How Goldman Sachs is leading the way in Oxfam Trailwalker

How Goldman Sachs is leading the way in Oxfam Trailwalker

by: Oxfam

Strong teams are not built overnight, and no one understands this better than a corporate. Look at investment banking giant Goldman Sachs and you’ll know why- they’ve taken team building to the next level! A mentorship programme is making use of Oxfam Trailwalker to train its next league of leaders. Here are 3 fabulous things about the programme: 

 

1. Mentoring with a twist

The programme was conceptualised in September 2015 and began in November 2015 to help Oxfam Trailwalker participants prepare for the 100km charity walk. As part of the programme, veteran walkers share their experiences of walking on the trail, give advice and motivate new Oxfam Trailwalkers. Teams are also helped in fundraising, and spreading the word about the cause! 

2. Love for Oxfam Trailwalker

Oxfam Trailwalker continues to holds a very special place for Goldman Sachs employees. Since 2013, teams have challenged themselves to walk for equality and act as volunteers during the event. In the 2016 Bengaluru edition, 58 teams had taken part, including the winning team ‘Seize the Day’ which completed the trail in 14 hours and 54 minutes.

3. Not convinced? What better than to hear from the CEO himself!

Here’s what Bunty Bohra, CEO of Goldman Sachs Services in India and an OxfamTrailwalker, has to say:  

“The competition to race and raise funds motivates everyone, but what’s really energising about the Goldman Sachs teams is seeing how they bring the best elements of the firm’s culture to the trail: leading by example, tackling the toughest challenges, a commitment to teamwork, and serving a higher purpose – in this case, making an impact in our community.” 

Way to go Goldman Sachs! This is also why Oxfam Trailwalker is the perfect team building event.
