4 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PLANNING A TEAM-BUILDING RETREAT IN SOUTHERN UTAH


If you’ve been researching how to boost productivity and morale among your ranks, you’ve probably decided that a retreat in the beautiful backyard of Southern Utah is the solution for you!


The only problem you seem to be facing?! You don’t know where to start!


Lucky for you, that’s where we come in!


If you’re looking to plan an amazing retreat close to Southern Utah, we have researched and compiled the best options for your company! Here are the top things to consider when planning your team-building activity!



ONE | BUDGET


It’s easy to think you can do anything and everything during a team-building retreat, which is almost true. However, I am sure that you have a budget to take into consideration!


While it can put a stop to certain activities, it’s great to know how much you’re willing to spend! In fact, one of the first things you should do when planning your retreat is to see how much you can allot!


Think about doing some research! This will give you the chance to see how much things cost... REALISTICALLY! Go into planning with multiple options in mind! That way, if you decide that one is too expensive for you, there are ideas for activities you can fall back on.



TWO | TIMEFRAME

Consider the members of your team and the culture of your workplace.


Do you think it would pan out well to do a multiple-day retreat?

Maybe it may just be better to keep it to a few hours.


Make sure you take time to think about whether or not your team has families you’re taking them away from or possibly other commitments. Of course, you should never plan your retreat around one person’s schedule. But, make sure you are being as accommodating as possible.


No one wants to go to a retreat they feel inconvenienced by.



THREE | HOMELIFE


Speaking of families and prior obligations, what are your team’s home lives like? Do the majority have families or are they single? Can they step away from home for a couple of days or just a few hours?


A great way to find the answers to these questions is by sending out a questionnaire! Not only will this make sure you're including everyone in the planning process but by providing them with some minor details they can get excited for the best retreat ever!


FOUR | KNOW YOUR LIMITATIONS


If the activities you’re looking at involve anything that might hinder your employees from coming...


FOR EXAMPLE

Drinking for those under 21

Hiking for those that might be unable

Traveling too far from home for those who need to stay close.


... you may need to re-think your backyard team-building retreat. While sending out the questionnaire we spoke about earlier can help with this issue, make sure you know who you’re planning for and what will get the most turnout!


Again, make sure you plan something your whole team will be excited about.
