Floating for business
Away days for relaxation and productivity
Workplaces are often hectic and full of distractions.
It can be hard to focus while noise and activity are going on all around you.
Sometimes you need to get away from the daily minutiae to be able to see the bigger picture.
A change of scene with some peace and quiet could be just what you need to recharge your business batteries.
Many businesses use ‘away days’ to get the team out of the workplace.
Some away days can be simply a chance to work on strategic plans in a quieter environment.
Others may be team-bonding experiences, with the team trying something new and helping each other get through challenges.
What if you could combine all these things:
Try a new experience
Form new bonds among the team as a result
And get the perspective you need to focus on your particular business problem / idea as well?
You could hire Float in the Forest for a few hours, enabling your team to experience the benefits of floatation for themselves, in combination with a unique brainstorming opportunity.
The floatation pod is a powerful and flexible tool.
On the one hand it can be used to switch off the mind, but conversely it is also the ideal environment to focus on specific ideas or challenges in the absence of distractions.
You can use the time while floating to really get to grips with a problem or idea and view it from a new perspective.
It can also create that space for you to connect to your creative source to find novel solutions.
As this article explains so well, taking some time to relax the body can boost productivity.
You may find you discover hidden depths when you unravel your employees’ true potential.
You just come along with the problems or ideas you’d like to explore, and we will provide you with the space to find inspiration.
Floating may not be for everyone; see our FAQ page for some useful questions and common concerns.
You may choose to combine your floating business package with other holistic treatments to cater for everyone’s interests.
If you’d like to combine floating with an outdoor activity, we can help you to arrange this too.
If you have time left after your float business package you could go for a walk amongst the trees, and make the most of the fantastic natural landscapes of the Forest of Dean; we can help you find some great walking routes.
We’re looking forward to working with you to tailor a programme to the needs of your business.
The business floatation package offers a win-win for your business and your people.

Wellbeing in business
It is well known that stress can lead to a wide range of health problems.
Experts suggest that millions of pounds are lost by businesses around the country due to absenteeism, and ‘presenteeism’ – when employees are at work but not operating at optimum levels.
Public Health England has issued a toolkit for employers, which states that around 200,000 working days are lost due to insufficient sleep, representing an annual cost to businesses of around £30bn.
Many people are overworking and end up having to take time off due to stress. HSE statistics show that in 2016/17, 526,000 workers were suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety (new or long-standing), and 12.5 million working days were lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in the same period.
With these problems apparently on the rise, an increasing number of employers are seeing the advantage of taking steps to look after their employees’ health and wellbeing.
Your employees are the most important resource your business has, so it makes absolute sense to look after them from the point of view of the sustainability of your business, as well as their welfare.
Providing floatation membership could be the ideal way to show your key employees that you care, keep them happy, and help look after their physical and mental health too.
From just £40 per month floatation memberships offer an excellent return on investment through improving productivity, reduced sick days, and reduced recruitment costs thanks to enhanced staff retention.
