Fun ways to reward your employees and incentivise your clients with sporting entertainment
Pay rise or greater flexibility of working hours? These are two of the most popular ways to reward your employees. However, is that all? According to a survey published by The Independent and carried out by Investors in People, one four employees in the UK feel unhappy in the workplace.
Considering 96% of dissatisfied customers won't ever tell you they're not happy but they will tell 15 friends and followers about their bad experience with your brand, keeping customers happy and reward them every once in a while should also become a priority.
There are many ways to make a change and turn that unhappy employee or dissatisfied client into a happy one, and it can all start with this upcoming summer of sports! Spontaneous sporting activities and entertainment can also help promote an upcoming summer party, a customer appreciation day or simply incentivise your loyal customers and hardworking employees for the sake of it.

Welcoming cheerleaders can lift anyone's spirit
A surprise cheerleading squad can be stationed at the entrance of your office or event to welcome employees and guests with fun cheers, chants and acrobatic dance routines. They can also cheer employees up whilst they work or reward clients for their continued loyalty with joyful chants! To top if off, these girls can even create a fan zone space at your office or venue where they can pose for photos. If you also want to create sport themed immersive environment, setting up a customisable photo booth branded with your country flag or club colours could be a great addition to your sports themed day!
