A study by Gallup showed that strong company culture leads to an average of 85% net profit increase over a five-year period.
Having studied the impact of Covid and the great resignation, Basejam realised that there is no better time for a carefully curated company retreat. We believe a retreat is much more than hiring a soulless conference hotel off the motorway.
Instead, the environment you choose should inspire, motivate and unite your team towards your company goals. There are plenty of handpicked places and spaces to choose from - each offering something unique, and all guaranteeing an unforgettable stay.
If the idea of organising a company retreat is a fairly new one, let’s get you started with the basics.
What is a company retreat?
A company retreat is a way to strengthen your team outside the four walls of an office, or the virtual walls of an online chatroom. It’s a chance to bring employees together so they feel connected with each other and the business.
There are no limits as to how big or small a company retreat can be - they can be designed for the leadership, as an onboarding trip or an annual event for the entire organisation. They can be day trips or extended stays in national and international venues - there really are no solid rules.
Company retreats are also often built around themes or goals—such as planning your next steps, honing the company mission, or celebrating big wins. This helps give the retreat a bit of direction.
Company retreats = Employee engagement 🚀
Company retreats can be an effective way to improve employee engagement, foster teamwork, and boost productivity. By investing in these types of activities, organisations can create a positive work culture that supports employee well-being and contributes to business success.
For instance, the social media tool Buffer organises company retreats as a way to build overall morale, given that they have a remote workforce and their team members are located across the world. According to the company, the retreats have led to increased collaboration and improved communication between team members.
