If you’re hosting a church service, a town hall meeting, or even a corporate meeting, being forced to limit attendees can be incredibly frustrating. With today’s mandates ever-changing, people feel unsure of attending, and important attendees who could share useful information may not feel it wise to visit a crowded space. A solution that many are finding is to have guest groups meet at a satellite location.
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.
Are you thinking of hosting an off-site corporate meeting? This option is growing in popularity, and for good reason. Offsite meetings in unconventional venues add value in multiple, often unexpected ways. Although there is an additional cost to an offsite meeting, the benefits can easily outweigh the expense when properly planned and executed.
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.
