What is a company retreat?

A company retreat is an event where individual teams or an entire company gather with a focus on getting to know each other, forming new friendships, and breaking the daily routine. Sometimes there will be workshops and presentations, sometimes there won’t.

Company retreats are the perfect antidote to team issues such as poor communication, quiet-quitting and silo working.

At Basejam, we believe nature is the perfect setting for a company retreat. It gets people out of their comfort zone, and interrupts the same mental loops that can appear when working from home or at an office.

All of our venues are selected for company retreats, and we only list the best. We don’t list boring hotels.

How to choose a company retreat venue – what to look for

Location, location, location

The location you choose impacts everything from weather to activities to cost, so it’s a big one to consider.

Begin by thinking carefully about your goals for the retreat - does your team need a total refresh in the countryside, a big dose of vitamin D, or to get their heads down without distractions? Writing a list of concrete aims can help narrow down your options for the ideal retreat location.

On a practical note, make sure the location is convenient for all attendees - especially if you follow a hybrid working setup and your team is dispersed across different regions. An accessible location not too far from major cities or transportation hubs will make it easier for everyone to attend, and set the retreat off on the right foot.

Facilities

There are a few retreat-specific facilities that are essential to have when holding a successful company retreat. Ultimately you should look for venues that enable, rather than prohibit, the setup for your activities.

Some obvious examples of key facilities are breakout rooms, strong WiFi, event spaces and comfortable private bedrooms, but can also include things like coworking spaces, vegan catering options, presenting screens, and many more.

Budget

When it comes to company retreats, less can often be more. Here at Basejam, we reckon connection to nature should be at the top of your priorities list. As luck will have it, the benefits of the outdoors are completely free.

Basejam offers a curated selection of affordable company retreat venues without sacrificing quality or experience. You can explore venues that offer competitive pricing and unique facilities, ensuring you stay within your budget without compromising on the overall experience.
