The team-building aspect of a company’s staff working together to achieve a goal of, say, building an orphanage is very powerful as well.”

Hands Up Incentives offers all of these aspects for an incentive trip or team building trip.

Why choose a CSR-friendly incentive trip?

If your company is serious about rewarding your top performing employees for a job well done, then you should be planning a socially responsible incentive trip. It doesn’t just feel good, it is the best way to reward and motivate your staff, keep the stake holders happy and leave a wonderful legacy.

And what is an Ethical Incentive Trip? 

At Hands Up Incentives we combine the well established benefits of incentive travel with a charitable element. Now this takes many forms and is always tailored to your business needs, but it is a simple and very effective formula that rewards your employees, the local community and allows your company to demonstrate your commitment to a sustainable future:

  • Your employees will enjoy getting into the cultural fabric of the destination by volunteering alongside local people

  • Your employees will gain a deeper respect for the values of the company they work for

  • Your employees will feel rewarded by the positive change they have made

  • Your employees will have great memories that will last well beyond the end of the trip

  • Your employees will still have a fun and relaxing time

  • Your company will create a social good that it can tell the world about

  • Your stake holders will see that you are serious about creating a sustainable business

  • The local community you work with will reap the long-term benefits of you efforts.
