WTS Paradigm Holds Team Building Event for EmployeesOctober 11th, 2013 by DWM Magazine
Middleton, Wis.-based WTS Paradigm held its Madison City Scour event for employees recently. The City Scour is an all-company event in which employees are divided into small teams and sent across downtown Madison in a competition to solve clues and take photos at different locations. The event involves a mix of trivia, photo clues, videos and road block tasks.
WTS Paradigm employees were split into 23 teams and were given more than 140 clues leading to different locations across downtown Madison. Teams had a little over 2-½ hours to complete as many clues as possible. For the 2013 City Scour, WTS Paradigm upped the stakes again, adding $1,000 from WTS Paradigm that the winning team could donate to the charity of their choice.
One WTS Paradigm employee says, “You have a very short timeframe in which to establish a good dynamic, or you don’t do well in the Scour. You have to do a very fast assessment of skills and strengths, and then divide tasks accordingly. Then, you have to determine your priorities and sort the challenges accordingly. It’s definitely a great way to learn team building and team participation skills.”
The winners of the 2013 City Scour were the “Electric Pink” team. They selected Tri 4 Schools as the charity of their choice. A $1,000 donation will be made to Tri 4 Schools from WTS Paradigm on behalf of the Electric Pink team. Tri 4 Schools is a non-profit with a mission to help fight childhood obesity in Wisconsin by raising money for schools through race events.
