I worked for a lot of companies that didn’t really seem to care about their employees over the years. So, as someone who has gone on to start a business, I’ve tried to do what I can to show my employees how much they are a valued part of the company. We have hosted all sorts of retreats and corporate training in Singapore for our hard workers. Not only do they gain valuable insight into how to do their jobs better, but they also get to have some time off in a beautiful location. It’s a win-win for everyone and the company itself.
The last training retreat that we held was a really nice one. Not everyone has the extra time to take a personal vacation. People have bills to pay of all kinds. People have children to take care of. But when the business you work for pays for all your accommodations, food, transportation, etc, it sure makes things easier. During the day, employees spend their time during normal work hours being trained in all sorts of things, and then after that, they can go to dinner on the company’s dime, and then they have the rest of the evening free to explore what the area has to offer.
We encourage employees to bring their spouses along. Of course, we only pay for the employee, but the spouses are welcome to stay in the same hotel room with their husband or wife at no extra charge. So, that means that one of our employees doesn’t have to pay for their own flight, food, etc. for themselves, but they only need to pay for their spouse. Then, their husband or wife is free to do as they please during the day. It works out nicely for everyone involved and has a proven record with me.
