Corporate social responsibility (CSR), is a growth activity for businesses, and consequently, the demand for corporate social responsibility team building activities is too. CSR or Social Impact (SI) team building, has been delivered with passion by Quest since 2007. We offer an end to end service from sourcing projects to hands-on management of all parts of the delivery. Read on to find out more…
Team Building with Real Challenges
Corporate social responsibility, (CSR), and through it the benefits businesses provide to their community is a sixty-plus year concept. Directly linking CSR with team building events is a more recent approach.
Popular thinking around corporate events involves teams taking time out from work, and experiencing a variety of team challenges or contrived activities. Quest delivers these events every week. They’re excellent and they return positive results.
There are though other methods to energise, strengthen, and motivate a team. Those methods do not use contrived activities, but instead, use real situations and authentic challenges.
Do you want a team building event, but hanker after something different from traditional formats? If you want team building that will not only develop your team but assist your community here’s good news. Right now you’re on the best website.
Finding the Ideal Event
There are many organisations which will provide you with excellent traditional-format team building events. There are far fewer which can also provide the highest quality corporate social responsibility team building activities. Quest does and we know we’re the best.

Quest has been delivering corporate social responsibility team building activities for most of its existence as an event management company. In that time we have built fabulous relationships with highly deserving community causes and projects, all desperate for assistance. Those relationships mean we have the pedigree and experience to go back and repeat. We also have a sparkling reputation that enables us to smoothly source new causes and projects.
Delivering Outstanding Projects
On all corporate social responsibility team building activities, Quest provides a total start-to-finish package for our clients. We source the project or community-cause; liaise with the leadership team or persons responsible, and conduct an initial site inspection. Once the project potential is confirmed, we visit again with our client to gain their agreement. When reached Quest then completes further detailed site inspections and produces a Statement of Work, (SoW). The SoW is the task list and guide which will take us through to the end of the project.
"We only commit to projects where clients can make meaningful contributions"
Quest has some strict, simple rules that it always follows in planning and fulfilling corporate social responsibility team building activities. We only commit to projects where our clients and Quest can make meaningful contributions in the allotted event time. Within a project, we never start any task that cannot be completed. We separate the client team into small sub-teams and each is accompanied, guided, and managed by a Quest team member. Teams tidy and clear as they work. Most importantly we guarantee that we will leave a project in significantly better condition than when we started. That’s a quality guarantee meaning that a task not quite finished, will be completed by Quest’s team after our clients depart. Finally, a Quest director manages all of this process, and leads the event delivery from start to finish, with no exceptions!
Conveying Positive Outcomes
Affirmative outcomes from Quest team building events are numerous and wide-ranging. Improved levels of communication, reconnection between disparate colleagues, and greater consideration of time management and planning are common positive developments.

We understand that all of these outcomes are also noticeable following a corporate social responsibility team building activity. And there are other specific outcomes too.
Teams report that they feel extremely proud and also humbled following a corporate social responsibility team building activity. Their sense of accomplishment is significant.
When back in the workplace teams report that positive feelings that began during the event grow and flourish. They say they had a great team experience. Team bonds are strengthened and appreciation of their team-mates skills is heightened. Wellbeing is boosted and advanced.
And wonderfully, all of these affirmative team results are in addition to what has been achieved for the project.
"Teams that take part in these events experience many positive outcomes"
The cliché, “a win-win outcome” is trotted out too often. However, with corporate social responsibility team building activities from Quest, it is not a cliché. Teams that take part in these events experience many positive outcomes. Also, the project or community-cause receives so much priceless help, which would be unavailable without CSR input.
Professionally managed voluntary work to assist projects and worthwhile community-causes is also an incredibly powerful way to develop teams. Quest has fourteen years of experience in delivering corporate social responsibility team building activities, and we would love to work with you. If your team would like to help your local community and would also benefit from a team building event, call us. Teams that have made that call will tell you it’s likely to be the beginning of a lasting legacy.
