Many people assume a company retreat must happen off-site. Not true: An on-site retreat is a cost-effective option. You won’t have to rent space and can probably save on locally catered food and bulk beverages. But employees often struggle to focus and find inspiration in-house. Off-site events can be a welcome and exciting change of pace. When planning one, be ready to negotiate. Get multiple quotes and compare prices for space, food and beverages, and guest rooms if you’ll need them. Don’t be shy about asking for discounts. Contact us for more ideas and info.
