Why organize a team-building retreat?
Team-building retreats bridge the gap between working towards company goals and bonding. This type of event usually brings part of the company or the entire group offsite, often outside of the city.
Working remotely or in hybrid mode has increased the need for teams to gather outside of the workday hustle and focus on getting to know each other and bonding. In such retreats, the team can work together through a whole range of team-building activities, games, icebreakers, and exercises.
The goal of a team building retreat can be as simple as getting to know the team members you work with on a personal level. Team building retreats promote communication not only within teams, but also between teams from different departments. These retreats are a great way to ease tensions between team members. Use this opportunity to align your employees with your company culture or motivate them to improve the team's / company's results.
Typically, a team-building retreat involves the whole office. It’s organized twice a year and lasts for two to three days each time. Some companies go offsite for the whole week and include some working sessions in between. It depends largely on your budget, work schedule and goals for the retreat.
What is the goal of the team-building retreat?
There is no unique recipe for team-building retreats as the needs differ from company to company. Here are some areas where your company might focus on:
- Team communication and collaboration
- Innovation and optimization
- Bonding within teams
- Resolving tensions between team members
- Identifying the ideal work environment and how to build it together
Sample agenda for a team-building retreat
First steps before planning the agenda are 1) choosing the location and 2) defining the budget. This will give you some ideas about the activities that are available during the event. Also, starting with the location will save you a lot of stress throughout the process.
Once you have your location, here’s what a three-day retreat might include.
Day 1: Arrive in the afternoon. Start with a fun ice breaker game. These games ease everyone into the retreat. It’s a good way to introduce everyone.
Day 2: Spend the morning on a half-day workshop solving a work-related problem. Or, spend the morning on a company culture/vision presentation. Other companies use this time to communicate company results. This day should be dedicated to the business. In the afternoon, have a team dinner. Smaller teams enjoy cooking together.
Day 3: On the third day, have fun! If you’re in a city, go on a scavenger hunt or explore on bikes. If you’re near a beach, go surfing or kayaking. Spend time bonding in your environment.
Day 4: Have breakfast together and depart.
