Corporate Experiences - Employee Reward Schemes

Great days out or team-building experiences for businesses small and large!

Looking for something a little different for your next company day out or team building event? Rather bored of race days, go-karting and sporting events?

Why not really inspire your colleagues with a day learning the ancient art of hedge-laying, a trip out on the Solent on a sailing boat (no experience required), a day on a working New Forest Farm, an escorted wildlife walk, or a morning learning circus skills?

Based in the heart of this amazing county, the Experience Hampshire team will work with you to build the perfect day for you and your team, whether you are looking to reward colleagues for some great work, inspire team work in your company, or to take some of your favourite clients out for a fun day to thank them for their loyalty.

There is no fee for our service (our commissions are earned from our Partners) and as 'local experts', we like to think that we can provide a host of ideas, whatever your request.

We work with over 80 Partners across the county who all offer fun, unusual and inspiring activities and experiences, many of which have a low carbon footprint.

We can either create a single team event for a group of any size, or make our experiences available to your team to book individually as rewards. What better way to honour the loyalty and hard work of your own staff, than to offer them a voucher each year to use on this site? They can choose from a session of forest bathing (proven to reduce stress hormone production, improve feelings of happiness and free up creativity), to learn a new skill such as paddle boarding or pottery, or to push boundaries by learning to paraglide.

Inspire your team and support local businesses at the same time - challenge us to help you create the perfect team day out, or colleague reward programme!

A few of our experiences that we think might particularly appeal to corporate groups:

Employee Reward Schemes

We can enhance your employee reward scheme with vouchers to be used for Hampshire based experiences!

Rewarding your employees is about more than giving them just cash payments. A well thought out reward structure can help you get the best out of your colleagues, improves staff retention, builds a strong company culture and, in turn, helps drive your business forward.

A reward scheme that is valued by your team can have a big influence on your colleague’s general well-being, and show that you, as their employer, are on their side.

At Experience Hampshire, we spend a great deal of our time searching for unusual experiences across the county, most of which are run by small businesses who want to let more people know about the amazing activities and courses that they offer. We bring this eclectic mix of experiences together in one place to showcase them to those looking for fun and inspiring things to do.

By offering your team Experience Hampshire vouchers as a reward, you are not only giving them access to a choice nearly 200 local experiences to enjoy, but you are also helping support the Hampshire-based businesses that organise these activities. Your staff get to spend their reward voucher to do something fun or inspiring (or both!) and the voucher spend helps support local Hampshire businesses. In addition, since most of our experiences have a low carbon footprint, you are helping protect our local environment.

Employee reward voucher schemes have traditionally been about the opportunity for the recipient to buy physical things, or to take part in experiences further afield – race track experiences or spa days. Experience Hampshire vouchers offer access to a host of local, unusual, quite often quirky and mind-pleasing experiences. An opportunity to get creative on a pottery experience, to relax forest bathing, to challenge oneself working in a busy restaurant kitchen, to learn new skills on a blacksmith course, to learn more about local nature on a guided wildlife walk, or to feel the wind in your hair driving around the New Forest in a vintage car.

We’re offering a new perspective on employee rewards and we’d love to talk to you about helping reward and inspire your team.

• Experience Hampshire vouchers are available as a reward scheme, incentives, birthday or work anniversary gifts

• Vouchers are available for any value

• Vouchers are redeemed easily on our website – – against nearly 200 experiences

• Our experiences tend to be more unusual and interesting – a break from the more traditional voucher offerings

• All experiences featured on our site take place in Hampshire

• Giving Experience Hampshire vouchers to your staff helps support the 90 or so small local businesses who feature on our site

• Many of our experiences have a very low carbon footprint

• Many of our feature experiences involve learning a new skill, an element of mindfulness, or pushing physical boundaries and lots involve fresh air and exploring the outdoor environment!

• Our business is Hampshire-based and run by real local people who all love Hampshire

• There is no cost of any kind to the employer, other than the cost of the vouchers that you might choose to buy

• There is no complicated sign-up process or subscription – you just buy the vouchers that you need for your own company’s reward scheme whenever you need them

"The event that you organised for us was superb. Thank you" A happy Experience Hampshire customer

"Booking our team building afternoon with and through Experience Hampshire was a very easy process. They have been informative and most helpful, even when ‘last minute’, we decided that we would like a coconut shy on site! One of their team joined us for the afternoon to help make sure that we were all having an enjoyable time – a very professional service" - Winchester Architect's Firm
