bo events: JUST SAYING ‘THANK YOU’
TEXT: SILKE HENKELE I PHOTOS: BO EVENTS
Incentive trips are a unique way of showing appreciation. They motivate employees, teams and clients with a long-lasting effect. They can also leave a much more profound impression than one-off bonuses or premiums.
Solidarity and mutual appreciation within a team, but also the relationship with clients, play a major role in a working environment. This is particularly true in times of digitisation and a growing number of remote workplaces. “Under these conditions, i.e. when communication becomes ever more technical and lacks direct social contacts, company culture and direct client contact suffer,” observes Andrew Bojarski, managing director of event agency bo events in Riedstadt. “Under these circumstances, it is sometimes really hard to create a genuine team spirit or to develop a sense of solidarity.”
Against this backdrop, bo events has a clearly defined task: the motivation of teams and clients. In addition to the organisation of team building, CSR or networking events, the event professionals plan and manage impactful incentive trips, thereby offering companies an exceptional opportunity to shape teams or to thank clients and employees in an appreciative way. Here, there are practically no limits to imagination as the event specialist confirms: “We fulfil almost every wish. One day or five weeks? Eight participants or 2,000? Vietnam or Lake Constance? Yacht or island? A race on self-built rafts on a lake? A relaxed truffle field trip with wine tasting in Würzburg? Or perhaps a horse ride to see a herd of giraffes in an African resort? We will try and realise almost anything to put the world and its most stunning facets at the participants’ feet. Oh, and by the way, we only ever suggest experiences we have tested ourselves.”
Whatever the outline of an incentive trip, one thing is beyond question for Bojarski: “We are a full service event agency by conviction and with a passion for passion. And we know from our own experiences about the energising effects and the importance of shared, appreciative experiences for teams and clients. The thing is: anyone can book an all-inclusive tour on the internet. It does not take much. The participants arrive and leave. That’s it. Our individually-designed incentive trips, however, generate true experiences. Experiences and adventures that are firmly associated with a company. They are an invaluable gesture that shows the participants: ‘We care about you, we are glad that you are here’. A thank-you cannot resonate more beautifully, don’t you think?”
