Why offsites work
Interruptions aremore expensivethan you think
According to a study by Fast Company, workplace interruptions cost companies $588 billion a year—that’s right, $588 billion. Ineffective communication is also one of the biggest drains on productivity. Getting out of the office and into a different environment keeps distraction at bay and teams focused.
Challenged employees = interested employees
Disengagement is costly. Companies with disengaged employees experience 18% lower productivity and 16% lower profitability according to the Harvard Business Review. Working together on strategic initiatives contributes to a shared feeling of success and improves overall company culture.
Understandingthe big picture
Offsites improve employees' understanding of a company's overall strategy and positioning. Creating an opportunity for your team to understand the big picture allows them to make more valuable contributions.
