A successful corporate retreat is an excellent way to bring your team together. It’s an ideal way to change the pace, and help your team to re-energize and refresh, allowing them to return to work revitalized and ready to start again.
It’s also a great way to strengthen collaboration between team members, or even encourage cooperation across different departments. In fact, according to some professionals, spending regular dedicated time at a corporate retreat, away from distractions, should be considered essential.
If you’re considering a corporate retreat, one of the best places to get away from it all is the Lake George region in the Adirondacks. Tucked away in the northeastern corner of the Adirondack region, and less than one and a half hours from Albany, this area is full of inspiring natural beauty, and is the perfect place to hold a corporate retreat.
At Friends Lake Inn, we offer superb facilities, as well as ideal accommodation for retreats. Our ideal setting, friendly and professional staff, and excellent facilities allow us to offer you everything that you need for a perfect retreat.
Here are a few reasons to consider Lake George, and Friends Lake Inn, for your next corporate event.
A corporate retreat is about breaking away from the distractions of everyday work life, and allowing your team, and yourself, a change to recharge, and refocus. Naturally, the location you choose will have an impact on the success of the retreat. The ideal location is one that frees you up from distractions, and gives you time to contemplate strategic as well as leadership issues, and to work on your team’s development. At Friends Lake Inn, our picturesque setting, beautiful backdrop of the lake, and scenic mountain views make us an ideal place for contemplation, and reflection.
Activities on retreats can help to promote teamwork and strengthen relationships, allowing the team to come together and work towards common goals. At Friends Lake Inn, we have a wide variety of spring and summer activities available such as kayaking, canoeing, biking, and hiking.
