Get Up and Go Marketing on how you build an effective company culture
Get Up and Go marketing highlight the importance of company culture for any kind of business. The individuals involved in the network of a business will feel better gelled to one another; a well-developed company culture allows for people to be better engaged and feel that the company cares or is attentive of them of their needs.
Teams or even the individual need to feel that they are valued for the service that they provide for a business which is why downtime is a necessity to get right when a workforce give so much for the success of a business. Co-workers need to be able to re-focus their priorities and goals and distance themselves from the realities and challenges of working life. Interacting in a new environment leaves the team refreshed and ready to hit the day again.

Get up and go marketing are no strangers to company retreats; as the firm work with many young professionals, they have previously taken their contractors to fancy galas and adventure trips to provide invaluable experiences that would be hard to attain otherwise.
Get Up and Go marketing share five tips for an effective team retreat:
- Involve the whole team
Something that needs to be considered when booking a retreat is: Why are we going? Who should come?
Ideally a retreat should be open to all the individuals working with the company, so that nobody feels left out. One of the primary reasons for a retreat is to create a true feeling of togetherness and create a sense of camaraderie. Failing to invite people can have a negative impact on employee morale. Unity is important when looking to achieve business objectives as a unit. Ultimately a team retreat can boost confidence, clarity, and efficiency through the exchange of ideas and communication that otherwise may not happen.
- Take the retreat offsite
Instead of keeping the retreat near home, organise an event a little further away, while also keeping cost into account. Consider everyone’s availability and ability to travel, make sure that it is logistically feasible but ultimately fun!
- Have a discussion to gather feedback
Employees do not often get to express their ideas or feedback, this could be through fear or just a busy day-to-day schedule that does not allow for this to occur. A discussion can clear the air and get concerns out in the open. By creating a safe environment for discussion to occur, issues may be raised and workplace challenges can be identified that can be prioritised and dealt with.
- The Power of fun
Try fun activities for staff to participate in, such as theme parks or adventure trips, e.g. white-water rafting, skydiving. Outrageous activities can often bring out the personalities and thoughts of people in a manner other retreats or team events may not be able to draw out. Get creative!
Get Up and Go Marketing hope to incorporate more weekend retreats in the future to reward their enthusiastic contractors. The firm hope to provide more opportunities to learn more and exchange ideas through these team retreats while leading the way with how company cultures should be established in a company.
