Growing team bonds at Teva Ireland

21st of Oct 2018

garden transformation

Irish eyes were smiling after colleagues donned gardening gloves and wellies to dig deep for a community volunteering day.

Yvonne Kavanagh, Hospital Key Account Manager at Teva Ireland, helped organise the event for the Commercial Team to help transform a garden area for elderly residents in Dublin, Ireland.

“We were given a project of making Teva a great place to work as part of our Task and Finish Group,” said Yvonne. “After a huge number of colleagues left due to redundancy earlier this year, Teva wanted our team to have a bonding day. It had been a very difficult period for everyone with lots of changes and the idea was that we could appreciate what the new Commercial team in Ireland is about.

“Our team doesn’t work together in an office; most of us are field based in different parts of Ireland so we only see each other at sales conferences three or four times a year. We therefore looked for something away from the work environment. The team also really wanted to do something to help people, specifically elderly or disabled people.”

The volunteer day was organised with the help of Volunteer Ireland. The team of 17 chose to transform a communal garden area at Woodstock Court, a residential assisted living community for older people.

Yvonne explained: “One of our core values is caring, and this project aimed to help people who weren’t in a position to do their own gardening. It was also a great opportunity for us to work with colleagues in a different environment - and have some fun!”

Volunteer Ireland ran the early September event and provided the materials while Teva covered the extra costs, including lunch, dinner and refreshments, hotel accommodation and extra plants.

“The initial garden area was pretty bleak,” said Yvonne. “We had to dig everything up then it was a case of raking, weeding, covering the area with mesh and stones, laying gravel and finally planting shrubs to brighten the place up.”

“Everyone got a huge amount out of the day,” said Yvonne. “It certainly created a ‘feel good’ effect. We sent out some questions via an anonymous survey and most people said the day had made them feel good about Teva and also about themselves. They also felt it would encourage them to do more volunteering out of work in the future. ”

“It was hard work but there was a huge sense of pride in what we’d achieved. We were also proud that our company was willing to afford us the time and costs to do such a worthwhile project. ”

Sudocrem and Infacol both scooped Gold at the recent National Parenting Product Awards (NPPA) 2018 in Ireland.

Sudocrem came top in the Best Baby Nappy Cream category while Infacol won the Best Baby Treatment for Relief of Colic.

The biggest names in baby and child products attended the celebratory luncheon, held at the Westbury Hotel in Dublin city centre on 25 September, including Pampers and Mothercare.

Yvonne Neeson, Senior Product Manager for Generics and OTC, said: “I’m so proud to win these awards because they are independently tried and tested by parents.

“The fact that the products are voted for by real mums and dads makes the awards really powerful.”

Now in its fifth year, the NPPA event covers 55 categories, from nursery items to baby care products and travel systems. In total, the products were tested by more than 300 mums and 20 experts.

Yvonne, who collected the award for Sudocrem at the ceremony, added: “Sudocrem is an iconic brand in the Irish market, trusted and used by generations of Irish parents.

“To win this award for the second year in a row demonstrates the power and the trust that consumers have in the brand.”
