Corporate Concierge

For our corporate clients, we offer three types of services: Corporate Concierge for your employees, Corporate Concierge for your clients and Corporate Concierge services in your office.

You can purchase 5, 10 or 20 hour packages and allocate the hours as you wish. You may choose to offer them to your employees or customers, or use them as monthly incentives.

And the bonus for you? With every package you purchase, you receive up to four hours a month of Concierge/Lifestyle Assistance FREE!

 

Corporate Concierge for your employees

Offering your employees the services of a Concierge/Personal Assistant is a great way to let them know you appreciate them.

It will pay for itself in no time by boosting morale and increasing productivity. While they’re concentrating on work, they’ll have their own personal assistant running around for them.

If you’re serious about staff retention, reducing absenteeism and creating a great culture in your business, then this could be the answer you’re looking for.

 

Corporate Concierge for your clients

When you want to go the extra mile to impress your clients, call on Running In Heels to deliver personalised, individual service that sets you apart from your competition.

Imagine how impressed your clients would be if we personally delivered them a gift or greeted them at the airport upon arrival in Adelaide. By outsourcing your VIP services, you'll be adding value to your business and making a statement that says, "we care".

 

Corporate Concierge in your office

Sometimes, there are tasks that fall outside the normal job description of your employees. When this happens, you can always turn to Running In Heels. After years in the corporate sector, we know the time-consuming jobs that really need to be outsourced. Below are a few examples of how we can help you:

  • In-house corporate lunches or events – We can handle every detail from organising the food and drinks, setting up, cleaning up and being on hand to attend to each detail throughout the event
  • Gift buying – We can source corporate, client or staff gifts and offer a wrapping service as well as help with delivery or postage
  • New staff welcoming and orienteering – From sourcing rental accommodation, to meeting them at the airport – what a fantastic start to their time with your company. See our Welcoming/Real Estate/Relocation Services/Holiday Homes menu for more information
  • Office relocation – With comprehensive experience in office relocation and opening new business premises, we can assist in all your moving requirements
  • Professional office organising – Is your business premises a mess? Are you too busy managing the day-to-day requirements and need help getting everything in shape? We are hard-working, dynamic organisers who can implement systems, save space and create ideal working environments
