A real team building challenge that saw participants build prosthetic hands for individuals struggling in some of the most remote parts of the world.
The prosthetic hands are transforming the lives of recipients in Uganda, Cambodia, Vietnam and India, according to David Meade, who provided Allstate Northern Ireland with an insight into life without functioning hands.
The event, held in the ICC Conference Centre in Belfast, produced 50 prosthetic hands and was the final in a series of leadership and team building workshops organised by Allstate Northern Ireland throughout 2019.
Allstate Northern Ireland has firmly embedded corporate social responsibility into its culture and business practices. The company recognises the importance of being change catalysts across society.
Allstate Northern Ireland has a workforce of 2,400 employees in Belfast, Derry/Londonderry and Strabane.
