Habitat Build Days

A one-of-a-kind employee engagement opportunity to build your team, your brand and your community!

This one-of-a-kind employee engagement opportunity offers your company the chance to build your team, your brand and your community!

Book your Habitat Build Day and give your corporate team a unique opportunity to connect outside the office and spend the day on a Habitat build site, working together to help build Habitat homes alongside families in need of affordable housing. Whether your team wants to build walls, help with clean up or do landscaping, we have tons of engaging opportunities year-round!

Fun, meaningful experiences like Habitat Build Days are not only a great way to give back and build your company profile as a committed corporate citizen, they can also help you attract new talent, retain valuable employees and strengthen workplace culture.

  • Engage employees in a meaningful, cost-effective experience
  • Provide a fun, interactive way for employees to connect outside the office and recharge while giving back
  • Align your company with a globally recognized charity
  • Energize and unify your workforce

Team build days start at $5,000, and many corporations offer matching programs for employees interested in volunteering with a charitable cause.

Work in the Tech Industry?

In 2019 we’re launching Tech build to specifically engage this sector.

How it Works

No construction experience or gear required! We take care of it all, from registration to tool belts and steel toes. The team building starts when you arrive on a Habitat Greater Ottawa build site. Your team will spend the day learning new skills together, working in collaborative groups to complete building tasks. At the end of the day, you’ll have accomplished something meaningful for your community as a cohesive team.

With a Lot of Help From our Friends!
