Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Blue Chip Holidays promote wellbeing initiatives such as running yoga in the office, having gym balls in the office, mindfulness taster sessions, neck and back massages, taster beauty treatments from thier guest concierge services, foodie treats from their team, ice creams when the weather is hot, and the flexibility to be allowed to watch special events such as The World Cup in the break room. In addition to these initiatives, Blue Chip Holidays offer classroom led 'Stress Management' courses, external support for team members if needed, and an online 'Stress Awareness' module. They encourage team members to bring pets in on adhoc basis and they even have an aromatherapy diffuser in the office.
My Team
My Team
Blue Chip Holidays run companywide business updates and smaller team huddles regularly in the middle of the office to encourage communication. They divert the phones and give everyone the opportunity to be there or dial into a conference number; they know its successful because team members come in on their days off. Blue Chip Holidays took the decision to collate their two offices into one and break down the walls to create a big open plan space to help communication and team work. Face to face communication is encouraged rather than phone calls and email.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Blue Chip Holidays actively support the RNLI as a charity that means a lot to their team, owners and guests. The majority of their properties are in a coastal location so Blue Chip Holidays support them both locally and nationally. They have put RNLI water safety information in the welcome packs in each coastal property and they also go out to help in their annual yellow welly collection campaign. Blue Chip Holidays also maintain regular contact with PLUSS and St Loyes Foundation, helping those with disabilities to get into employment. They have just hosted a 6 month paid temporary contract in their Finance department via the St. Loyes foundation. Also, the company have provided several apprenticeships over the last 5 years to enable young unemployed people to gain work experience and in most cases full time permanent employment with them.
