This weekend we went to Oppdal to have a kick-off with many new co-workers, but there were also some old ones. We went through a program with many ice breakers and twists planned by our president Preben.
We arrived on Friday at 19 o’clock and immediately started with some ice breakers. One example of the many ice breakers was that we ran around and had to freeze, then we selected a partner from those that were standing next to us and then we had to make a drawing of their face in one minute. I can say for sure that there was a lot of interesting contributions.
On Friday night, we got to know each other a little more with card games and drinks.
On Saturday, we had a tight schedule with team work tasks and some more ice breakers in between. A lot of coffee was consumed that day. The last thing on the schedule was that the new members were going to make the decision ragerding which project that they wanted to work on. After a delicious taco dinner we had a little ceremony where both the old and new co-workers got a medallion before Preben sabled the champagne. The rest of the night went on celebrating with conga, musical chairs and a lot more.
On Sunday morning, everyone was tired after a night with a lot of fun. The early birds did an amazing job cleaning up and the others were good at helping when they finally got out of bed. I think everyone had a really enjoyable time and we are all quite excited to work further on our projects!
