Corporate Team Building in Hong Kong

Posted by | December 12, 2013 | working-in-hong-kong

Corporate team building in Hong Kong usually comprises meals or a fairly restricted range of internal or third-party activities. If your team has tried scavenger hunts, paintball, art jamming and ‘Virtual F1‘ (or you simply want to try something different), try ‘Crossroads’.

The Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation linking those who are in need with those who can provide help. They offer four intersections, literally crossroads, to bring both together.

One of those, their Global Village range of simulations, provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and the poor.

Teams are immersed in situations that simulate the challenges of those in need. During a half day or whole day, teams are taken through activities that reveal insights into the lives of people and families living with specific challenges. The Crossroads corporate team building therefore raises awareness of issues and could serve as a springboard for corporate CSR initiatives or personal volunteering.

 

The ‘Struggle for Survival’ saw us trying to earn enough to survive by making paper bags out of newspaper and home made glue. We had to earn enough to pay for rent, food, sanitation, medical needs and education. Groups that couldn’t make enough money ended up in the hands of a loan shark. We had to deal with unexpected setbacks and some very thought provoking decisions and outcomes.

In conclusion, the simulations are a great way to support a local NFP whilst building a team and raising awareness of those in need.
