The Team Leader Offsite is an annual event where all Lithuanian Team Leaders and Quality Specialists meet in order to strengthen the bond with Transcom, to get a deeper understanding of our company and the customer service business and of course, to get to know each other.
This year we traveled to a leisure and business club outside Trakai, a popular lake resort in Lithuania. The topic of the day was “Get to know One Transcom” which was inspired by the vision of the company. All Team Leaders and Quality Specialists had to prepare a presentation about the project they work in, describing:
- The main KPIs and best practices in their project
- Their main challenges and opportunities
- The people on the team
The presentation could be done in any format, such as video, acting, Power Point presentation, etc. As Team Leaders and Quality Specialists usually don’t know their colleagues from other projects that well, we wanted this to be an informative team building activity.
Team Leader Offsite 2014 was also special because the Human Resource (HR) department participated in the event. This definitely helped Team Leaders and Quality Specialists to be more involved and get a deeper understanding of the HR team’s crucial role in Transcom’s daily business.
Getting to know each other better was only the first task of the day and soon enough the whole team headed to prepare for the second part of the day: workshops. The team was given eight topics to brainstorm and provide ideas about; Attrition, Hiring Process Improvement, Team Leader Selection, Team Leader Training Package, Self-motivation, Transcom Brand Awareness, Transcom Events and Office Branding Ideas. The team really rose to the challenge and provided valuable insights and ideas on how these important and often overlooked issues can be solved. Moreover, Team Leaders and Quality Specialist will now organize teams not only to provide the ideas, but also to be responsible to bring them to life in Transcom’s daily operations.
The main goal of Transcom Lithuania’s Team Leader Offsite is to form a team of involved, active and empowered employees and therefore it is a pleasure to see this ultimate target achieved!
