AFG office Olympics hailed a success!
January 25, 2019
Fact – Monday 21 January is officially the saddest day of 2019! The staff at AFG LAW however were determined to buck the trend by hosting the firm’s inaugural Office Olympics.
Arranged by the firm’s own Innovation Group, staff at AFG enjoyed what was an afternoon of light-hearted competition and a testing of teamwork skills. Staff were split up into eight teams who then competed against each other in a series of challenges designed to test their abilities. From elastic band archery to quizzing, through to the firm’s very own escape room challenge, staff were put through their paces to see which team had the nerve and skill to come out on top.
The trophy was clinched by team Yemen, who romped home to victory, with team Iceland and Rwanda following up in second and third place.
Managing Director Anita Boardman said “We wanted to do something to brighten what is known generally as Blue Monday so when the idea of holding an office Olympics was discussed, the enthusiasm and ideas we had from the Innovation Group, which is a group made up of staff from different departments across the firm, was amazing. As a business we are committed to developing staff not just professionally but as we continue to grow, we realise that people may not know who others are unless they have worked with them so we actively encourage team building activities which keep an element of fun in the workplace.”
The games themselves were a huge hit with everyone praising the opportunity to let their hair down.
Below are some photos – I think we were too busy having fun and being competitive to take many this time. Bring on next year’s games!
