A Kick-Off Meeting with Purpose
Company B, a global software enterprise, started the year with a theme of wellness. Looking at this value holistically, we shared the belief that well-being at work encompassed much more than just healthy habits. It included mindset, career development, positive relationships, financial security, community, and purpose.
After many months apart, this team planned to come together safely for their in-person kick-off meeting starting the agenda with a moment of self-care.
Guests arrived and were greeted with personalized PPE kits, an outdoor space to catch up over coffee, and a socially distanced space to participate in a mindful yoga class hosted by a local, female-owned yoga studio. They were given time to refresh, enjoy brunch, and have a casual meeting in this beautiful, inspiring setting.
Following the class, the yoga mats (purchased brand new for this group) were sanitized and donated to a local resource centre for young pregnant & parenting women, and for each attendee, a donation went to the Yonge Street Mission, another local organization important to this group that supports individuals, youth, and the elderly experiencing chronic poverty.
“Everyone was congratulating me on a great event, but it was all you. It was amazing. The venue, the food, the setup, the give back. Thank you for your attention to detail!”
“What a fabulous experience, thank you so much for the morning!!
Great cause, great atmosphere, thank you for getting me out of my house with this awesome team.”
“Thank you, WholeHearted Team! You all put a ton of thought into making it a great experience, especially considering the current situation. It felt so good to see my team in a safe environment!”
