In the Press

Whilst many companies in our industry seem to follow the same formula, we pride ourselves on our ability to do things differently. Consequently, some of our more creative and socially-minded exploits end up in the press.

Here are some of our programs that have made the news.

Connecting Corporates and the Community

Nicki McKenzie - Tuesday, October 18, 2011

We've all been on teambuilding days that entail abseiling, raft building, or jumping off 13m platforms, but how many of us have been on a team day that achieves tangible and valuable results for the community? At Transforming Teams, we specialise in connecting corporates with the community, and Atlas Iron's Ngayanhtharti Day was a perfect example. When over 200 Atlas Iron volunteers descended on Port and South Hedland recently for a five hour busy bee, the results were astounding.

Corporate philanthropy is on the rise, and with good reason: team days based on giving back not only strengthen a constructive corporate culture, they also help with employee retention, engagement and work performance, and better embed your organisation in the community. Read for yourself the results that can be achieved on a team day with a difference!

Atlas Iron Classic Dash (Fremantle)

Wade Cockfield - Sunday, April 03, 2011

Although we're passionate about facilitating learning, sometimes we're asked to do something feel-good or funky – programs that incite laughter and camaraderie that extend beyond the boundaries of the organisation or team.

Not that the day was entirely without learning: Atlas Iron participants learned how to better communicate and trust by working with Activ clients and letting them lead the way; they practiced showing appreciation by saying "thank you" and showing support by making flower arrangements and delivering them with a hug and a speech to those in the community who volunteer their time to make the world a better place; they learned to coordinate their actions across the entire organisation by writing and publishing a collective children's book for the Starlight Children's Foundation to utilise and sell; they learned how to be respectful and humble by learning how to sing from the St Patrick's Community Support Centre's homeless choir; and they learned to lead by thinking about the wake they were leaving behind. They did all this whilst laughing all day.
