Park City, UT, United States, 2013/08/15 - Silver Retreats survey results surprise many and will explain why employee incentives can turn the company investment into a win/win. Why use a corporate retreat company when the company has the staff? - SilverRetreat.com.
This is a good question and many companies often start doing their own corporate retreats or events, but later hire a corporate retreat company, like Silver Retreats. According to a recent survey, 87% of corporations say that their primary reasoning to hire third party is peace of mind. That's right, not budget or staff, it is peace of mind. The other 13% were a mix, some had their staff plan events and retreats, but found that it didn't save them money and others felt that they lost more revenue production was interrupted in the planning process.
Let's just take a moment to consider all the necessary parts of managing company events or scheduling a corporate retreat and the associated time that investment is costing:
Researching, creating, and calling multiple locations to accommodate each group
Creating a booking contract and setting-up payment options
Securing quality housekeeping and chefs for private retreats
Securing reservation paperwork and other details
Follow-up with staff regarding directions or transportation
Dealing with setting up the conference or banquet area
Renting projectors, microphones and projectors
Making sure presentations and equipment arrive at the location
Booking guest speakers that engage employees
Managing all accounting and bookkeeping related to properties that are rented
Schedule team building exercises or activities.
Companies can easily find that the work involved is equivalent to a full-time job (or more). Worse the meetings don't engage the employees, because the event was rushed and the message wasn't clear.
By hiring an experienced corporate retreat management company will not only get peace of mind, but will ease the burden of each event, resulting in better meetings, more engaged employees, less overhead cost and lower stress. If this sounds like something the company would like to avoid then it is time to hand the job over to the experts at Silver Retreats - "Where World-Class Service and Luxury Meet!"
