Refreshing the Team Experience: 2017 Retreats
One of Fresh’s 2017 goals was to continue actively enriching our company culture and employee experience, which has been a key focus over the last several years. In order to achieve the goal, we integrated off-site retreats this summer for multiple teams!
Fresh developers headed to a Leavenworth cabin for rock climbing, Bavarian food, and board games.
The business development team hopped over to Langley for golf, a salmon bake, and late-night foosball and air hockey tournaments.
Fresh designers took a trip to the Oregon coast to hike and spend time outdoors. Fresh project managers jet skiied and wakeboarded on Lake Chelan.
Suffice it to say, Fresh had a busy summer of team building! During each trip, Fresh leads facilitated group discussions to explore Carolyn Dweck’s book, Growth Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, and how it relates to our company philosophy.
Check out our photo highlights from the trips:
