Why the Texas Hill Country Should be Your Next Weekend Employee Retreat Destination

Why the Texas Hill Country Should be Your Next Weekend Employee Retreat Destination

For those of us lucky enough to live in central Texas, it’s great to know we have access to one of the most beautiful and diverse destinations: The Texas Hill Country. Whether we are talking Texas Wine Country or amazing camping and hiking, this beautiful spot located near the state’s capital of Austin is the place to be.

As an employer, you are always looking for ways to make your team feel valued and connected. Finding a weekend retreat that doesn’t break the bank can be a challenge, lucky for you we have a great suggestion for your next employee weekend getaway!

Texas Wine Country

What could be better than employee-bonding over a nice bottle of Malbec? The Texas wine country has never been better, and with beautiful accommodations, and well-organized wine tours, the wineries of the hill country are a sure bet for an employee weekend retreat. Currently there are 53…yes 53…. wineries that are scattered throughout the Hill Country, from Austin to Fredericksburg and Lampasas to New Braunfels. You and your employees can learn about wine, which makes for great conversation pieces with clients (hint-hint). You can find a complete list of accommodations HERE where you can plan a day of team building activities coupled with nights sipping wine by a fire pit while your employees talk about how much they love their job.

Go Climb a Mountain!

Ok, so Enchanted Rock may not technically be a mountain, but it sure feels like one during the hike to the top! Team building is at its best in nature and the Hill Country has plenty of opportunities to connect with the great outdoors. Excellent camping abounds, such as Garner State Park and Guadalupe River State Park where your team will have the opportunity to rent kayaks and paddle boats, enjoy an outdoor BBQ, or maybe even a trust fall from a picnic table. River floating is also a popular activity in the summer where your employees can enjoy a lazy day of bonding from an inner-tube, followed by an evening of team building activities before retiring to their tents.

Plug into Unplugged Music

You don’t have to be a fan of country music to appreciate the infamous Luckenbach, Texas where “Everybody’s Somebody”. The quaint little music destination was established as a trading post in 1849. There is an old dance hall still in use every weekend, live music daily, a General Store and a bar (beer and wine only). While this isn’t a place for an overnight stay, it’s still a great place to visit. You and your team can kick back under the 500-year-old oak trees, listen to music, and watch the chickens that roam freely around the yard. Close enough to the aforementioned Texas vineyards, Luckenbach is a great day trip while staying overnight in the Hill Country.

Travel to Europe without Leaving Texas!

Fredericksburg, Texas is a very special little place that leaves the visitor feeling like they booked a plane ticket to Germany. Pioneers from the Fatherland settled in Fredericksburg over 160 years ago and brought with them their quaint architecture, love of beer, and of course schnitzel! There are many adorable bed and breakfasts along with larger hotels that are equipped with meeting rooms to host employee development and team building. Fredericksburg is great to visit year-round, but it really shines during its Oktoberfest, which mimics the world famous one that happens in Germany every year. Train your employees by day and then let them travel to Germany by night, what could be better than that?

Whether you are looking for an escape to nature, a cultural mecca, or a sophisticated wine country experience, the Texas Hill Country has you covered! You can learn more by visiting http://texashillcountry.com/.

3 Reasons Why Involvement in Your Local Apartment Association will Lead to Your Next Promotion

3 Reasons Why Involvement in Your local Apartment Association will Lead to Your Next Promotion

We have all been guilty of putting off getting involved with a professional organization because of lack of time and energy. However, you may be missing out on much more than a well-organized casino night with your industry peers. In the multi-family housing industry, apartment associations are a must-stop for career advancement. Below we have listed out 3 Reasons Why Involvement in Your local Apartment Association will Lead to Your Next Promotion!

1. Education

One of the cornerstone initiatives of professional associations are to educate their members on what the latest techniques and industry trends are. Your local apartment association holds valuable classroom-type and online educational courses on many of the subjects your employer cares about. Not only will you learn how to be the best you can be in your personal job, but you can be the employee that comes back to your office and shares valuable (and impressive) information with your fellow team members. Your employer is sure to notice your efforts and will put you at the top of the list for a future career advancement opportunity.

2. Networking Gold

It is very easy to get stuck in a career fishbowl by not socializing with other professionals in your chosen industry. Your local apartment association, in addition to educational courses, hosts social events that serve the purpose of allowing its members to meet and network with each other. In the case that you work at a company that does not offer opportunity for the growth you desire, these professional social events might just put you in front of a future employer that can offer the growth you are looking for.

Aside from introducing you to outside employers, these social activities can also help bring you and your current boss closer together. Often times the office environment is too busy and routine for you to really differentiate yourself from your co-workers, especially when a promotion is on the table. By giving yourself the opportunity to shine in front of your boss at an industry social event, you could reap the benefits back at the office in the form of career advancement.

3. Shows Your Career Ambition

Nothing shows your employer where your professional head is more than getting involved in your industry outside working hours. Being active in your local and national apartment association will tell others around you that you are an ambitious industry leader and you care deeply about your career path. These are the exact qualities that bosses look for when considering a promotion. Put yourself ahead of the pack and get involved with your local apartment association today!
