Corporate getaways come in many forms. They can be incentive events to reward team members, team-building events to reconnect employees or conferences to educate, rethink and restructure. They are also a great opportunity to reenergise and relax. So, if you’re planning a corporate getaway, here are some strategies to maximise your time away from the daily grind.
While technology brings us creative solutions and effective communication, it’s important to place some limits on technology while away during corporate events. Some good solutions are to designate specific times during the day to check and answer emails, and to turn phones off during meal times. It’s also important to disconnect yourselves from any devices at least 30 minutes before bed.
Deep, rejuvenating sleep is essential for all employees to ensure they avoid burnout and stay energised. Quality rest is something we can struggle to get at home; so corporate getaways are great opportunities to ensure everybody gets a full 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Getting in the habit of prioritising sleep will lead to greater productivity, creativity and mental endurance.
While many corporate retreats focus on mental wellbeing, it is important to recognise the connection between physical and mental health. Just as good mental health allows for increased resilience and stress management, improved physical health is linked to improved emotional health. By exercising regularly you reactive muscles and relieve tension caused by stress and from sitting down for long periods of time. You can also increase blood flow and oxygenate your body, which leads to improved cognition and creativity.
