Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence: In-house Research's Teambuilding Day at Bowood House


In-house Research, a leader in customer satisfaction research, recently marked a significant milestone - 25 years of continuous growth, innovation, and success. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the company decided to organize a remarkable team-building day at the picturesque Bowood House Hotel, Spa, and Golf Club. The day was filled with exciting activities, laughter, and camaraderie as employees came together to strengthen bonds and create lasting memories.

Fostering Creativity and Unity: Crafting the In-house Research Coat of Arms

Following a company update by CEO Tom Weston, everyone was given the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and teamwork by creating a unique Coat of Arms that embodied the company's core values - "Evolve & Innovate," "Have Pride, Be Passionate," and "Build Strong Relationships."

Everyone split into teams, each tasked with the challenge of designing a Coat of Arms that would capture the essence of In-house Research's core values. Armed with paper, markers, stickers, glitter and a shared passion for creativity, the teams set to work, brainstorming ideas and sketching their visions of what the perfect Coat of Arms would look like.

After a quick 30 minutes, the teams proudly presented their Coat of Arms designs to Tom and Craig Weston, the esteemed company owners, and directors. The room was abuzz with excitement as each team shared the stories behind their creations.

With all the designs displayed for consideration, Tom and Craig Weston had the challenging task of selecting a winner.

Coming Together Through Music - Samba Band Workshop

Once the creative materials had been put away, everyone was surprised by an electrifying Samba band workshop, where employees immersed themselves in the vibrant beats and rhythms of Brazil. Led by a professional musician, provided by ACF Events, the team learned to play various traditional Samba instruments, such as tambourines, drums, and shakers. Within moments everyone transformed into a lively and harmonious ensemble, showcasing their newfound musical talents.

Finding Clues, Building Bonds - Action Orienteering in the Rain

Managed by the fantastic team at ACF Events, the teambuilding adventure continued with action-packed orienteering in the beautiful Bowood House estate, where employees navigated through the lush greenery and embraced the challenge of solving puzzles and clues. Despite the rain adding an element of unpredictability, spirits remained high as colleagues collaborated and supported one another to complete the challenges. The experience symbolized the company's resilience and adaptability in the face of challenges, traits that have been instrumental in In-house Research's continued growth and achievements over the years.

A Toast to 25 Years - Evening BBQ and Disco Party
