Tips For Organizing a Successful Corporate Retreat

Are you putting together a corporate retreat or team-building event? Success relies on many factors, but we’ve found a few important ones that you can’t overlook in the planning process.

Ask for input

Rule number one for experienced planners: Ask your team to share what they want to see at the retreat. Let your team feel like they’re a part of the process! It can be as informal as asking them during a meeting or as formal as a short online survey.

Getting your team’s input means they’re invested in the event – and the planning process. And you may discover some valuable insights as well.

Make sure the location is accessible

While a secluded island retreat is appealing for many reasons, the reality is that it’s not always easy for your group to get there.

The Lisa Maloff University Center is conveniently located in the center of South Lake Tahoe. Not only is it easily accessed via Highway 50, an hour and a half’s drive from Sacramento (and an hour from Reno), but it’s also close to two airports – Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Sacramento International Airport.

Offer options

Teams are comprised of individuals, each with their likes and dislikes. Some may love the idea of a zipline; others may have a debilitating fear of heights. Giving people choices can go a long way toward creating a successful and memorable (in only the best sense) event.

And Lake Tahoe is loaded with them. You’ll find a slew of options here, including skiing and snowboarding, hiking, biking, golf, boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, fishing, and standup paddleboarding, to name a few. And there’s much more to inspire you and your team.
