Recently, the group spent a week in Eskdale with the Outward Bound Trust working through a number of outdoor teambuilding activities, such as climbing a waterfall and taking part in an overnight expedition. Each task was centred about Telent’s Values and Behaviours and encouraged the teams to understand how the learnings could have practical applications within Telent.
The week concluded with each team presenting a summary to Peter Moir (MD – Network Services). Many of the teams drew parallels between what they’d learned at Outward Bound and their day-to-day working life, with common themes on the importance of safety, teamwork, and inclusion.
Speaking about the event, Richard Giddings (Graduate and Apprenticeship Manager) said: “Looking back, we didn’t just see Telent’s Values as a written course aim – we lived them. It was great to see every single Value reflected in each team’s learning.
“I’m sure that this will be a week that’s remembered throughout everyone’s career. A massive thank you to all of the colleagues that supported the group throughout the entire week”.
