When plan and managed effectively, a team-building retreat can be one of the most powerful strategies available for developing productive relationships between employees, and improving communication and collaboration between them. The key to gaining those benefits however, is that your team-building event has to be well organized and thought out, otherwise it can fall flat and achieve very little.
For this reason it’s very important to have all the little details ironed out, including transportation to and from the venue. In some cases, retreat venues can be fairly remote, well beyond Boston city limits. Whether this is the case for your planned team-building retreat, or whether you’re simply going to an off-site hotel to conduct your event, the best way to ensure that the transportation aspect of your retreat comes off smoothly is to have it done by Local Motion of Boston.
How to get there
If your team-building retreat involves a drive of any distance, you may want to arrange with Local Motion to use a 55-passenger motor coach, which will allow all passengers to ride in total luxury, on the jewel of our fleet. This state-of-the-art motor coach includes air conditioning, a lavatory, reclining seats, overhead storage, underneath luggage, reading lights, outlets for TV/DVD/VCR, and even Wi-Fi.
If necessary, handicap accessibility is also available, as well as iPod docking, and 110-volt power outlets for passengers to make use of. By transporting your employees in this beautiful and functional vehicle, you’ll be sending them a message right from the start that this team-building exercise is important to your business, and that you want every participant to enjoy the experience from beginning to end.
You can also arrange for deluxe motor coach transportation in smaller vehicles when you don’t have quite as many employees to accommodate. Local Motion of Boston also has 40-passenger and 24-passenger vehicles available, with virtually all the same amenities as our 55-passenger luxury motor coach. When you need to transport more than 55 employees, you can arrange for multiple vehicles, and this may qualify you for a discount which will lower the cost of transportation. If the team-building retreat calls for an overnight or a weekend session, there will be plenty of storage available, both in overhead areas and underneath the coach itself.
Your team-building retreat venue
You will have a tremendous number of options available to you when choosing the venue for your team-building retreat, but this should be carefully selected so as to maximize the effectiveness of your event. Whatever venue you have in mind, it should be able to accommodate whatever special activities you’re planning for your team, and hopefully your hosts can assist you with those activities.
It happens very often that the most effective possible locations for team-building retreats are in surroundings which are remote and relatively quiet. This offers your employees the chance to focus on the team-building activities, and on interacting with each other. Because you don’t have to worry about finding the venue or getting there on time with Local Motion of Boston, even the most remote venue is very do-able for your team-building retreat.
Our drivers are very familiar with all locations within Boston city proper, and with venues throughout the entire New England area. So wherever you choose to hold your team-building retreat, you can be sure that we’ll get you there safe and sound, with a minimum of hassle.
