In September 2012, a team from the Deloitte Bristol office joined Secret World for the day and undertook tasks very different from their day-to-day routines and helped clear and re-vamp our otter enclosure.
The enthusiastic Deloitte team also helped erect fencing around the site, a task needing lots of muscle and something that Secret World would really struggle to do alone. They worked exceptionally hard and were so efficient they even had time left over to sweep and clear areas of the Secret World site to ensure it was neat and tidy for the New Year!
When asked what they thought of the day they spent with us, they said:
“We had a wonderful day at Secret World and it was a humbling and thoroughly rewarding experience that I would recommend to any company team.
Secret World staff were very clear with the jobs to be completed but allowed us to delegate effectively so we could still exercise team building skills throughout the day.
In addition to completing the tasks for the day, Secret World staff were very keen to show us all the work that the charity does. The tour of the site and the presentation provided to us outlined the key strategies for Secret World. We got to see all the varieties of animals that Secret World cares for from baby hedgehogs to a raccoon that had only just arrived! This hands on experience with the animals really motivated us for the rest of the day.
The difference to the otter enclosure from the start of the day to the end was incredible and really filled us with pride that we could contribute to the Secret World strategies and provide a rehabilitation sanctuary for otters before being released back into the wild.”
