Sailing builds bonds among employee ‘Crews’

The owner of document management firm Laserfiche figures the staff that sails together stays together.

The Long Beach, Calif., company started a competitive sailing team last summer. The sailing crew is made up of employees from several departments, including company executives.

Employees who sail get to know each other, explains Michael Dwane, a regional manager involved in organizing the sailing team. “You’re talking sailing but you’re talking life, you’re talking company lessons,” Dwane says. “It’s not just about being competitive; it’s about opening new horizons, experiencing new things, bonding as a company.”

About 10% of the company’s 200 employees are part of the Flying Fiche’s sailing crew for this season’s nearly 30 days of racing. Laserfiche equips employees with their sailing supplies, including gloves and sailing shoes.
