Business Retreat in Pennsylvania PA

What distinguishes a corporate retreat from a business meeting?

For the participants, a business retreat focuses on high-level strategy with lots of “white-space time”. The goal of a retreat is to get high-level thinkers away from their daily routines and into an intimate setting where they can truly unleash their creative thinking. Inspire more strategic thinking with a more relaxed environment, outdoor time, informal roundtables, guided walks, etc. A business meeting is usually quite regimented and focused on a specific department. We’ve seen this in many meetings where people are more interested in listening than engaging.

A retreat is a smaller meeting held in a unique location, such as a dude ranch or an immersive property, where people can naturally network and bond. Meeting space and audio-visual support to accommodate the meeting’s size and scope are usually available at hotels near airports. A business meeting is focused on content, but a retreat is focused on group experience.

For us, the primary distinction is that a retreat offers more activities and excursions outside of the business meeting. There are often components of renewal or relaxation.  A business meeting focuses on a company’s current requirements or a specific topic. In order to achieve goals, a corporate retreat promotes team development, reflection, and introspection.

The Poconos’ Natural Beauty Is an Escape From Work

The location you choose impacts your company retreat, and there is no better place than Pocono Valley with 350 private acres in the heart of the Poconos. The destination must feel like a getaway — not just another office. Pocono Valley is a great place for your employees to relax. They will not feel like they are on a business trip, but rather a holiday.

Adventure Team-Building Activities in the Mountains

Company retreat planners know that arranging an event involves many factors. There will be meetings and training, but there should also be fun team-building activities. Scavenger hunts, boat construction, rock climbing, hiking, and ziplining are all popular team-building activities in the Poconos. Your staff will appreciate the opportunity to participate in activities and trips not available elsewhere.

Why Have a Business Retreat in Pennsylvania PA?

Find a place that allows you to focus on the task at hand while being close to something interesting to do during a break or evening. The natural beauty and solitude of the Poconos is the perfect setting for a business retreat.

Assimilate meeting objectives with destination experiences. In addition to learning/business objectives, attendees can participate in activities that allow them to cooperate, communicate, and solve problems together. Engaging the guests and putting them in scenarios together builds a better business culture and fosters innovation and creativity.

Business Retreats Help People Focus

Taking regular breaks and holidays has been shown to boost overall productivity. Your company will benefit from a new section dedicated to a single project or activity. Employees are deeply committed to the cause. More attention means more output.

In a non-office setting, an employee retreat can provide engaging team building activities. Take your team to an office Olympics or a ropes course to build trust. Your team will benefit from new environments and technologies when working offsite.

According to a Harvard Business Review study, coworkers that interact openly with one another work more effectively and perform better overall. As a result, the offsite promotes collaboration. A zoo picnic or a scavenger hunt in your city’s most famous museum will help your team bond. The experience of being in a new place and working together makes the team stronger. Employee Retreats allow your company to reconnect in a highly technical and digital world. Do you have many locations? Your team will feel more connected if you work on a project in person rather than via video conference. They’ll also work better together toward a single goal..
