According to studies, employees spend 31 hours in unproductive meetings and most employees are attending up to 62 meetings a month. These wasted hours have a negative effect on the productivity and morale of an organisation. Taking the time to plan an offsite meeting can have significant benefits for businesses and employees and here are some reasons why:
When planning an offsite meeting, extra thought must go into the agenda, the attendees and the running time. With most meeting rooms being hired by the hour, meetings are forced to run on time and in an efficient manner. Being offsite, employees tend to be more focused as they are not distracted by daily tasks.
Remaining in the same old surroundings makes it difficult to break free and become inspired. Being in a new location will break habits and put people in a creative mind-set. Employees are more likely to collaborate and spark ideas off one another. This relaxed environment is an ideal place for companies to brainstorm and come up with innovative ideas.
Provides Newer Technology
Your usual meeting room may be fine for quick catch up meetings, but why restrict yourselves? Offsite meeting rooms usually provide access to newer technology. Meeting rooms at Tec Marina come with touchscreens fitted with Mind Mapping software, perfect for large presentations and idea sharing.
Offsite meetings give employees a chance to build relationships face-to-face rather than over email. Sharing travel to the meeting, sitting next to someone new and swapping ideas in a non-territorial environment can increase camaraderie and create a more cohesive organisation.
Who doesn’t enjoy a change of scenery? An offsite meeting feels exciting and indulgent and can make employees feel valued. This boost of morale and positive energy can often be a source of productivity and creativity throughout the meeting.
Tec Marina has various sized meeting, event and training rooms available to hire. Each room has its own touchscreen and comes with access to unlimited hot drinks. We have worked hard to create an inspiring environment that will help you get the most out of your meetings.
