Managers given decorating challenge

UK managers from environmental consultancy MWH have completed a team building exercise in which they were set the challenge of redecorating a much used art-room and kitchen in Sheffield's Mencap Gateway day centre, in just one day.

Members of the management team came from all over the UK to tackle the Sheffield challenge.

Janet Sullivan of the Sheffield Gateway Mencap centre said the day was a great success: "There were many in the centre who did not believe that this challenge could be completed in one day alone. This is a great boost to the centre. Both these rooms are at the heart of the work we do with the people using the day centre, so it is fantastic to see them looking so bright, light and cared for."

Despite completing the challenge in the time allocated, the MWH team did not leave site until they had additionally painted a corridor connecting the newly decorated rooms.

Ian McAulay, MWH UK managing director who participated in the challenge, said: "This was one of the best team building activities I've been involved in. It supports our vision of sustainability and our commitment to contribute to the communities we work in. We all really enjoyed our day's work and found it very rewarding and are now looking at making all future management team building events activities which will serve the community in some way."

Headquartered in Warrington, MWH has 18 UK offices. The company has 6,000 employees worldwide.
