Team retreats and offsite to foster collaboration and engagement

Hi everyone - hope you’re having a good week so far.

I was curious to hear what the group thinks about face to face interactions a way to boost collaboration and employee engagement amongst remote / distributed teams

  • is your company currently doing offsites/team retreats and If so how many / year?
  • in general, what policies are your People / HR team creating to foster more face to face interactions? eg travel allowances, co-working allowance, etc

Curious to hear what the community thinks!
thank you,
