Clash of the Titans? No! Together on one ship…


Are you wondering where we constantly find the energy and inspiration for new projects? We won't lie, we sometimes feel the routine in our work too. However, that doesn't mean it's something we identify with. To keep ourselves from getting overwhelmed by work, we spend time together on one ship outside the office every now and then. This summer was no different; we relaxed and had fun at the Ondrej Cibák area. Once again, we had the opportunity to get to know each other in a different light, in unexpected and sometimes even uncomfortable situations.

Do you know how a true IT professional relaxes?

Teambuilding full of original fun is gradually becoming a regular part of our routine. Each of us is different, and finding the optimal option for everyone can sometimes be challenging. We don’t underestimate its preparation and dedicate the appropriate amount of time to it. We want to enjoy it not only as colleagues from work but mainly as a great team of people. Because that is the foundation of our successful operation. Quality teambuilding strengthens team spirit and builds camaraderie among us.

Aim twice, shoot once…

…. or a brutal clash of IT nerds.

We have truly had enough of online and computer games. But taking part in a real paintball tournament was something we were all excited about. 14 IT nerds, 3 teams, no victor or loser—just heaps of great, unforgettable fun. Our paintball session was exactly that. We proved we are all on one ship, not afraid of challenges, not giving up under any circumstances, and playing until the last paintball is spent.

And it goes without saying that after an exhausting fight we recharged our batteries by enjoying great food and staying hydrated by a well-balanced fluid intake.

Together on one ship

After quite a shootout and some recovery we jumped on the rafts to go whitewater rafting right in the heart of Liptov. Whitewater rafting and the beauty of the wild river has taught us that sometimes you need to work exceptionally hard and sometimes to just take it easy and let yourself drift along by the current. Once again it strengthened our belief that cooperation and team work can take us in the right direction and to the finish line.

And what does it look like when we let ourselves drift along by the current?

It may not always end up as we expected but it happens sometimes.

The wild river experience was not underwhelming. Not in the least, which is why we could not miss out on a break to rest a little (and top up on fluids).

We take our leave from this teambuilding event as is customary for great events: well rested and in high spirits, bursting with adventures but at the same time a little nostalgic. We cannot wait to have another one because we know it will definitely be worth it!

And to conclude…

… do you know what makes our team invincible?
The knowledge that nobody is the loser. Despite our paintball fight at times looking like “a clash of the titans” and our whitewater rafting like “a fight for survival”, we believe that cooperation makes us a winning team that can do anything it sets its sights on.
