"Why a Corporate Retreat is Beneficial to Business"
A corporate retreat may sound frivolous to you. You know all about the financial side of your business; you have seen the numbers. Yet a corporate retreat can be both beneficial to business and to employee morale.
Corporate Retreat A corporate retreat should be seen as an investment in the life of the business.
According to an article in the Huffington Post titled Why Corporate Retreats Need to Make a Comeback, “Interest in corporate retreats is down nearly 90 percent from what it was in 2005,” yet a corporate retreat can be seen as a great investment in the life of a business. Unrestrained extravagance is one thing, but a well-planned, well-earned retreat is a business tool that should be used. A corporate retreat can bring an excitement back to work, and encourage employeesto be more effective in their day-to-day tasks.
John Rampton, author of this article, suggests that a corporate retreat will help employees build connections to one another. He writes, “This allows them to genuinely get to know each other better and develop authentic friendships based on shared experiences. This new-found common ground will also increase their attachment to your company as an organization, decreasing expensive turnover rates.”
A retreat can foster creativity in people that may otherwise feel like machines in the work environment. A creative workforce will result in a more productive workforce, one that can solve more problems individually rather than using management time.
A corporate retreat is also ideal for leadership development workshops, and for bringing in applicable motivational speakers.
