This year a world-leading pharmaceutical company recognised 350 top performers with an annual incentive taking place across three continents. Ensuring they are giving back to the community is always a key part of their incentive events and therefore it was integral that Banks Sadler supported them in weaving a CSR element into the agenda.
Banks Sadler was tasked with sourcing activities in Mexico, Puglia and Vietnam, ensuring they could be delivered within a short lead time and that there would be no language barriers for the multi-nationality attended events.
In Vietnam, delegates handed out gifts and donated technology equipment to an under privileged school where guests had a chance to play with the children. In Italy, a charity that cares for adolescents with mental and physical disabilities was given a monetary donation that would fund a holiday camp for patients and their parents. Lastly, in Mexico, braille books and a monetary donation were given to DIF at a very special ceremony, an organisation that supports blind children and linked perfectly to the client’s major therapy area, Ophthalmology.
Across all three events Banks Sadler worked in conjunction with the hotel and/or ground agent to explore all possibilities and ensure a local charity was selected that was suited to the clients business, the location or associated with hotel staff members. This gave people a real sense of giving back, specifically to the destination they were visiting.
Each experience was very moving for the delegates and the entire event received outstanding feedback with 95% of responses saying it was excellent across every region.
