We take employee engagement seriously here at Mee Derby. Last week the Mee Derby team met up for our annual strategic planning retreat and to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary in beautiful, warm and sunny Islamorada, Florida.
The true value of our annual gathering is spending time in person as many of us work remotely. Back in our offices we use collaborative tools like Zoom, Bullhorn, and LinkedIn Recruiter to stay in touch. Of course we talk to each other on the phone constantly – but nothing compares to this time together. At our annual retreat we have a work agenda reviewing the year’s successes and challenges and planning for the upcoming year, but the meaningful moments are in the coffee at sunrise, the jogs, biking, swimming, walks, morning yoga (we have a yoga instructor on the team), sharing meals, snorkeling at sunset, and simply enjoying each other’s company. This year we rented a big house on the beach with paddle boards, kayaks and a swimming pool.
2018 is special because it marks 30 years of Mee Derby’s successful business providing search to the staffing industry.
Not only does time together enhance our business, it strengthens our team and fulfills our lives with the most meaningful thing of all – good friendships!
