Are you in charge of planning your company’s corporate retreat? With so many factors to consider for your group, there are probably several questions about where to go, what to do, and how to keep your employees well-fed and well-entertained while accomplishing the specific goals for the retreat. The secret to having a corporate retreat that brings your team together and strengthens your company is all in the location.
- Is the venue within driving distance of your company? A venue closer to the office will help the bottom line budget for the retreat while hours spent traveling might keep you from all of the activities and team-building efforts that are the crux of your corporate retreat. If the retreat is too close, however, your employees might be tempted to go home or leave early. Further, they may feel as if the familiarity of the area didn’t provide them with a sense of “being away from it all” like they might have hoped.
- What does the venue offer in terms of meeting space and catering? Your chosen venue should have ample room for not only the whole team but also breakout spaces suitable for smaller group projects and meetings. The staff able should be able to keep your group well-fed so that your whole team can stay focused during meeting times. Make sure the venue has technical help on call for audio-visual or technological needs. You’ll also appreciate an experienced helper as your retreat liaison, working to proactively plan for the needs of your group.
- What does the venue offer in terms of attractions and amenities? Because your employees won’t be in meetings or team-building activities around the clock during your retreat, make sure the place you choose has plenty of options for fun and relaxation, both on-site and in the surrounding area. You’re pulling your employees away from their day-to-day lives; make sure they are compensated by having fun options, both indoors and out. Also, be sure to give them a place to actually retreat, have some time to relax and recharge.
