As a means to fraternize with clients, Computer Warehouse Group Ghana Limited ((CWG) took its staff and clients to the football pitch, with the aim of creating a congenial and relaxed atmosphere after another year of overcoming a challenging economic environment.
Despite the challenges, the economy faced coupled with a hard fought national election, CWG fulfilled its promise of using the football pitch to know its clients better.
From three teams in 2015 to four in 2016, the participating teams including CWG Ghana, National Accreditation Board (NAB), accounting and auditing firms, PwC and E&Y, the participants exhibited their skills on the Astroturf football pitch of Dzorwulu Junior High School, Accra.
PwC walked away with the trophy and bragging rights as the 2016 champions, and have assured they will be defending their record at the end of 2017.
Despite some losing and others winning, all the teams used the opportunity and atmosphere created to bond and know each other better outside the corporate environment and pledged to do more of it.
Country Manager of CWG, Mrs. Harriet Yartey, explained that the event was organised to bring some clients of CWG together to celebrate the end of year with them.
“It is a show of appreciation for the businesses they have given us. For the great relationships we have had with them to date and also to let our hair down so to speak, through exercise and fun games since we have been working very hard all year round,” she said.
She added that the company also used the opportunity to build on these business relationships and encourage staff camaraderie outside the formal setting.
“This event was aimed at bridging the relaxation gap in our corporate world with sports, as it’s been all work and no play throughout the year, thus creating an opportunity to release stress from a hectic, but thankfully successful business year, whilst jointly looking forward to an even more successful new year.”
She added that, CWG Ghana plans to expand the scope of the event to attract more clients, and will include other games like table tennis, arm wrestling, scrabble, volley ball, basketball and many more in subsequent competitions.
