Make your next corporate retreat memorable with these activities.
A corporate retreat is a fantastic way to assemble your team in one location for collaboration and camaraderie. Once the official business is done, it’s a great idea to plan some fun off-hours activities to relax and unwind after a long day of teambuilding.
Some great ideas of activities to include while traveling for work are:
- Wine, beer, and spirits tastings
- Enjoy the great outdoors
- City tours
- Sporting events
- Trivia night
- Tailored activities
Keep reading to learn how to incorporate these activities into your next corporate retreat or trip!
Wine, beer, and spirits tastings
There are few activities more relaxing than a well-deserved beverage after a day of work. Here’s a great opportunity to elevate the experience with a wine, beer, or spirit (or all three!) tasting or tour. Your employees can relax and unwind while enjoying some top-shelf liquors and learn a little something about the fermenting process.
Enjoy the great outdoors
Let’s face it — a conference room is no match for the fresh air of the great outdoors. Have your employees burn off some energy with a round of golf, a hike or, for the more adventurous, ziplining or mountain biking. If you’re looking to improve teamwork in your organization, challenge your employees to a friendly race or competition. Winners get next Friday off!
Take some time to explore the city you’re visiting and organize a tour — bonus points if you can do the tour by bike or on a boat. Even if your retreat is in your home city, a guided tour is a great way to learn more about your hometown.
See some professional-level teamwork in action and take in a sporting event. Whether it’s a baseball, hockey, basketball, or baseball game, we can all learn something from the pros. Even if not everyone is a sports fan, everyone certainly loves stadium snack food!
If this sounds like it’d be a hit with your team, check out our lineup of sporting event travel packages perfect for large corporate groups!
Many bars and restaurants host trivia nights — see if there are any in the city you’re visiting. Or, better yet, set up a private trivia night for your employees and inspire a little friendly competition between the teams.
No one knows your company and your employees quite like you do, so plan a few activities specially tailored to their interests. Schedule a reservation at a high-end restaurant for the foodies in your group, or organize a yoga class for the yogis. Your employees will surely appreciate your willingness to set up activities you know they’ll enjoy!
