Team retreats have become an integral part of fostering collaboration and strengthening relationships within organizations. However, in today’s environmentally conscious world, it is essential for businesses to prioritize sustainability in their travel practices. At NextRetreat, we understand the significance of responsible travel and continually strive to lead the way in team travel technology innovation. We are happy to introduce three new features that not only align with eco-friendly practices but also save time and enhance the overall work retreat experience.
In this blog post, we will delve into these 3 features in detail: Emissions, Expenses, and Ratings.
1. Emissions – keep track of your team trip’s co2 emissions
Deloitte’s Corporate Travel Study 2023 sheds light on the evolving landscape of corporate travel and the increasing importance of sustainability in this space. This includes measures such as prioritizing nonhotel and eco-friendly accommodations, implementing initiatives to offset their environmental impact and reducing co2 emissions.
In the face of climate change, tracking and reducing carbon emissions have become imperative. Our ‘Emissions’ tab allows teams to take control of their carbon footprint during team retreats, offsites and in-person meetups. By utilizing this feature, teams can monitor and mitigate their travel-related emissions effectively.
Our app calculates travel emissions based on inputs from organiser and data collected from team members regarding their departure location and transport preferences. By leveraging industry-standard methodologies, we accurately estimate the CO2 for flights, as well as accommodation and on-site transportation.
On this tab you can access valuable insights into emissions per category, enabling you to identify areas where sustainable choices can be made.
2. Expenses – stay on top of your expenses
Efficient expense management is vital for every team trip organiser. Our ‘Expenses’ tab streamlines the process, saving time and ensuring transparency. It allows team leaders to effortlessly track, categorize, and organize team trip’s expenses – eliminating the need for complex spreadsheets or manual calculations.
This tab enables users to add new items, attach receipts or invoices, providing a comprehensive record of transactions. With customizable expense categories, team trip organisers can gain better control over their budgets, make informed financial decisions during the trip and easily report after the trip.
3. Ratings – collect feedback from your team mates
Feedback plays a pivotal role in evaluating the success of a team trip and improving future experiences. Our ‘Ratings’ feature empowers team members to share their feedback and rate various aspects of the trip.
Using the Ratings tab, team members can easily provide rating and also written feedback on venues, activities, organization, restaurants, and more. This feature promotes transparency, encourages open communication, and facilitates continuous improvement.
Team leaders can leverage the collected ratings to make data-driven decisions and enhance future team retreats, ensuring an even more engaging and enjoyable experience for all participants.
