At Webeo, we believe a positive company culture is key to our success. We’re also passionate about healthy competition, about giving back and about teambuilding. So with the glorious weather we’ve been experiencing at the Portsmouth, UK office – we saw it as the perfect opportunity to embark on all our passions at once.
The Webeo Sports Day took place on Friday, 2 August 2019 and was a great success! Sunshine, costumes and a break away from our desks to move around – all in the name of raising money for two fantastic charities.
Sports Day saw employees from across the company form teams of 5-8 members and take part in a number of traditional competitive activities — this included a three-legged race, an egg and spoon race, tug of war and space-hopper racing. The sunny Friday afternoon ended with a 3 mile run around our Portsmouth office site, which is conveniently located adjacent to a glorious lake. Costumes were strongly encouraged — the event was hosted by Webeo founders Paul Thomas and Henry Braithwaite, who both sported Hawaiian hula attire!
Managing Director, Paul Thomas, said: “We feel strongly about the importance of a fit and healthy lifestyle at Webeo. It’s something we try to encourage across the team — not just on Sports Day but every day.”
He added: “We believe it should be of the utmost importance to everyone — it helps our employees perform better at work, live healthier lives and have a little bit of competitive fun at the same time. We also offer a number of healthy lifestyle opportunities at our Portsmouth office — including a gym, regular circuits class and yoga classes, and individual health and fitness sessions designed around the individual.”
All participating teams gave it their all — morale was high and each team worked hard to motivate their fellow team members.
1st – Sales Development Representatives. This was a huge success for the team, who earned more than double the points than their second place competition. Joint 2nd – Customer Success Managers, and the IT team finishing. 4th – Sales who were last year’s winning team — came fourth followed by the Finance team in the fifth spot, the Data verification team avoided last place, leaving the marketing team to .
Webeo MD Paul Thomas added: “Sports Day is an annual occurrence at Webeo. Not only does it help boost employee morale, improve team spirit and encourage everyone to get up and move around – but it also gives us another chance to give back to charity. Not to mention that everyone has a great time messing around and getting to spend some valuable time outside!”
He added: “At Webeo, we’re committed to giving back and determined to give our team the chance to raise money for causes that matter to them most. This year, we raised more than £4,000 for MIND and Alzheimer’s Research UK — two charities that do truly incredible work and were voted for by the team to reciev the fund for this event.”
