COVID-19 has forced us to rethink how we interact with one another, specifically by shifting the emphasis to digital screens so that we can work from home. However. Employees are increasingly experiencing burnout and exhaustion from constant video conferencing, a phenomenon that’s been dubbed “Zoom fatigue.”
Arranging a meeting or corporate retreat for employees that have had to adapt to working from home can be a good way to reinforce company culture after months of home working. It doesn’t have to be the normal cliché, such as a trust fall or climbing a rope. Now is the time that you need your colleagues to work together again and develop as a team.
It Allows the Sharing of Ideas
A corporate retreat allows for everybody to feel more relaxed and in turn will create an environment where anyone can share ideas. Businesses have had to adapt very quickly to the ‘new normal’ and every company would like to work as one team rather than individual. A corporate retreat will also 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. A 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
2020 has quite possibly been the most challenging year in modern times and your team have shown the resilience required to get your company through such unprecedented circumstances. Now is the time to make each and everyone of them appreciated for what they do. A positive working environment only happens when employees feel like they’re being appreciated and respected. 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.
Why not consider getting your bubble of colleagues together to sustain the success of your company
