New venture to help community
Communities and industry around the borough could benefit from
a new venture between Melton Volunteer Bureau and Achievement
Martin, a former personnel manager, said: The aim is to give people more satisfaction.
Team-building tasks include building bridges and tackling obstacle courses, but Achievement Unlimited wants its teams to complete something the community can benefit from.
As members of the Volunteer Bureau, John and Martin started the company to help the community and because they wanted to set up a business. Achievement Unlimited covers both aims.
The idea was sparked by a team-building exercise at Pedigree which saw employees lending a helping hand with the gardening at Craven Lodge School in Melton.
John said the project was a huge hit because of the sense of achievement felt by those taking part.
Another aim is to help small and medium-sized businesses which cannot afford team-building courses which can cost around £800 a day per person.
Achievement Unlimited says a company would benefit from higher quality of work, faster projects, reduced costs and absenteeism.
The Volunteer Bureau has asked groups and organisations to put forward any projects they have which Achievement Unlimited could help with.
