Arranging a meeting or corporate retreat away form the office can be a good way to reinforce company culture. It doesn’t have to be the normal cliché, such as a trust fall or climbing a rope. You want your colleagues to have the opportunity to develop as a team.
It Allows the Sharing of Ideas
A offsite meeting is allows for everybody to feel more relaxed and in turn will allow and environment where anyone can share ideas. Every company would like to work as one team rather than individual. A corporate retreat will provide an environment where they don’t feel like they’re going to be judged in a negative way.
A good offsite meeting can be of benefit to the company because people are able to build confidence and develop a better working relationship with their colleagues.
Getting to know your colleagues.
Your company is all about people. Without people, it doesn’t exist.
On a day to day basis we might not interact with every one of our colleagues and therefore many companies require and offsite retreat so everyone can come together.
Also in many organisations, the chances are that the interns or graduates whom have just started with the company don’t come into contact with the people at the top very often. An corporate retreat serves as a time where people who don’t normally speak can connect. This can lead to a closer and more connected company.
Make People Feel Appreciated
A positive working environment only happens when employees feel like they’re being appreciated and respected for what they do. It is a common misconception that a company retreat will involve the normal and sometime awkward “Team Building” but that-really doesn’t have to be the case. The key to a successful corporate retreat is location. Bring your employees to a beautiful house in the glorious Herefordshire countryside where they can relax, have fun, enjoy the fresh air and really develop as a team.
“What an amazing venue. We were in-love with Parkfields when we first visited to investigate holding our Annual Company Conference there. Simon and Amy were amazing on that day and we booked straight away. Well, now that we have just completed the conference, we are blown away. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Simon, Amy and all the staff are wonderful, kind and considerate. No request is too small, they are accommodating, the food is superb (all locally sourced) and the rooms and facilities are immaculate. We have already re-booked for 2019 and cannot recommend highly enough as a conference venue. We would equally have no hesitation in recommending for any function and are even considering getting a group of our friends and family together for an absolute chill-out weekend”
