What are the benefits of a Corporate Challenge or Retreat?

A corporate challenge or retreat can be a great way for a business to support employee wellbeing, foster teamwork and develop leadership potential, with benefits lasting long after the event.

A corporate challenge or corporate retreat has the power to motivate your team and improve staff retention and job satisfaction. Stepping outside of the day-to-day and facing a challenge together improves work relationships, team outlook and if well-executed, can be a compelling reason for staff to stay with your business so as to not miss out on next year’s event.

Corporate retreats are great for team-building, learning, engagement and goal setting. We highly recommend choosing a unique destination, preferably in a natural setting, to maximise the benefits for the team and ensure you all return to the office recharged and inspired.

A challenge event can also be used to support specific company goals, such as gender diversity and inclusion. As an example, an organisation may invite a segment of their workforce - such as women in leadership positions or promising women at different levels of the organisation - to participate in a special corporate challenge as part of their diversity initiatives. This can be a powerful way to build vital mentor relationships and empower the participants within your business. They will return to the office ready to take on challenges in the workplace and continue their development. Choosing to partner with a relevant charity as part of the challenge can be a great way to inspire your team and add extra meaning to the event.

The benefits of a corporate challenge for the nominated charity can also be significant. An annual corporate challenge event can have a great impact over time both financially through funds raised, and from greater awareness and support for the charity partner among participants and their circles of influence.

Please get in touch if we can help craft an event to suits your goals. We are also happy to provide testimonials from our clients.
