What to Look For in a Corporate Retreat  


More and more companies are purchasing corporate retreats to provide an escape from the busy, every day lives for their clients, employees and their families.  These retreats are a great way to discuss business in a laid back setting, team-build to improve employee morale and cohesiveness, or simply relax and unwind.  It also provides a competitive edge as employees consider company perks along with their employment package.

Many organizations are getting back to nature with the rustic, Thoreau-esque adventures. They are purchasing acres of land filled with lakes and streams, worn paths, and a breathtaking landscape that is a haven for overstimulated, stressed employees in place of office and conference room space.

With acres of land for hunting, fishing, bird watching, horseback riding, meditating, and so many endless options, these retreats are truly an escape. Even several hundred acres situated just outside of town can be just what the doctor ordered. In a society where stress has reached epidemic proportions and the workplace is more competitive than ever, having the ability to slip away and get lost in your own little piece of solitude is a gift you can give your employees again and again.

It gives them a place that silences the noise and allows peace and serenity to flood in.
