Saturday Interactive Session - March 2016
Interaction is what we do every day with our family, friends, co-workers, etc. but at emmbi we take a step further and make “interactions” fun than serious. HR team of Emmbi introduced “Saturday Interactive Session” last year which takes place every Saturday at our head office and factory. This platform works best to talk anything and everything but not work. The activities include fun games, debates, discussion on mutually agreed topics, share a story, play a sport etc.
In the month of March, one activity was undertaken in which the participants were given a potato and straw. The activity required the teams to put across a straw through a raw potato in one shot. Without giving a thought few participants quickly made an assumption that it is not possible. But they were the ones who were able to do it in one shot. This activity taught a lesson that to execute any assigned task one should follow (PDCA – Plan – Do – Check – Action).
Also an interesting activity was conducted in which the HR team shared 5 stories with the emmbi team mates throughout the week. These stories were based on life lessons and the participants were asked to jot down their comments on a piece of paper and to correlate the stories with their personal and professional life experiences. Each employee shared their experience and the activity was followed by motivational videos.
