Absinthe fountain installed in the forest


Celgene Corporation is a pharmaceutical company that makes cancer and immunology drugs. The company has its headquarters in the USA and is a subsidiary of Bristol Myers Squibb.

In 2015, the company decided to build a new manufacturing site in a valley of the Canton Neuchâtel in Switzerland, called Val-de-Travers. At this occasion and since this was a major project, the management needed a strong project team and took the decision to outsource team building activities to Prefix.

Later the company also mandated Prefix to organize different other team building events, workshops and a social program for the employees.


  1. Organization of a 2-days project kick-off during which the team worked on the design of an absinthe fountain, as per the tradition in Val-de-Travers.
  2. Organization of a project team building event to celebrate the inauguration of the fountain installed somewhere secret in the woods.
  3. Organization of a team event for 100 people during which the group participated to the cleaning of a very touristic area called Gorges du Seyon.
  4. Organization of a social program that offered the opportunity to employees to spend quality time with handicaped people.
  5. Training in project management.
