Pittsburg, PA Employee Retreat Tips:

While everyone sits about and listens, the session leader should not spend the entire time talking at them. Involve the entire group: Make the meeting into a brainstorming session, a game, or a workshop. Anyone on the team can come up with brilliant ideas, and it can help to bring in new perspectives to tackle reoccurring problems. Even if they work in a different department, the employee retreat should be a secure environment where everyone feels comfortable sharing their thoughts.

Employee Retreat Ideas

Ask your CEO or Executive Director an AMA (Ask Me Anything).

Not every CEO or Executive Director will agree to do this, but if they do, it says a lot. Employees put anonymous questions in a bowl throughout the day, and at the end of the day, everyone takes their favorite drink while our CEO pulls the questions out of the bowl and answers them. We’ve had inquiries about anything from wages to starting a family to what color is your favorite. The CEO can always “pass” on a subject if he does not feel comfortable addressing it, although this is rarely done (re: maybe once in the last three years). Transparency like this fosters confidence in the leadership.

Create a theme for your staff retreat.

What do you hope to achieve during your team retreat? A theme for your staff retreat reminds everyone of the purpose of your time together. Employees will be able to design their sessions around this subject as well.

Incorporate free time into your schedule.

You’ll be spending a lot of time chatting about work with each other. Make sure to provide breaks and some free time in the plan so that employees may recharge as needed.

Make good use of your time.

There will be a lot to cover in a short amount of time, so make the most of it. Have someone take notes during each session, and if you’re running out of time, don’t be afraid to bookmark a conversation. Following up on and organizing additional talks after the retreat is the responsibility of the session leader. Make certain that the time you spend brainstorming fresh ideas isn’t squandered. After the staff retreat, someone should be in charge of putting the changes into action, whether it’s the session leader or another employee.

There should be a buzz of enthusiasm at the end of your employee retreat, with fresh energy and devotion to the organization’s goal.
