Running a faith-based business presents unique challenges and opportunities to incorporate the values you hold dear and live them out in the workplace. A corporate retreat is a valuable investment for any business. It’s especially beneficial for faith-based organizations seeking to align their mission, vision, and values with daily operations. Corporate retreats allow your team to connect, relax, and revitalize. Below, we discuss the many benefits of hosting a corporate retreat for your church or other faith-based organization.
Company retreats offer dedicated time for your team to bond and build relationships through structured activities and relaxation time between sessions. Offering a mix of both structured activities and informal gatherings at your corporate retreat will help build camaraderie and help everyone work together better. Canterbury Conference Center’s unique spaces allow you to design a retreat that can incorporate many team-building activities, whether you want your team to experience the challenge of completing a ropes course or work creatively to complete a project during a mini-workshop in one of our conference rooms.
Another benefit of hosting a corporate retreat is that it allows your employees to step away from the everyday grind of work to rest and rejuvenate. For faith-based businesses and organizations that constantly give their time and talents to others, finding dedicated time to get away may be difficult. However, prolonged seasons of work without adequate time for relaxation can lead to burnout. A corporate retreat may be just the time your team needs to stay productive. Our conference center is on 48 acres of lush landscaping, nature trails, and a lake. It’s the perfect place to enjoy nature and center your employees on what matters.
Cast Vision for Future
A company’s best ideas may come once you step out of the office or church setting and into a new, refreshing environment. A serene, tranquil atmosphere can help creativity flourish, allowing for out-of-the-box thinking and innovative solutions to issues your business may be facing. A corporate retreat in a beautiful setting enables your organization to put aside daily responsibilities to focus on bringing your organization to the next level. Your team will leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on the week’s goals.
Employee Satisfaction and Retention
One of the best benefits of hosting a corporate retreat is that it genuinely shows you care about your employees and their well-being. Employees that feel that they are part of a team are more likely to stay and see value in the long-term success of the organization as a whole. Corporate retreats and celebrations are also a great way to recognize employees for all their hard work and a job well done.
For a faith-based organization, connecting with God is at the heart of everything your company does. Canterbury Conference Center offers a special space for faith-minded business leaders and companies to connect with God and each other. Whether you want to hold an acoustic worship session in our indoor chapel or dive into a particularly relevant bible passage in one of our breakout rooms, we have a space for you to connect on a deeper level. All of this is centered against the backdrop of beautiful Lake Gem and a serene cross situated on the lake’s far end so that you can always fix your eyes on what’s important.
