Company retreats tend to inspire dramatic reactions. Hyperfocused drones may be thrilled just to get out of their cubes. Others may sigh and roll their eyes, and do their best to ignore the perma-perky consultant who inevitably gets hired to lead employees through games and exercises.
One surefire way to bring all kinds of personalities together is with a giveaway, because everyone loves free stuff. Why not give away something a little special? Start with your company shirts and then customize them to add a graphic and/or lettering commemorating the retreat. Now the team that won the three-legged race will have their victory live on forever in cotton blend!
Why Give Company Shirts?
All joking aside, there are some good reasons to give attendees these kinds of shirts. They're free, so chances are very good that people will take and wear them, which becomes free advertising. In addition to the branding aspect, since the shirts will be a limited 'retreat edition' they may spark some additional interest and be more likely to stay in people's minds. They will reinforce positive memories of team-building for your workers. And for prospective employees it will show that your company can have some fun, can get employees out from behind their desks, and even give away things sometimes. These are all pretty positive things for a potential employee to think about your company. They may begin to plot their strategy for next year's three-legged race and hula hoop contest while you aren't looking.
