As the end of the year draws near, it's the perfect time to celebrate the hard work of your team and take stock of their accomplishments. A winter retreat is a great way to gather everyone together to plan for the new year and have a little fun! Here are some ideas to keep in mind as you plan your winter team meeting.
An end of the year retreat gives your entire team the opportunity to connect outside of the office, and in some cases beyond the computer screen. If your organization has in person and remote employees, bringing everyone together in the same place can enhance the conversations you have planned, and provide an outlet for workers to get to know one another better.
Work & Play
As you evaluate your accomplishments for the year as a team and plan for the year to come, be sure to build in time for some fun. While the focus of your retreat should be on gathering input from your employees on what worked and what can be improved upon, it should also be an opportunity to strengthen connections between team members. At The Otesaga, we offer a variety of group activities that are perfect for team bonding, including wine tasting sessions, yoga, and more. For something a little more active, the nearby Clark Sports Center has an indoor rock climbing facility, as well as group fitness studios that will give everyone a break from sitting in a meeting room.
If you're ready to plan your end of the year meeting, or thinking of kicking off the new year with a retreat, The Otesaga offers a serene lakeside space for your team to celebrate, relax, and focus on what's to come.
