Embracing Unity and Reflection: ITTF Foundation's Team Focus Week
At the ITTF Foundation, the recent 'Team Focus Week' marked a pivotal chapter in its journey, emphasising reflection on the past year, collaborative planning, and celebrating collective achievements. This unique initiative not only strengthened the team bond but also showcased the dedication of each staff member. The core ITTF Foundation staff was also joined by Charlotte Lourdes, ITTF Group HR Head.
The week commenced with a reflective look at the past year, celebrating accomplishments and learning from challenges. This retrospective exercise fostered a culture of openness and continuous improvement.
Team members shared insights on what worked well and areas where we met with challenges; generating innovative solutions and strengthening communication within the team.
The 'Team Focus Week' emphasized refining internal communications, ensuring messaging clarity, and exploring new tools. This laid the foundation for improved collaboration and understanding among team members.
In addition to professional aspects, team-building activities took center stage. The team was divided into groups, with each group cooking a meal for the larger team, fostering camaraderie and appreciation. Team lunches, dinners and even a visit to the Christmas markets fostered this spirit further!
Strategic planning for the future involved setting goals, identifying key initiatives, and devising action plans. Milestones and timelines were established for efficient progress tracking, positioning ITTF Foundation for a year of growth and innovation.
The week extended beyond the professional realm, incorporating sessions on employee wellbeing, a code of ethics, and sustainability in the group overall. These initiatives showcased a holistic approach to team development and organizational values.
