There is no denying that the health and wellbeing of a workforce is an extremely important theme currently influencing every industry. After all, a happy employee goes hand in hand with greater success and productivity levels. As an award-winning conference and training centre, Whittlebury Park recognises the importance of putting ‘wellness at work’ at the forefront of a companies’ strategy and is striving to provide every business with the tools and platform to do just this.
As part of its latest mission to embrace and offer insight into a happy and healthy workplace, Whittlebury Park recently opened its doors to new and existing clients, giving them a chance to experience a host of stand-out corporate packages on offer. The ‘Event Organisers Showcase Day’ was jam-packed full of team-building activities and techniques. From a heart-racing tablet treasure hunt to a peaceful breathing and stretching session, there was something for everyone to enjoy and learn. Additionally, all guests were treated to a healthy breakfast, three-course lunch and tasty treats throughout the day - the perfect accompaniment to any productive meeting or event.
In recognition of the fact that many companies want any time out of the office to be spent in a meaningful way, Whittlebury Park also used this opportunity to highlight the opportunities available for companies to customise their own packages. Throughout the day guests were able to experience a variety of outdoor events, including a climbing wall, archery and axe throwing, clay pigeon shooting and quad biking. Competitive challenges were on the agenda too, providing every participant with a well-rounded insight into exactly what is available to suit their business needs.
An Event Manager from a local charity organisation was among those attending the annual showcase: “It was an amazing day brought together by helpful staff. There were lots of people on hand to ask any questions I had and it was lovely to network with all the team. It’s certainly a brilliant way to see what great things Whittlebury Park has to offer for charities.”
After an insightful and fun-filled day all guests were then given the opportunity to discover what else Whittlebury Park has to offer including a complimentary spa session in the stunning Whittlebury Spa with 32 treatment rooms, a heat and ice experience and indoor pool or a round of golf on the championship golf course.
Emma Bines, Head of Event Sales and organiser of the showcase, said: “I love hosting open events as it really gives our clients a taste of what we have to offer and how we can help them to create a healthy workforce. For me, seeing the vision become a reality and watching the enjoyment on our guests’ faces during the day whilst they experience what we have planned is priceless. Given the circumstances that the industry is currently facing, the fact that guests choose to come to us means a lot and we really do appreciate them giving up their time.”
