How often does your business get away from the stressful atmosphere of the workplace? Corporate retreats allow your team to escape to a different environment, to regroup and rediscover their working passion. Results have proven that stress levels can significantly lower, enhancing effectiveness and strengthening internal bonds.
If you are thinking of organising a corporate retreat, take a look at some of our events team’s top tips.
Identify the goal
Before you begin the planning process, you’ll need to identify the motivation and goal behind the resort. Do the majority of your team have low morale and need revitalising, or perhaps they have a lack of creativity and their ideas have gone stale? You can use your goal to choose the ideal resort.
Cater for everyone
Each member of your team has a different personality and you’ll probably find a mix of introverts and extroverts within your group. A selection of them will undoubtedly dread the event, fearing the thought of singing Kumbaya in a lost forest. Cater the resort and each activity to ensure everyone feels comfortable and relaxed.
Picking your resort
A lot of thought will need to go into the type of resort you are going to choose, use your goal to find the perfect venue suitable for everyone. You can find some examples below:
- Health and wellness spa resort
- Team building adventure course
- Group hiking
- Camping experience
- Luxury corporate resort
Time to Indulge
Keep your team informed about what they will be doing throughout the day and of course, get them prepared for some of the team building challenges ahead. After a long day of canoeing, climbing or hiking, amaze your team with a welcome surprise. Maybe a rejuvenating pamper experience or perhaps a feast of food, remembering to cater for the veggies, vegans and non-dairies!
