Company Skiing Trip

Have you ever considered organising a company skiing trip?

There are lots of benefits:

  • Using up winter holidays
  • Cost effective holiday to promote teams
  • Motivation and morale

Winter holidays are a pain to promote, why would you want to go on holiday when the weather is bad when you could save up your holidays and go off during the summer? However organising a company ski trip will promote winter holidays and if some get the skiing bug they could use up all of their holidays during the winter meaning you have more holiday resources when you need them during the summer. See our blog on holiday resource and calculate if you have enough resource.

If you as a manager promote the ski trip, you could go along to a travel agent a long time in advance and get the best deals for your department/group and because you are group booking you can negotiate a substantial discount. That discount may be enough for you to pass on the savings to your team and enjoy the skiing trip yourself. What’s more if you were to organise several ski trips (one for each team) you could promote team building and help your team to work better through the relationships they build whilst on holiday.

Having a subsidised ski trip which would only cost the company the time it takes you to organise it, makes the employees feel valued. After all how many employers would go to all that trouble (a few phone calls, some posters and emails). A company skiing trip is a great way to ensure your staff are committed to you, after all if they have to be with the company to go, who is going to quit before the ski trip?

One company we worked for went to the trouble of organising a company holiday which included hiring their own aeroplane. They also allowed families to go. This was just to thank them for working with the company and acted as a bonus for moving shift patterns. There was several other departments in the company who then considered moving shift patterns.
