  • Hands Up Incentive Offers Team-Building Experiences Across the World

     
    POSTED May 10, 2017
     

Hands Up Incentives, a two-time winner of the IMEX Commitment to the Community Award and award-winning division of luxury volunteer tourism provider Hands Up Holidays, is finding new ways to give back to the community and the world. Now combining American and Canadian business travel with team-building itineraries in more than 30 destinations around the world, companies can engage in volunteer activities in countries such as China, Belize, Kenya, New Zealand and Bali.

"For companies to attract top talent today, they need to offer more than good salaries and benefits. I believe employees are looking to be part of corporate cultures that value altruism and sustainability," says Hands Up Incentives founder Christopher Hill. "Our trips are a chance for companies not only to engage staff in meaningful work that uplifts communities, but to reward employees, build cooperation between team members, and build loyalty to the company."

On the corporate team-building retreats and incentive trips, top company performers will experience adventure and relaxation, all while fulfilling corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) objectives. Trip activities and projects range from updating medical clinics and school classrooms to building disabled-access bathrooms in private homes.

Incorporating sustainability into all aspects of its trips, Hands Up Incentives provides eco-friendly accommodations and events. All hotels, resorts, restaurants and activities are carefully chosen for minimal carbon footprint. Free materials are also provided to help various departments within companies.

Graves Hospitality has proposed plans for a future development on the current site that will necessitate the immediate closing of Bradstreet Craftshouse in Minneapolis.

The restuarant opened in 2009 in the downtown Minneapolis Graves 601 Hotel. In 2014, Graves Hospitality sold the hotel and the Bradstreet concept was moved to the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis. It opened again in 2015. In approximately 14 months, Bradstreet will open within the InterContinental Hotel, which will be directly connected by skyway to Terminal One of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.
