What is a company off-site?

A company off-site is a corporate gathering held by a company or organization that takes place away from the typical workplace.

Company off-sites are valuable to bring teams, leaders, or entire companies together to build morale and improve a company’s productivity and culture.

An off-site can be purely professional such as an off-site meeting that follows a rigid meeting template or agenda. Alternatively, an off-site might be a casual affair, sometimes referred to as a company retreat, where team members have the opportunity to disconnect from their typical responsibilities to relax, have fun and connect with colleagues.

Off-site activities can include:

  • Strategic planning

  • Establishing goals

  • Kicking-off new projects

  • Quarterly planning

  • Team-building activities

  • Determining/reaffirming team and company values

  • Brainstorming big ideas

  • Sharing feedback

  • Celebrating an achievement

  • Enjoying a fun activity

  • Attending an educational event or conference

  • Going for food

Off-site planners are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing an off-site location since an off-site can take place anywhere.

Traditional off-site gatherings typically occur at hotels, spas, or function rooms. However, organizations looking for an unconventional off-site can take their workforce to a beach, Art School, or yoga studio.
