“Being in nature, able to breath, allowed us to get creative with the issues we had to solve, not just operate from an in-the-container approach”
Whether you’d like to honor staff for outstanding achievements, show gratitude to your employees or team for a great year, or empower company members to bond and brainstorm together through coaching and experience, Imiloa is where you will find that advantage. In fact, more corporate and startup companies than ever — including executive management — are starting to ask us about Costa Rica executive retreats at Imiloa.
Having a work-life balance is essential, now more than ever. It’s no secret that high-level executive positions can be demanding, time-consuming, and stressful. Key studies show that a lack of efficiency in the workplace can be directly correlated to an employee’s wellbeing. Recognizing the influential role relaxation, recharge and regrouping plays in all of this can be a determining factor in the success of your workplace culture.
We have spoken with and heard from dozens of large corporations who are thinking differently. The organizations that are on the cusp of innovation and truly cutting-edge in their industry. The way they do business is by continually finding that edge. And they deepen that journey by meeting their edge here in the jungle.
THE MOST EFFECTIVE BONDING
Corporate retreats are a wonderful way to reward your staff for all of their hard work. They also serve as an effective way to bond with your team through intimate experiences and team building activities.
But what’s the most powerful incentive trip you can give your team? A relaxing and recharging getaway, which in turn, increases performance.
Long gone are the long monotonous team conferences. Our curated corporate retreats are a unique way to unify the workplace and ignite passion. When you cultivate a team that’s full of purpose-driven employees, success is inevitable. These individuals will not only want to see the success of the company but the entire wellbeing of it.
“We’ve hosted this United Nations summit for 5 years. This is the first year we haven’t hosted at a hotel and we love Imiloa.
We had major breakthroughs in not only what we strategized, but how we strategized.”
