So let’s have a closer look at those benefits which typically occur during and after an off-site meeting or event. First of all, a change of scenery can cause innovation and creativity to speed up. A new environment triggers a new way of looking at things, and thus enhances new ideas and solutions. Secondly, a new environment pushes team members to interact in a more informal way, transcending the usual flow of the communication hierarchy. Employees value this benefit as a sense of community building. Especially unusual and unique locations are essential to ‘break the ice’ and will have your team talking about it, even days after.
Overall, off-site meetings are perfect to escape from the daily office stress, boost creativity and get to know your colleagues a bit better. Doesn’t this sound like a great investment? The only challenge left here is to find the right location that fits the need of your team, goals and type of off-site meeting. Whether it might be a training or workshop, a teambuilding or a day full of meetings.
