The perfect corporate away day is possible. However, due to poorly planned and badly organised corporate away days of the past – they can have a bad name for themselves. While they used to be based around throwing and catching a ball while saying a person’s name and making a tower out of spaghetti – corporate away days have come on. They are now an event that employees look forward to. It’s a chance to bring a sense of community and camaraderie into the workplace.

Here at Elite Events ECL we help businesses like yours plan the perfect corporate away day. Instead of just choosing a location and sending people there, we listen. Our corporate away day planners will take the time to listen to you and understand what you want to achieve from the event. Based on this, we will create a unique and bespoke corporate away day to meet your budget, needs and goals.

The first thing you need to think about when planning the perfect corporate away day is the outcome. You need to think about what your goals are and what you want to achieve. Are you looking to better blend your team, take individuals out of their comfort zone or just celebrate the hard work of your team.

It’s important that you think about what your team want out of the event too. Would they like to get on better with their colleagues? Perhaps, they want to better know other teams or get to know colleagues better on a personal level.

You need to think about the needs of your employees too. How will they get to the corporate away day? If they don’t drive, is there public transport to the location? What will they be able to eat during their stay if they have dietary needs? Where will they stay and how will the cost be covered for accommodation?

When the corporate away day is finished, it isn’t over. You need to make sure that you get feedback. Find out what your colleagues loved and what they weren’t keen on. This will help you enhance your next corporate away day and make it enjoyable for everyone.

These are all things that we can do for you as your corporate away day planners. Call us now to find out more.
