What is a business retreat?

A business retreat is a short escape from the office – a time for a company’s employees to take a break from their everyday tasks, and focus instead on larger goals for the company. This usually means creating or solidifying the company’s mission and strategy, brainstorming new ideas, or working on developing new skills. It’s also a chance to build relationships and trust within the team, which is invaluable when times get tough.
