AATCO LLC, an Ali & Abdul Karim Group Company, organized a 2-day team building workshop for its staff at the Al Nahda Resorts and Spa, Barka on 13th and 14th August

AATCO’s week-end get-together with families of all staff of AATCO/Remal Muttrah/Majan Plastic was a recognition of 3 aspects. 1) Recognition of a good performance by the team so far this year despite the global recession around us – sometimes it does become important to recognize good work in a way the team feels re-assured about their importance and contribution 2) Recognition of the family values of this organization by inviting all staff families into this gathering, those families who support us all during our long hours at work…they do need to rewarded for their patience and contribution and 3) Recognition of our own potential as a team to break new grounds, if & only if we can all work on critical aspects of Inter-dependency between our various inter-dependent functions, Trust in the abilities and potential of each team member and Effective Communication which does not get delayed by bureaucracy in a flexible, world-class organization. By way of simple team games, the team gathered more insights into aspects of Inter-dependency, Trust & Communication which will help in the future interactions and allow greater focus to achieve the company’s Vision.
