Workplace Olympics: Embracing Diversities & Teamwork
How many people does it take to plan the Olympics? If your answer is over a hundred, you’re right! This does not include the workforce from various industries, ground crews, coaches and athletes! The International Olympic Committee (IOC) hosts members from all over the world, from Austria to Zimbabwe and even our very own nation - Malaysia. It take years preparing for an Olympic game and with so much diversity and pressure, it’s a wonder how they managed not to lose sight of their common goal! A workplace is very much like the Olympics - mankind is diverse in nature with each of us bearing our very own individual differences shaped by our upbringing, experiences, cultures, beliefs and more. Even the smallest establishment has indispensable roles such as: a General Manager, the leader who oversees the entire business operations, an Accountant who calculate profit and loss, a Sales Team to bring in the income. Each of them has their own responsibilities and they are co-dependent. So how do we hold a team together and how do we prevent or counter sabotaging conflicts that are bound to take place along the way? Find out how ‘Success’ is a team sport!

Happenings takes you to the making of an artist who tells his stories best through the animated characters of his creation. As publishers, we know how words can at times be insufficient, this is when graphic or visuals come in to deliver what a thousand words may not be able to.
