Mountain Retreat @ Resort on the Mnt
The summer of 2014 was a huge one in the Portland office; it was the type of summer that left everyone feeling accomplished, but also a bit short on breath. Working like a well-oiled machine, the Portland branch spent the summer months successfully knocking back-to-back projects out of the park; no challenge was too big.
As much as we hate to admit it, we are only human – and it was obvious to management that the team could benefit from a bit of well-deserved R&R. Taking matters into her own hands, our HR specialist Wendy set out to plan the perfect getaway for the entire Portland satis&fy staff – a weekend in a cabin, surrounded by the beauty of Mt. Hood. Wendy left the ‘trust falls’ and dated team-building exercises at home, opting for a handful of fresh and unique activities instead. Soccer-golf, kickboxing lessons, fantastic meals – there was no shortage of fun at this retreat.
Taking an opportunity between activities to form smaller department-based ‘breakout’ groups, the team had a chance to discuss and assess the previous year – chatting about the future and forging a game plan for success. Overall, the weekend retreat was a fantastic way to let our stress float away, and set our sights on future goals as a team.
Thank you for a fantastic weekend, Wendy!
