Ballooning for Business: Team-Building in the Skies

29th September 2014    News

Corporate hot air balloon flights are an activity that features on almost everyone’s ‘bucket list’. Soaring up above the landscape, watching the landscape below turn into a beautiful panoramic model world and gazing into the sunset is something that many people aspire to do. In fact, research has shown that balloon rides are one of the top ten lifetime experience goals people hold in the UK. Ballooning is truly an activity like no other, and one that everyone should try out at least once. However, it also serves a number of other very positive purposes. One of these fantastic benefits of ballooning is business building.

Balloon flights are great for almost every business event you could think of. Perhaps you are looking for a team-building activity to help new employees bond with your workforce. A balloon flight is fantastic for this because it is a fun activity that the team will enjoy, but it also makes people work together. The rigging process, where the crew set up the balloon and get it inflated before takeoff, and the de-rigging procedure, where we roll all of the air out of the balloon and pack it up, is a laughter-filled experience that really gets everyone co-operating and building friendly but productive relationships. This sense of involvement in the activity and pride from having made it all happen is very positive for working teams.

Maybe you are looking instead to reward your staff for a particular achievement, company anniversary or at the end of the year? Ballooning is an awesome experience that everyone will enjoy. Of course, the rigging up and down is still a lot of fun, but then there is also the flight itself. This is a relaxing and awe-inspiring experience that will allow your employees to bond over the beautiful views as a sense of calm fills everyone – great for a bit of down-time after a busy time in the office.
