Businesses Participate in Habitat’s Team Building Program

When Punker, LLC's Hickory-based employees decided to participate in a team building opportunity, they looked no further than Habitat for Humanity of Catawba Valley. Not the traditional team building experience with ropes and personality tests, the team of employees spent the day working together and learning more about one another on a Habitat Catawba Valley worksite to help a family in need.  

An affordable and effective team building experience, Habitat Catawba Valley offers this unique opportunity for local businesses and organizations to strengthen their teams and share an experience that will impact the community for years to come.

“I was so impressed by my fellow colleagues,” says Punker, LLC employee Raymond Snipes. “By the end of the day, it was plain to see that together as a team, we can build better than by ourselves.”

Habitat Catawba Valley officials express this is just one of the benefits of participating in their Corporate Team Building program. The day together creates an environment of caring and cooperation among team members as they work to complete their part of a Habitat home. Additionally, it builds a balanced team, increases understanding of co-workers' ability and builds a sense of community within the company.

Participants spend the day building a home together, starting with a morning orientation and safety overview. Then the team takes part in building activities on the worksite. The day concludes with a facilitated discussion and reflection session.  The registration fee covers up to 15 participants and includes all construction materials for the group, lunch, team t-shirts and a framed certificate of completion.

“I would like to thank Habitat Catawba Valley for allowing Punker, LLC to give back to the community that has done so much for us and allowing us to be included in a small part of this family's life,” says Ryan Kilkelly, managing director at Punker, LLC. “This day proved to be an excellent team building exercise. We are looking forward to future opportunities to serve again.”
