Take a peek behind the scenes at the Agathon Group annual team meetings

Lake Michigan during AG team meetings

Every year, Agathon Group employees gather for a week-long retreat to refresh, recharge, and reflect on the previous year. As a virtual company with employees spread out over several time zones, it’s a treat to set aside time for onsite team meetings. This year, we gathered in Grand Haven, Michigan. We thought we’d share some of our highlights:

We started off the week with a little table tennis, air hockey, and a more serious, but equally fun, state-of-the-company talk. At left, Marissa Watson and Paul Yuen play table tennis and at right, Luke Baker and Ron Veenstra get serious about air hockey.

To bring our Agathon Group retreat to a close, staff families in the West Michigan area joined us for a barbecue at the retreat house and after time on the beach, s’mores and lots of coloring, the kids posed for a cute group photo.
