Tips for a Successful Corporate Team

  • Secure executive leadership support and/or participation
  • Gauge employee interest in participating in the event
  • When you have a core group engaged to participate, identify a strong team leader to be the team captain
  • Set up a meeting in the break room to let everyone know about the event and the team – invite the JWCF staff to come talk about JWCF and the JWGS
  • Organize weekly team walks during lunch or before work
  • Create a team t-shirt to wear at the event
  • Designate a volunteer to set up a team tent at the event – somewhere for everyone to gather before and after the run / walk
  • The team tent should have some seating, a table, decorations, snacks, and drinks – not much is needed for snacks and drinks as we will have both at the event
