Glider Barcelona Trip

Glider’s team has been enjoying team building and some well-deserved fun in the sun on its company away day to Barcelona, Spain.

Following all of their success this month, Team Glider have been celebrating their hard work in style with an exciting company trip to Barcelona. Just one day after the CABE (Chartered Association of Building Engineers) Awards, where Glider was the recipient of the Digital Transformation Award, the team boarded a plane to enjoy some well-earned time away from work.

Glider recognises that behind every successful company is a great team, which is why the company thinks of exciting ways to reward its employees for their efforts. Team Glider took an entertaining trip to the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia, where everyone bonded as a team, experienced Spanish culture and shared plenty of memorable moments and laughs.

On the first day oBarcelonaf the trip, the team arrived around midday in time to enjoy a beautiful three-course meal on the marina, followed by an eventful team GPS tablet challenge and an afternoon of exploration. The day was topped off with a fabulous  Flamenco dinner and show in the evening. On Saturday, the team shared breakfast together, before transferring to the marina for a Catamaran Boat Cruise where they took in the breathtaking vistas of the Mediterranean sea. After enjoying canapes and lunch onboard, they were able to discover the Catamaran Docks before returning home.

Glider prides itself on being a progressive company – not just in terms of technical innovation, but also in its company culture. Glider is a fully remote business, giving its employees the flexibility to work from home. The team agrees that this makes the time they share out of office all the more meaningful. Additionally, memorable work trips such as this ensure that the team make personal connections that may not necessarily be made when working in an office.

Nick Hutchinson, Managing Director of Glider, commented: “At Glider, we definitely believe in working hard and playing hard, which is why we have taken this two-day trip together. We run a completely remote business, which makes times like these even more precious.”

Glider acknowledges the importance of a healthy work-life balance, which is why the company offers its employees competitive advantages such as enjoyable recreational experiences and remote working. Home working is part of Glider’s environmental policy, as well as being instrumental in its actions as a socially responsible business, as Glider’s employees’ health and wellbeing is at the very top of its priority list.
