Colt Technology Services is taking 45 top performers and their partners to Oman next week as part of its Colt Inner Circle reward and recognition scheme.
The five-day incentive is being delivered by agency aca live, which has been working with Colt since being added to its roster in 2012.
It will include activities such as a Muscat city tour, Wadi tour, dune bashing and dolphin watching, as well as a CSR activity. Working in conjunction with the Shangri La Resort Hotel where the group are staying, participants will help design and create a garden/reading area in one of the local schools.
Colt Technology Services chose Oman from a list of five destinations presented by aca live, with previous destinations including India, South Africa, St Petersburg, Barbados, Iceland and Tanzania.
"We aim to select a different and interesting destination each year for our top contributors. Because we have a range of nationalities and cultures working at Colt, we also try to find a destination that will suit varied tastes," says Colt employee engagement and recognition manager Jason Sullivan.
"Location is also important as we have employees in Europe and India, and try to minimise travel for all. Oman fits the brief in all these areas, as it’s relatively unexplored and provides a rich culture."
Colt Inner Circle is a year-long programme that incorporates individual nominations for non-sales employees who go above and beyond in their role and for sales employees who are eligible through their sales league tables.
