Corporate retreats, really destination meetings, are one of the go-to events for higher-ups looking to build team chemistry and boost morale quickly. 

In episode #054 of the Meeting Leadership Podcast, we qualify the pros and cons of corporate retreats, so you know whether it's worth it to start booking. 

The potential for innovation in an inspiring locale isn't always worth the return on investment. You might also decide a critical turnaround rate warrants maxing the company card to right the ship quickly.

The pros and cons are as follows:

Pro 1 - Improved loyalty and retention

Pro 2 - Team bonding

Pro 3 - Deepened corporate culture

Con 1 - Destination meetings are expensive

Con 2 - Locations change the meeting dynamic

Con 3 - Retreats take people away from family

Con 4 - The challenge of pleasing everyone
