We do a combination of retreats. Since the start of the pandemic, all of our all-company retreats have been virtual, and we've held 4 of them. Here's a bit on <a href="https://www.parabol.co/blog/virtual-retreat-learnings/">what we learned from doing the first three</a>.
With vaccinations becoming available and restrictions easing up in summer of last year, we wanted to start getting together in-person, but found it too difficult to plan something for the whole team, especially as we're stretched around the world. So, we opted for smaller team gatherings, which were easier to plan. We started with a leadership team retreat last summer, and then held retreats for our product, sales, design and marketing teams.
We're continuing with this approach for this year: we've already held a leadership team retreat, we're planning in-person get-togethers for our product and growth teams this summer, and we're hoping the whole company will be able to meet up in the fall. We're not sure what the balance between team and all-company, in-person and virtual retreats in the future, but we aim to give folks 2-3 opportunities to do some type of retreat each year.
