A-LIGN recently held its annual summer training, CLIMB 2019: MOMENTUM in Denver, Colorado at the new Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center.
This year was the largest CLIMB to date with 265 A-LIGN CLIMBERS from across the globe. They joined their families at the annual teambuilding and training event which celebrated A-LIGN’s 10th anniversary, an inaugural “Trekking for 10 Years” 5K challenge and companywide momentum.
THE CLIMB TO THE TOP: GOING THE EXTRA MILE FOR THE COMMUNITY
Over 150 A-LIGN CLIMBERS and their families participated in A-LIGN’s inaugural 5K charity challenge that benefited two local charities: Junior Achievement – Rocky Mountain and MaxFund Animal Adoption Center. Junior Achievement Rocky Mountain prepares young people to thrive in the 21st-century workplace and global economy by inspiring a passion in free enterprise and entrepreneurship and instilling an understanding of personal financial literacy. MaxFund Animal Adoption Center is Denver’s true no-kill animal shelter and adoption center that gives animals, including the injured, abandoned and abused, a second chance at life.
CLIMBERS and their families braved the rain and chilly weather to complete a 5K challenge. Each CLIMBER and family member that participated got to choose between the two local charities A-LIGN donated to for all the proceeds of the 5K. A-LIGN donated a total of $4,000, a $2,000 donation to each local charity. Blaise Wabo, Senior Manager at A-LIGN finished the 5K in 21:26, a time that CLIMBERS are already training to beat at next year’s event.
SCALING THE SUMMIT: TRAINING OUR TEAM TO BETTER ASSIST OUR CLIENTS
In addition to CLIMB’s charity component, the A-LIGN team spent time in training to enhance their skills and ability to better service A-LIGN’s clients. Topics covered leadership training, general business updates, annual performance awards, teambuilding activities, technology updates around A-SCEND and an in-depth look at the breadth of service offerings that help clients demonstrate trust and respect to their stakeholders.
