A caravan site in Shropshire is launching a new socially distanced team building service to help employees working from home to tackle loneliness and isolation.
Love2Stay to help colleagues reconnect with each other in the wake of remote working due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The 22-acre site on the outskirts of Shrewsbury is home to 122 touring pitches, as well as a purpose-built assault course, activity lake and business facilities.
There is plenty of space for social distancing to be observed and the team behind the corporate away days has implemented procedures to ensure visitors are safe in light of the COVID-19 threat.
Chris Skitt, park manager at Love2Stay said: "Employers have an important role to play in helping to develop the social confidence of their employees, especially given the challenging circumstances of the past six months.
"While meetings and conferences are slowly returning, we expect proximity-based team building will take longer. We've designed new approaches, and also modified existing ones to enable groups to participate in quality activities whilst observing social distance protocols."
He added that the beautifully-designed resort with its outdoor activities represents the perfect place to reconnect with colleagues, have some fun and achieve meaningful outcomes.
It comes after Totaljobs found 46 per cent of the UK workforce have felt lonely during lockdown and 41 per cent have seen a negative impact on their sleeping habits.
A change of scenery, getting out into the countryside and completing tasks with colleagues could help staff to reboot ahead of autumn.
Love2Stay is a purpose-built site that opened to the public close to the border with Wales in 2017. Each extra-wide touring pitch is equipped with a fresh water supply, waste disposal point and a light.
