Fighting through an upstream river and walking up a cliff in the pouring rain. These are things that aren’t usually part of a working day at DFDS. However, as part of our UK graduate scheme, the first and second cohorts of graduates shared a few days of teambuilding and bonding in Eskdale in the Lake District.
The group was taken through the countryside to take part in an outward bound course where they hiked up mountains, abseiled down steep drops and had to make their way through fast-flowing rivers.
The feedback from our graduates about the day was extremely positive. Aris Stefanou says: “The programme was not just limited to outdoor activities. Numerous tasks and exercises were included that required us to work as a team to overcome challenges and find creative solutions to problems. It is important to note that the various tasks that we did were specifically tailored to teach us the DFDS Way and after completion of the tasks we reflected on our performance. Personally, this was very beneficial to me as it helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses, and how I could become a better individual as well as professional.”
All in all, the graduates had a fun-filled, informative and adventurous few days with each other. We wish you the best of luck in your futures with DFDS.
