Summer is officially upon us. The days are long, warm and you might be thinking about ways to keep your employees motivated at work. What about a company outing or retreat to keep morale boosted?
Just remember, an outing is meant to be something nice for your employees and not something that’s more difficult than fun. Asking your employees to drive their own vehicles to a location other than the office — especially if it’s a long distance — is bound to get negative feedback. Arranging transportation for your next corporate retreat makes it easy for your employees and the company. This post will walk you through the benefits of chartering a coach for your company outing and what Red Arrow offer to help.
Why Rent a Charter Bus?
Initially you may have thought that renting a bus would be more expensive than having everyone drive themselves. In reality, you’re probably going to end up paying more in reimbursements for employee parking and gas. Renting a charter bus for your company outing not only eliminates costs for you, but provides a ton of benefits for your team.
For one, it’s comfortable. Something as easy as comfort on a day off from work goes a long way. Employees can relax, make small-talk with other employees (which increases team building), and have a stress-free start and end to the event. Second, it gets everyone to the outing at the same time. Think about it: how many of your employees run late to work everyday? Chances are if they’re late to work, they’ll be late to the tee time too.
Third, it’s safer. Anytime you schedule a company outing, you have to consider the safety of your employees. Asking them to drive their own vehicles, especially in the early morning, for long distances, or in poor driving conditions, is a hazard to their safety and something you have to consider as an employer. Rent a charter bus and ease your worries. Your team will arrive together and most importantly, safely.
