Why Team Events?
9 to Thrive was created because we spend 70% of our waking hours at work- that's a lot of time to dedicate to an environment you don't enjoy.
How would a Monday feel if you felt energized by your colleagues, valued and recognized as a key contributor to your company? Would you want to leave?
But how do you build this?
9 to Thrive Founder Sarah Beatty, realized early on that the secret ingredient is employee engagement.
There are so many factors that contribute to engaged workforces- entire PHDs are dedicated to this, but Sarah knew there was one thing any organization could do for a quick win- team events.
With her background in event planning- Sarah had the skills to bring teams together in unique ways to foster more collaboration and help staff feel that their employers are investing in their well-being, or at least recognizing their hard work with a bit of fun to celebrate.
But it goes beyond just fun- it's good for business.
