Team Spirit

 

Team Spirit

Do any other utilities do any kind of exercise or activity where employees compete against each other or with other utilities on different activities?  These events create some team spirit, improve morale, and improve fitness.  For example, Progress Energy has a lineman's rodeo where lineman compete doing their different work activiites (pole climbing, etc.)

OG&E also have lineman that compete in a linesman rodeo, but at the present time do nothing in Fleet. Fleet has talked about it several time but it is difficult with the limited number of mechanics.

Iberdola USA has 25 repair locations. We have a monthly contest via e-mail. The techs are given 5 questions from the ASE work books. All those with the right anwsers are put into a hat. The winner wins a $200 gift certificate to the Snap-On tool truck.

One of the things I wanted to do was have a mechanics rodeo internally and the winner goes and competes in a larger event.  I have looked and looked and the only one I can find is put on by the ATA at their technical expo.  You can visit their website to find more information. They also say they will work with organizations who wish to put one on. I haven't gotten to that point yet...but I am thinking it might be the only way to get something to our area.
