Encounters in events as well
After a year-long break, our wellbeing and recreational club, Hansel Club, managed to organise long-awaited personnel events with due care to health and safety: autumn day and Christmas party. The events, which have become established dates in our calendar, were filled with much-anticipated encounters, the hum of conversation, and a large serving of genuine smiles and the joy of activity.
We spent the autumn day in the fresh air playing solution-focused games. In small teams, we tried our skills at bedsheet volleyball, tying knots, and memory games. In addition to the company and games, we enjoyed good food and sauna. The most memorable part of the day was the happy chatter, which also kept us warm against the chilly wind.
At the Christmas party, we continued doing our own thing. We snatched a suitably challenging secret mission from the Christmas tree, and threw ourselves into everything during the evening. We were also entertained by the performances of our colleagues, the relaxed dinner, music and the atmosphere.
Both events highlighted the significance of meeting your colleagues in person and spending time together. As is often the case in life in general, we can say you learn to value something only when it is taken from you. We are a commendably colourful group of experts, and our colours shine best when we stand together.
Hopefully, we will see each other again at more events in future.
