Form a Team to Walk for a Good Cause

NJ MET, Inc. supports the by participating in two of its walks a year. In the spring, we walk in the Manhattan March for Babies and in the fall, we walk in the New Jersey Bark for Babies in Bloomfield.

Both of the events are a great way to spend relaxed time with fellow employees. Everyone has a good time at the walks and knows that they are contributing to a great organization.
To organize a team from your company, register your team with the organization and start publicizing it about two months before the event, providing a registration address. (It could be either the organizations official website or a designated employee.) Encourage participation by periodic announcements, testimonials from past participants, etc. You could even provide refreshments at the event. Make sure to take pictures at the event and post them at the office afterwards.

Foster Office Camaraderie by Sponsoring Event Teams

One way to foster camaraderie in the office while doing good for the community is to sponsor a team in a large charity event. At NJ MET, we have walked in the March of Dimes Walk for Babies for the last 12 years as well as participated in the annual Jimmy Fund walks. Our employees are proud to be part of Team NJ MET at these events. We also encourage our vendors and customers as well as our neighbors in Clifton to join the team.

Participation in these events gives employees time to share a common interest and relate to customers and each other in a more relaxed atmosphere.

To increase employee interest, you can have a group of employees select the charity event to participate in and also design T-shirts to be worn at the event.

Don’t forget to take pictures at the event and post them in the office!
