Off-site business meetings can provide an effective means to address many of today’s business challenges.
Taking an organization, team or customer group off-site for a few days of focused communication, collaboration, and networking in a well-designed environment can help address many of these challenges.
Trends such as social media, electronic communication, remote workforce and globalization increase the value of face-to-face interactions in developing relationships, trust and innovation within organizations.
Off-site meetings enable organizations to accomplish a number of objectives including:
- Improving employee engagement and motivation
- Expanding brand awareness and customer loyalty
- Communicating corporate strategy, vision and direction
- Training on new skills and products
- Recognition and appreciation of top performers
Off-site business meetings have a positive effect on our economy and job growth, as well. Industries including transportation, hospitality, dining, entertainment, and creative services create jobs at all levels in support of corporate meeting spend.
While new technologies have enhanced communication options, there’s nothing like being there: looking a person directly in the eyes, shaking a hand, asking for a commitment, feeling as if we’re all a part of a common experience.
