Online PR News – 28-July-2009 – – A new service is being launched that is set to keep businesses in business with the help of Government funding. This week a UK based Team Building company, Accolade Corporate Events, has introduced a package that can improve business skills aimed at Small to Medium Enterprises. The new team building packages are office based, which cuts costs through eliminating the need to hire a venue. Coupled with the Train to Gain scheme, which offers SME's up to £1,000 towards training, the new package is set for success as are the businesses that take part.

The Train to Gain scheme has been introduced to improve work based skills through training and development. Providing the company applying meets the criteria set for the funding application, Accolade are able to provide an office based package that offers development training through fun and effective team building.

Mandy Applegate, the Creative Director at Accolade says, "The new office based packages are proving popular with companies who want to invest in the skills of their staff, but are on a limited budget. Our aim is to offer team building packages that help improve skills and thereby improve the chances of staying in business through this difficult time."

The money saving option offered by Accolade is hoped to help companies keep motivated and ultimately stay in business, as is the Train to Gain scheme. The packages which can be held outside working hours or during lunch breaks offer a training alternative that doesn't interrupt normal working operations, thereby minimising loss through downtime.
