More than one in three office workers in the UK have admitted to finding their work away days boring, with over a third confessing they actually dread them, according to our new statistics. 

Worryingly, more than one in nine office workers (12%) have even said that they find their away days stressful because it’s a day out of the office. 

The poll of 2,000 UK office workers found more than two-fifths (42%) of employees said they thought doing something more unusual would make a good company away day, and over 40% added they would like to do something exciting.

Fundraise for us

If you are thinking of ideas to try and make your work away days more exciting, why not take on a tandem skydive and raise funds for us

It would be a memorable day for all with communication and relationship building key. 

The training and skydive is completed on the same day and we have 20 drop locations throughout England, Scotland and Wales – and if you and your colleagues raise over £400 each in fundraising, you can all jump for free. 

You jump harnessed to a professional British Parachute Association Instructor and leave the plane at over 10,000ft and free fall at around 120mph for 45-50 seconds. 

Events Project Manager, Beck Bayram, said: "Skydiving is a fantastic way to do something unforgettable to raise essential funds to help us continue our vital research, which could create a better life for so many. Not only will it be the thrill of a lifetime, but you will be helping to save lives too."
