Optiver

Employee Teamweekend

Working together with D&B Eventmarketing, the exchange-trading house Optiver from Amsterdam annually puts together a spectacular personnel event. Each year, the employees are surprised by a weekend that delves into the company's ambitions. This year, the central theme was teambuilding 3.0. No tedious knitting workshops or golf clinic, but the discovery of each other's talents, to experience cooperation and success together in an extreme way. Challenge each other and create new teams that rise above departments.

SURPRISINGLY COMPETITIVE Optiver’s employees had not been told a thing. The entire weekend was clouded in mystery. “Destination unknown. Expect the unexpected.” At Twente Airport, the guests were gathered, “drilled” in ludicrous fashion, after which, they were separated to participate in a wide range of challenging activities. To get to know a different side of each other in a weekend. In groups, specifically composed on the basis of personal talents, participants competed with one another. A physical and intellectual challenge. The airstrip as “engineering playground” for Optiver’s traders and ITers. Avoiding photographers, staying out of the clutches of police dogs, breaking out of escape rooms, herding sheep, working on your own team weapon with welding and metalworking techniques… it was all part of the program. Extreme experiences that could only be solved as a group.
8 TALENTS PER TEAM 23 TEAMS, 12 CHALLENGES IN 38 DIFFERENT ROUTES
CELEBRATING TOGETHER Essentially, there were four events after each other during this day; each of which revolved around cooperation and surprise. After the teambuilding event, a large dinner in a hangar followed, according to a “sharing is caring” concept. The evening in particular was one large celebrating party with music and dancing. Finally, the employees of Optiver spent the night in a “glamping site”; a glamorous campsite, which, due to the expectation of rain, had been housed in a different hangar. A campsite with a barista, a tent with a divan for each person, hammocks, terraces scattered through the hangar and so on.

INTENSIVE COOPERATION It was an event with a clear start and a finish and well-established communication objectives. Through the intensive manner in which the teams cooperated with each other and the many opportunities for socialising during the dinner, at the party and later, at the glamping site, the employees got to know each other much better.
