Meetings

According to the New York Times, after a year of at-home, hybrid, and limited in-person meetings, 80%+ of companies plan to return to a hybrid work arrangement in the coming months. With remote offices becoming the norm, organizations are looking forward to exploring in-person strategies to help realign with their team members and regain their company cohesiveness. 

The solution? Plan to reconnect in-person at a centralized location, which can not only safely accommodate all team members but can also provide an exceptional experience to encourage cohesive collaboration. 

Hybrid meetings, meetings that have both virtual and in-person guests, are a concept that we have all become familiar with in recent months due to the demand for remote work. Although they are a good solution for today’s challenges, there are areas where hybrid meetings can fall short. One could argue that a hybrid meeting’s biggest challenge is creating team cohesiveness, making sure everyone feels included, engaged, and heard. 

Booking an offsite meeting for your staff offers rewards that are, as the MasterCard commercials boast, priceless. Increasing morale, boosting confidence, and inspiring creativity are three advantages of hosting an offsite meeting but truthfully, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Connecting with coworkers and finding each other’s strengths while teambuilding are also key incentives to meeting with your team out of the office.
