St. George, UTAH, May 12, 2011–
Red Mountain Resort is an ideal destination for groups of all sizes to better employee communication and strengthen bonds this summer. Located in the heart of Utah’s stunning and serene red rock country, the resort’s more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space, combined with a dedicated staff tailoring to the needs of individual groups, ensure that employees feel energized and prepared to conquer upcoming challenges and reach important goals together.
“It’s important for companies to focus efforts on fostering employee communication, which in turn positively affects inter-office dynamic. We offer a medley of programs that drive this communication and improve employee interaction, all while motivating employees to think outside the box,” says General Manager Tracey Welsh. “These programs are designed not only to strengthen companies as a whole, but to harness employees’ individual potential and skill set.”
Additionally, the resort offers a full catering menu with sumptuous and healthy dining options, conducive to productive and engaging meetings. For groups looking to wind down at the end of the day, wine and beer are also available in the catering menu.
