The people leader’s guide to planning the perfect team retreat

Running a remote-first company is hard. Keeping employees engaged, aligned, and accountable can be challenging when everyone is working from home, and loneliness can become a real issue for key team members if you, as an employer, are not providing adequate opportunities for in-person connection.

Amidst the changing world of remote work, there’s one thing you, as a People Leader, can bet on: Offsites are here to stay, and you will likely have a hand in planning them.

This can feel like a daunting task, but by methodically taking into account all of your attendees’ needs, you’ll be able to overcome logistical challenges, ensure the effectiveness of your agenda, and achieve the overall business objectives for each Offsite you plan.
