Organising a company trip can be hard work but the good news is that choosing the right destination gets you off to the best possible start. In this respect, Val D’Isere is a destination worth considering for your future corporate breaks.

The following are some of the reasons why this French Alps ski resort is a fine choice for your next company trip.


Surprisingly Easy to Get To

One of the keys with any corporate break is to make it easy to plan and convenient to get to. In this respect, it comes as a surprise to some people to find that the lovely Val D’Isere is a lot easier to get to than they had thought.

The best way to get here is to fly in to Geneva Airport. From there, it is just a short transfer by road to get to the resort, which makes it ideal for companies that only have a limited amount of time for this trip.

In no time at all, you will far from the usual workplace and ready to enjoy everything that Val D’Isere has to offer. This also means that everyone will get there feeling fresh and ready to enjoy the full experience from the very first minute.

With top quality short ski breaks you can leave work on the Friday afternoon and be in the resort before closing at the bars. Another option is to make it a midweek break instead and break up the week in this way.

No Work Distractions or Interruptions

Having meetings, workshops and team building sessions at work is always a bit of a risk. This is because distractions or interruptions can ruin the flow of the event and possibly even cause it to end earlier than anticipated.

The same applies when you organise a trip to somewhere close to your work. When you are close to work it is hard to avoid distractions and easy to get drawn away from the event by a phone call or a message.

On the other hand, in the French Alps you will feel a million miles away from the stresses and strains of everyday work. This makes it perfect for dealing with the business at hand instead of worrying about when the next interruption might arrive.

Being able to get together without any distractions means that you can be a whole lot more productive and get through a lot more than might otherwise be the case.

Get Inspired By the Scenery

Perhaps you need your team to come back from this corporate trip feeling inspired and ready to get to work with high motivation levels. This can be one of the strongest reasons for getting the team away on a trip like this in the first place.

Bearing this in mind, it is definitely the kind of destination where everyone will feel inspired by the brilliant scenery all around them. It is easier to generate new ideas and feel more positive about the future when you are surrounded by beautiful snowy mountains.

Maybe the team has been struggling for ideas or for motivation lately. If this is the case then you could very well find that a change of scenery like this is ideal for getting them going again.

We all love to go somewhere new and doing this can help us to think in different ways from when we are back home.

The scenery here is beautiful and all you have to do is stroll outside for a few minutes to appreciate it. The worries and stress from back at work should soon slip away once you get caught up in the natural beauty all around you.


Build Stronger Bonds

Team building is a hugely important part of any manager’s role. No matter how experienced and skilful your team are, they will work a whole lot better if you get them better acquainted with one another.

Strong team bonds can be built in a number of ways. One of the very best approaches is to take them away to somewhere fabulous like Val D’Isere, where they can have a lot of fun together.

The highlight of the trip might be skiing out on the slopes but there are plenty of other exciting things to do together here as well. From other adventurous winter sports to trekking and wandering around the town, there is never going to be a dull moment on a trip like this.

The more new and interesting things that you all do together the stronger the bonds you will build on this trip. By the time you head home the team could have a completely different dynamic and a far better way of understanding one another.


Eat and Drink Together

The time spent eating and drinking together is a valuable part of any business trip of this kind. This is a time to take it easy, get to know each better and have a few laughs at the same time.

Val D’Isere has an excellent selection of restaurants and bars where you can have a fantastic time as a group. There are few better ways of ending an exciting day in the French Alps than by sitting down for a terrific meal and a few drinks.

There are several quality restaurants to choose from in Val D’Isere, with an interesting variety of different cuisines available too. Among the best restaurants for a corporate group here are La Grande Ourse and Les Marmottes.

When it comes to popping out for a few drinks and some more bonding the choices are equally good. For instance, a fun evening is all but guaranteed in a great place such as the famous Dick’s Tea Bar.

Other quality après ski spots here include La Folie Douce and the Pacific Bar. You can all have a great night in one of these places having a few drinks, listening to live music and maybe watching some sports on the television.

If you are making this trip as a reward for high performing staff then the pleasure of eating and drinking out should be enough to encourage them to try and warn another trip like this. Those staff who stayed at home should also be keen to join in the next time once they hear how amazing it all was.


Head Home Feeling Relaxed and Energised

Perhaps the biggest benefits of all will be felt once you head back home after your short break. The whole team should feel relaxed and yet energized by this trip.

This is great news for any company and is especially important if you have a hectic period or a big project coming up soon. It could also give you the extra boost that you need if things have been tough at work recently.

It is a wonderful feeling to get back home after such a quality skiing trip abroad. Ideally, you will take advantage of the way everyone is so positive by working hard on your return.

A company trip to Val D’Isere can bring a huge range of benefits to the business and the employees in both the short term and long term. Whether you are building a new business or trying to reach the next level, this is a decision that you are unlikely to ever regret.
