Corporate events company, Team Tactics, has launched a unique team building event entirely dedicated to sustainability to help organisations strengthen employee relationships and highlight important environmental issues.

Watts Sustainable’ sees corporate teams compete against the clock to take on a series of challenges, with a key focus on responsible materials sourcing. The activities range from exploring historical artefacts and the importance of heritage conservation, to hands-on ocean clean-ups using eco-friendly materials, including bamboo poles, hemp string and eco-leather.

Teams must navigate through an interactive game map through sustainability, biodiversity, energy, hope, ‘Our World’, recycling and AI zones, tasked with sustainably manufactured challenges and a series of questions. Contestants work with reused and recycled items, and well as responsibly sourced materials such as FSC-certified wood and sugar cane plastic from renewable plant-based materials.

Sustainability is advancing on business agendas as an important consideration to engage, attract and retain employees, especially those of younger generations. Research from Deloitte shows that 69% of consumers want to see their employers investing in sustainability efforts, and this figure was higher among employees surveyed between the ages of 18 and 34. The data shows that the employers ’getting it right’ in the eyes of Gen Z employees typically benefit from increased morale, wellbeing, recruitment and retention.

Research from Culture Amp also shows that companies in which employees feel a genuine commitment to sustainability can experience a 16% higher engagement rate.

Commenting on the latest addition to the company’s team building events portfolio, managing director at Team Tactics, Tina Benson, said, “Employers have an opportunity to strengthen teams and morale by engaging workers on climate and sustainability issues and demonstrating alignment with their core values.
“As the first of its kind, Watts Sustainable is a fun and competitive team building activity that raises awareness around environmental issues and the impact our everyday behaviours and decisions can have on the planet. It was important to us that all materials were sourced responsibly to uphold the integrity of the game and appeal to the environmentally conscious businesses looking to take their team building in a new direction.”
The event is designed to test teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills. It’s suitable for groups of anywhere between 20 and 200 people and can be hosted anywhere across the UK.
