Nestled amidst the rolling hills and historic charm of Montepulciano, Smartway and mylia from the Adecco Group embarked on a two-day offsite retreat that was destined to be more than just a corporate gathering. This retreat was a mission-driven experience, meticulously designed to promote economic, social, and territorial cohesion for all the 240 participants.
mylia isn’t just another brand under the Adecco Group. It’s a beacon of innovation in training and development. With a unique approach that seamlessly integrates skills and behaviours, mylia’s vision is to foster growth. This commitment to development and innovation set the stage for a retreat that was both enriching and impactful.
Setting the Stage: Montepulciano
Montepulciano was an intentional choice for the retreat. The town’s historic and cultural richness created an ideal setting for intertwining corporate objectives with a meaningful societal impact. The town’s ambience was vibrant, melding modern and ageless elements in harmony.
The Profound Impact of Purpose-Driven Activities in Montepulciano
When 240 individuals converge on a territory like Montepulciano, the effects are bound to be transformative. This wasn’t just a gathering; it was a purpose-driven mission. Montepulciano didn’t merely serve as a backdrop to the retreat; it became the beneficiary of a collective force determined to make a difference. mylia’s employees, under the guidance of Smartway, embarked on activities meticulously designed to create a socio-economic ripple throughout the town.
The photographic treasure hunt was more than a team-building exercise. It was an exploration of Montepulciano’s rich cultural tapestry, promoting local artisans, businesses, and historical sites. Participants, alongside the GST (Gruppo Sbandieratori e Tamburini) of Montepulciano, delved deep into local traditions and culture. This immersive experience culminated in the assembly of 16 bicycles, not just as a symbolic gesture but as tangible contributions destined for orphanages and kindergartens in the area.
But the commitment to positive change didn’t end there. In a spirited initiative, participants took to the streets with trash bags, making it their mission to rejuvenate Montepulciano, one alley at a time. This act of cleaning went beyond mere environmental consciousness; it was a heartfelt gesture of respect for the town’s heritage and a commitment to its preservation.
A highlight of the retreat was the establishment of a fund by the Adecco Group, showcasing their unwavering commitment to equity and inclusion. This fund was designed to support the educational aspirations of Montepulciano’s children, particularly those from economically challenged backgrounds, ensuring they don’t miss out on educational opportunities like school trips.
Every activity, every gesture, was a testament to the power of collective action. It showcased the profound impact such a retreat can have on a community, ensuring that it leaves behind not just memories but a lasting legacy of positive change.
Challenges: Turning Them into Opportunities
Any event with such a huge number of participants is bound to face challenges. But for Smartway, challenges are but opportunities in disguise. Every detail, from logistics to content, was fine-tuned to meet mylia’s unique needs. The event’s agenda was a masterstroke, aligning seamlessly with mylia’s expectations.
A standout feature was Smartway’s proprietary app. This wasn’t just a digital tool; it was the guiding star for all 240 participants, ensuring that every moment of the retreat was experienced to its fullest.
Voices from the Ground
Feedback is the lifeblood of any event. mylia’s management beautifully encapsulated the essence of the retreat, stating, “In line with the 2030 agenda and in continuity with the initiatives of the Adecco Group of which we are a part, we decided to meet at our annual event in Montepulciano. The valorization of our territory, its products, and everything related to sustainability is a focal point for mylia. Our kick-off is a testament to this commitment.”
While the curtains on this event are yet to be raised, the meticulous planning, the palpable excitement, and the union of two corporate giants in a shared vision speak volumes. The Montepulciano retreat stands as a testament to the magic that unfolds when collaboration meets purpose, sustainability, and a deep-rooted commitment to community impact.
In the realm of corporate events, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of monotony. But when you collaborate with Smartway, you’re not just planning an event; you’re crafting an experience. An experience that aligns with your values, drives your mission forward, and leaves an indelible mark on all participants and the community.
The Montepulciano chapter with mylia serves as a reminder of what’s possible when intention, expertise, and collaboration converge. For those seeking to elevate their corporate gatherings, it’s time to think beyond the conventional. It’s time to think Smartway.
