Corporate retreats can be an unproductive waste of time. ... The purposes in general are relaxation, team-building and brainstorming new ideas. .... We have one in our community and my boss went through it with a group of peers. .

I’m part of a small group tasked with planning a corporate retreat. The purposes in general are relaxation, team-building and brainstorming new ideas. I’ve got the relaxation part covered, if the other two don't get in the way. I could use some ideas, inspiration, topics, activities, tips etc for the group plan. Also, as for my own participation at the retreat, I could use either methods of generating new ideas that have worked for you, sources of inspiration and/or specific suggestions of areas for finance/accounting to consider. Honestly, my fear is being put on the spot to spontaneously generate brilliance. As I write this, I guess I’m looking to get a jump on fresh ideas for myself and to help structure the event in such a way that it’s comfortable for everyone, myself included. That makes this kind of a two-part question…. ideas for the group plan and ideas to help me get a little inspiration. Thanks!

I haven't done this on a retreat, but this was done at a prior company and it had a great impact:We split people into teams - generally one person from each department - and asked them to come up with a new marketing campaign to grow our business. They were asked to take it from the beginning to the end (budget-sourcing -marketing-sale-production-shipping-collecting) and present to the executive leadership team.What ended up happening was that each person got a first hand look at each other's pain points. They started understanding that sales wasn't just about taking people to lunch and making ridiculous promises. That the warehouse folks weren't creating more work for everyone by having to track PO's and receivors. That the accounting people weren't trying to make it difficult for everyone just because. There was enough time during the project for everyone to share some of 'why' they needed to get the information they had been asking for. They met for a short while each day, in between their other work.The result was that people shared ideas to help their co-workers, they were less resistant to requests, and the ideas they came up with were phenomenal. We also noticed a breaking down of the cliques. And the people not involved the first time this ran asked right away when we were doing it again, so they could participate.

Personally these events always end up being something I’m not comfortable doing or have difficulty doing – paintball would have me aching and barely able to move in less than an hour – and usually happen when my desk is threatening to collapse from the amount of work on it. Some other sessions like this include really early morning travel – which can be a nightmare if you aren’t local and don’t drive.

Team building is important to build a strong relationship between employeer and a employee.

It may be a casual saying without any meaning attached to it. One can't say for sure.

It depends on the company, but there may be guest speakers, games geared toward strengthening the employees' feelings of being a team, and opportunities to discuss future ideas for the company.
