How to Plan the Perfect Corporate Retreat


How to Plan the Perfect Corporate RetreatFor employers everywhere, one New Year’s resolution we suggest is planning at least¬†one corporate retreat in 2019. Corporate retreats aren’t just designed for celebrating success, team building, and fostering relationships – these getaways can also boost morale and create a work environment that your employees will cherish.

In addition to operating as a wedding venue, Destin Bay House is the perfect spot to host your corporate retreat in Destin, Florida! If you’re wondering just how to throw the perfect corporate retreat, read on below for the scoop! Plus, discover just how Destin Bay House fits into the plans for your company getaway.

First, create an agenda for your corporate retreat. This will help attendees pack¬†accordingly, as you’ll likely be traveling, and will give them a sense of what to expect. An event agenda vs. structured timing is highly recommended – allow for the program to adapt and change when you arrive so you can get the most out of your time with your employees. However, when planning, try to avoid any cheesy activities that will prevent attendees from fully immersing themselves. Do your homework and look for fun and exciting activities that everyone will be eager to participate in. How about trying something new, like water sports? Because Destin Bay House is located right on Choctawhatchee Bay, you can enjoy a variety of water activities right from our dock!¬†

Don’t plan the retreat around meeting performance targets – the retreat isn’t an incentive trip, but rather to build relationships within the organization. If employees are competing against each other to attend, it creates the wrong kind of environment. That being said, friendly competition during the retreat creates a sense of fun and is more than encouraged!

Amidst all the planning, you’ll also have to find somewhere to stay. Fortunately, the¬†Cottages by the BayCottages by the Bay are located just across the street and are truly the perfect accommodations for everyone to stay in. The Cottages by the Bay consist of seven private homes within one community, where everyone can enjoy the comforts of home during the corporate retreat. Each Cottage sleeps anywhere from four to ten people, and all seven homes can be reserved at once to accommodate up to 44 guests. Inside you’ll find beautiful, luxurious touches that reflect the elegance of the surrounding area. Hand-laid tile and era-inspired furnishings are just some of the elements that bring the Old Florida-style of the Cottages to life. In addition, the Cottages are within walking distance of the Destin Harbor, local nightlife, and some of the best dining around!
