Why Electra For Your Corporate Event?

Today, the corporate market is much more competitive than ever. If companies want to remain relevant players in their industry they must adapt – and quickly. The most important reason for this tipping point in business is the fact that with so many different options available to choose from, it becomes that much easier to switch allegiances overnight.

If you want your company to stand out from the crowd, then take a bolder approach – plan your next corporate event onboard a luxury yacht. At first glance, this might sound unnecessary and even pretentious, but here are two solid reasons why it’s not only a smart strategy but also a secure investment:

In 2013, millions of North American employees took part in a survey to better understand the most common sources of stress, and the numbers speak for themselves. Roughly 41 percent recorded work overload as their primary source of stress, and 62 percent reported to have a stress level much heavier than they could handle.

Don’t let burnout consume your most priceless asset – your people. By chartering a luxury yacht for your next intra-company events – such as team building activities, corporate dinners, or staff awards – you’ll be giving all of your collaborators a sense of belonging, purpose, and confidence to continue supporting your endeavor with their invaluable set of skills.
