Fall Corporate Retreat Ideas
Corporate retreats are a vital tool for bringing staff members together for team-building, team-bonding, and work-related projects in a casual atmosphere. Such retreats allow companies to encourage connections among employees whose work environment has been upended during the past two years, from temporary closures to remote or hybrid work to excessive employee turnover. Those changes upset the balance businesses need to operate smoothly, and companies are seeking ways to restore that balance and strengthen their core. A corporate retreat can work to bring balance and cohesion back to the workplace.
In addition to holding all-inclusive and department meetings to discuss goals and future plans, retreats that have the longest-lasting effects offer attendees time for group fun and physical activity as well as down time to decompress.
If you’re planning a team building or team bonding corporate retreat this fall, we have some exciting ideas for you!
We at On Purpose Adventures, based in Charleston SC, offer team building activities for work. We specialize in creating truly unique and unforgettable adventures, adventures that have meaningful purposes all around the world. That may involve bonding with coworkers or increasing teamwork and communication.
We offer virtual, hybrid and in-person options to meet each company’s needs, and we can bring our adventures to you. Check out this partial list:
1. Combat Archery – also called archery tag, played with foam-tipped arrows for safety and Nerf-style fun
2. Competitive Scavenger Hunts – featuring local history & trivia
3. Table Top Adventures (Game) – indoor offerings great for inclement weather and avoiding additional travel expenses of getting a team to a certain location. Options include escape & riddle games and indoor scavenger hunts no matter the location of the participants.
4. Kayak Tours – exploring the waterway for wildlife, birds, and scenic autumn elements with coworkers
5. Biking Tours – pedaling along a bike path to explore fall color with coworkers
6. Hiking Tours, and more
Multiple options can be scheduled for one day, a weekend, or longer. As an example, here is a possible schedule for a group:
Arrival Day: Welcome reception with ice breaker game followed by dinner
Day 2: Breakfast, followed by a workshop for solving a work-related problem or a presentation on the company’s culture/vision. After lunch, a 2-hour, outdoor team-building activity if the weather cooperates. Following some free time, dinner is served, followed by an indoor team-building activity.
Day 3: Breakfast, followed by a brief business session, and then on to a team-bonding activity such as hiking, biking, or kayaking. After a 2-3 hour tour, return for free time, followed by dinner. In the evening, conduct an informal feedback session.
Day 4: Have breakfast together, perhaps ending with a short activity, and send participants on their way.
