Team Retreat

What is a Team Retreat and why do remote companies do it?

The biggest struggle for a lot of remote companies is the lack of face-to-face time, and therefore a sense of being desynchronised and sometimes a little disconnected.

A team retreat is often seen as crucial part of team building by remote teams. In a team retreat, all available team members meet in a shared location – often in changing locations around the world – and meet there to get to know each other personally, but also discuss goals and plans for the future.

Retreats tend to have a duration of 5 to 10 days, depending on size of team and travel arrangement. During these intense times, there are usually multiple company-wide discussions, discussions in group and also team-building exercises and excursions happening.
