Team building venues grew out of the dramatic shifts in employee relationship efforts during the past decade. Gone are the brain-huddle sessions locked in a conference room or tired ropes-course days. Companies like Google, Yahoo and Black Mountain Systems pioneered the concepts of traveling team sessions, combining motivational work gatherings with a luxurious vacation setting. The sessions proved a successful way for businesses to strengthen inclusion and loyalty, especially among the growing number of millennial employees.
Team Building Venue Benefits
Team building venues provide inspiration to those outside the tech industry as well. We’re now seeing all industries, from medical, service and small-businesses finding benefits in these retreats. Part of the reason is that luxury, non-office settings lift the veils of expected ideas and allows for a more casual, relaxed and aspirational interaction of all team members. With a break down of office hierarchy, equal participation and ideas emerge. Large communal areas allow for gatherings of even large teams, while plentiful room for breakout sessions encourage agenda flexibility.
After joining together to move the business forward, participants don’t have to go home to the addition stresses of housekeeping and meal planning. Instead, they can shift into relationship deepening conversations by the pool or on a hike with coworkers. Catered meals wait for them. Let’s face it, sunshine and relaxation help attitudes! And, at the end of the day, teams retreat to the privacy of their own luxury, home-like rooms, without the hassles of a typical hotel.
The best team building venues provide not only a gorgeous setting, but also professional support so teams concentrate on their tasks, not those of the resort or community. Here at Casa de Luz, our luxury Costa Rica beach villa provides ample space in a natural, tranquil setting that sets the mood for both innovation and play. Let our experienced staff help you coordinate the perfect experience for your team.
