Summer is a great time to reward your hard-working employees with an afternoon out of the office. Not only is a grown-up field trip a fun way to celebrate landing a new client, finishing a big proposal or launching a new piece of software, it’s a great way to keep employees happy and productive.
Check out this Mashable article heralding the benefits of employee outings: “Statistics show that you should — strong relationships with co-workers foster happiness and productivity. A report from RedBalloon/AltusQ found that companies with high employee engagement levels were up to 10 times more likely to see an increase in sales and profit than those with lower engagement.”
OK, now that we’ve established the benefits of leaving the cubicle and getting some fresh air and fun, the big question is: What should you do?
Charleston Harbor Tours has some great corporate event offerings. We provide incredible views of the Charleston harbor, delicious food and warm hospitality. Leave the planning to us so you can enjoy the camaraderie of your co-workers and simply relax and unwind.
Or you can take your employees out for a team building sailing exercise aboard the Schooner Pride, an 84-foot tall ship. Sailing provides the ultimate team building setting, requiring participants to use communication skills during obstacles and challenging situations.
Plus, the Schooner Pride’s route along Charleston harbor offers a beautiful outing on the water with views of the most popular Charleston attractions. Team building and corporate sailing events can be customized for each business and we can arrange a deli-style lunch or appetizers.
Can’t you just feel the stress of the work day melting away already?
