There are very different considerations for companies buying a corporate pass to an attraction compared to an individual deciding if it is worth it. Rather than being fixated on the cost, corporate passes serve as an employee perk.
It gives your staff a sense of assurance that you encourage them to take time off to spend with their families, without them having to fork out too much money while visiting a local attraction. This is especially relevant in our current post-pandemic situation when employees finally get the chance to enjoy quality time with their families outdoors .
Corporate passes that companies can purchase for their employees range from popular local attractions to indoor activities, as well as F&B discounts and discounts on entry fees. Here are some corporate memberships companies can consider getting for your employees.
