The most important asset for Motive Offshore is its staff. We believe that providing employees with the opportunity to support and motivate each other outwith the working environment results in strengthened professional relationships within the team.
Team Motive formed organically as a result of staff members seeking opportunities to come together to undertake challenges and fundraising initiatives as a team, supporting local and national charities. Team Motive provides employees with the opportunity to challenge themselves, gain new skills, socialise outwith the working environment, as well as reaping the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle. Motive Offshore has actively supported Team Motive’s efforts through encouragement and financial commitment.
Since forming in 2014, Team Motive has taken part in a variety of fundraising and community initiatives which to date include:
- The Knock Hill Race - annual
