Workplace wellbeing with Marttinen

How are you? Bring your colleagues or your personnel with you and take the time to the wellbeing! Healthy entrepreneur and personnel are a company’s most important resource. Wellbeing at work affects an organisation’s competitiveness, financial results and reputation.

Organise a memorable company retreat day with pre-made packages with various themes for different kinds of groups designed by a professional instructor. The packages also include material for independent activities. The event can also be tailor-made to meet your wishes.

The company retreat day can also include the group’s own programme, such as a personnel meeting or a planning day. If you would like to stay for a longer time, we recommend spending a social evening in the Marttinen Old Vicarage or in the Vihta Sauna or enjoying a tasty dinner in the Antintalo House restaurant which opens on request. After the social night, you can book accommodation in the pleasant log cabins.
