Have you been put in charge of organising this year’s corporate retreat? Or are you looking for new team-building ideas? Here at ActivityBreaks.com we have years of experience in organising breaks and holidays all over Europe for companies who wish to motivate and reward their hard-working employees. Here are a few things we have learned along the way:
What benefits do corporate breaks offer companies and staff?
Successful team building – an active break is ideal for those who would like to foster a sense of community and camaraderie in the workplace.
Group activities like white water rafting, canyoning, and orienteering are a fantastic shared experience that most people will never have tried before (so everyone is in the same boat) and require no previous experience or special abilities.
They are a great way for your staff to get to know each other outside of the workplace, helping to increase cooperation when you are back in the office. There is nothing like sitting down together in the evening and chatting about the day’s activities over a cold beer to really get your team to bond.
Loyalty and motivation are perhaps less about the activity itself, and more about being invited on a corporate break. By making the staff member feel like they are important enough for the company to go to this expense and planning, this will be mirrored in how important the organisation becomes to them too.
As well as this, increased well-being of the staff through decreased stress and increased motivation will also work for both parties – the staff member benefits because they will feel healthier and happier, while the company is likely to see fewer stress-related work absences.
What activity holidays can be tailored to corporate groups?
Most! In the past we have sent corporate groups on ski holidays, multi-activity summer holidays and even to see Andrea Bocelli perform live at his annual concert in his hometown.
If you think your group would prefer something active this winter season, then why not check out our range of ski breaks? Whether you would prefer a catered chalet, a luxury spa hotel, or a more budget friendly option, we can cater to your preferences.
Alternatively, if you would prefer a corporate break in the summer, we have a range of multi-activity holidays that can be tailored to your group’s needs. Whether you’d like to go cycling or hiking, or try something new like rafting, canyoning or kayaking, why not contact us to see how we can arrange the perfect corporate holiday for your company.
Lastly if you are looking for something less sporty and more cultural, we offer a number of cultural breaks as well as ticket and event packages. From Six Nations tickets to Andrea Bocelli’s spectacular annual concert in the Teatro del Silenzio in Lajatico, we really do have something for everyone!
