These 3 secrets are the keys to executing a successful and fun off-site for your team.
1. Determine the goal
Communicating your goal to the team will produce a clearly defined reason for taking time away from work. The reasons could be:
Bring colleagues together that work remote
Celebrating a goal achieved
Emphasize the company’s desire to support “the whole person”
Encouraging retention of employees by treating them to a special event
Introduce new employees to the team
2. Engage with Immersive Activity
Getting participants out of the desk chair and engaging with each other can have lasting impact. Seeing team members in a new light fosters communication and relationship building outside the conference room.
3. Invest in Retention Tools
Taking time away from work should be meaningful and not a waste of time. Having an event where new skills are learned and can be transferred to home life, shows your team the company cares about them as people. It also enables the sharing of the experience long after the event is over.
