Teambuilding? Wat dacht je van bergen beklimmen?

Aan het einde van het jaar hebben er zeker vijftig deelgenomen, van wie 35 de vierduizend meter hebben gehaald. En dat terwijl de meesten beginnelingen zijn. Softwarebedrijf Teamwork gelooft heilig in teambuilding-activiteiten. Met bergbeklimmen in Zwitserland als extreme variant.

Philippe Rey-Gorrez, founder of the software company Teamwork, has a passionate belief in what can be achieved in groups. And this self-taught IT engineer, officer in the French army at 18 and sports enthusiast has applied his passion to his work in a very real way: He offers the 280 employees of his Geneva-based company the possibility to live original experiences outside the office, “to be together and feel good,” he says.

From cooking classes to theater expeditions to European cities and sailing trips, the company — specialized in project and wealth management software — is not afraid of investing in its own employees.

But perhaps its most extreme team-building activity is mountain climbing, which took on a whole new scale after Rey-Gorrez set out a noteable challenge: for the company’s employees to climb all 82 summits in the Alps with peaks above 4,000 meters (13,123 feet).
