In today’s ever-changing work landscape, Personal Assistants (PAs) are the trailblazers advocating for remote work flexibility and nurturing work-life balance. Understanding the importance of flexibility and wellbeing, PAs are seeking tools and strategies to efficiently manage their workload while juggling personal commitments. We look at how WorkTripp can help to organise offsites to strengthen teams…

PAs often serve as the linchpins in scaling flexible work models, collaborating with COOs and team leaders to foster intentional team connections. Top companies recognize the importance of this approach, using offsites to strengthen collaboration, spark innovation, and cultivate a vibrant culture.

Great examples for leveraging offsites to strengthen teams 

🌐 Atlassian employs a hybrid model, leveraging offsites to bridge the gap between remote and in-office employees, enhancing collaboration across dispersed teams.

🔗 Buffer, a remote-first pioneer, prioritizes offsites and retreats to unite its global team, emphasizing the company’s dedication to team unity.

🎨 InVision utilizes off-sites and company-wide meetings to foster collaboration and nurture its unique company culture.

🤓 Research by Kneeland & Kleinbaum (2021) highlights the transformative impact of offsites on team dynamics, emphasising network tie formation and collaboration across dispersed teams.

But who’s looking out for PAs?

When it comes to maintaining a healthy work-life balance amidst the demands of organising team gatherings, offsites, or away days, PAs often oversee their own needs.

At WorkTripp we champion flexibility and work-life balance. We’re led by female founders who understand the challenges faced by PAs in today’s fast-paced environment.

Our platform empowers PAs and their teams by providing tools to streamline offsite planning and execution, enabling PAs to focus on quality of delivery and fostering collaboration, trust, and engagement among team members.

And it’s not just us advocating for this approach. The World Economic Forum and Harvard Business Review have listed company offsites as one of the workplace trends of 2024 and we’ve seen firsthand how streamlining offsite planning can save valuable time and make delivery achievable.

“I saved at least 70% of the usual time I would spend. It helped me to create a vision for our offsite, to understand the goals and create a plan from there.” – Paola Tartaglione, TaxScouts

“I’m so pleased we found WorkTripp when we did – they really saved us!”- Sally Lloyd, Radicle Foundation | customer
