment.

Therefore, the event was an experience full of challenges and professional satisfaction. The feeling of safety and professionalism demonstrated by each member of the team, led us to realize how important it is that every time the whole team has the same goal, more precisely the successful conclusion of an event characterized by the spirit of uniqueness and professionalism .

Another important aspect consists in the high level of networking during the two days of the event, which proved to us once again that the IT market in Romania is a market with potential and in continuous development. A significant contribution in this regard was made by the MyConnector application, which represented an effective means of communication and according to the latest trends. The interest of the participants regarding the topics related to this niche was also manifested during the sessions, which is why they turned into a constructive dialogue between the professionals who wanted to take over all the know-how and the speakers willing to provide feedback as much as possible. concrete.

I noticed the professionals’ passion for Microsoft technologies right from the time of informing them about the quality of the event, and the surprises did not take long to appear. Thus, the sessions ended by offering prizes to the most active participants, who were delighted with the way the event went.

What have we learned? “You will have a thing when you believe in it”, Wayne Dyer

What did they learn? It’s simple. When it comes to the future, regardless of the industry in which someone works, the one who later adopts the new trends, goes out of business. A solid plan, built for the future for the company, gives it performance and longevity.

In conclusion, the passion for organizing events left its mark in the case of this large-scale conference, a fact that makes us happy to continue in the same formula.
