Benefits of Off-Site Meetings
Friday, November 30, 2018

Meetings are important for bringing people together to share ideas and relay information, but many organizations find themselves struggling to have truly effective meetings where their team members aren’t bored or distracted by everything else going on in the office. Off-site meetings aren’t necessarily a new idea to combat these issues, but many people assume that “off-site” means an expensive meeting space and sending members across the country for days. The truth is that off-site meeting spaces are becoming more and more common in your area, and it’s time to take advantage of the benefits.

Improve your relationships

You could have the best team members of their respective fields, but they’ll still be severely inhibited in what they can accomplish if their relationships with each other aren’t solid. Off-site meetings bring everyone into a new space that can facilitate new conversations and bring people together that may not have gotten off to a great start or don’t have many chances to build a working relationship while in the office.

Increase your productivity

It’s a fairly common understanding that sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to step away from it for a bit and come back to it with a fresh mind. You may be surprised how much this applies to getting the whole team together in a new environment! Off-site meeting spaces can facilitate creative thinking by simply bringing people out of their comfort zones and ruts of their typical day-to-day.

Encourage communication

Sometimes our offices are inhibiting conversations in ways that we just can’t see. Physical space between coworkers can put up mental blocks, and many people prefer face-to-face communication. Off-site meeting spaces are often very open to walk around in, and since people don’t feel confined to their desks, they can simply walk over to a coworker they don’t speak to often. On top of building relationships as mentioned earlier, this can be a great facilitator for new ideas!

Improve moral

While you’re still getting together for the sake of business, your team is likely to see an off-site meeting as a mini retreat, especially when it’s a fun space. Most people love days where they can get out of the office, and they often result in your team coming back to the office refreshed and ready to get to work on the ideas facilitated by the brief but fun getaway.

If you’re interested in a local, affordable space that provides all of the amenities you’ll need along with a fun space, contact Blue Ocean today to book your meeting!
