When was the last time you had a company funded vacation for your department? I understand it’s not cheap, and doesn’t always fit the budget of most companies. But people need this rest and recreation time.
Enjoying these moments with co-workers make for new friendships and strengthen bonds among colleagues. It relieves stress, and serves as a sign that their hard work is appreciated. The fact that they don’t have to spend anything during this time is also a great thing.
Companies should find ways to make this available for their people. Proper corporate event planning should help in making costs minimal, and get the best deals for the company.
