Best in Class Education Center, the Seattle-based leading education enrichment franchise with programs focusing on math and English, hosted its annual corporate retreat from June 18th to 24th. Corporate employees, along with friends and family, traveled to Maui to connect with each other and celebrate the hard work that each team member has put in over the course of the past year.
Best in Class CEO Hao Lam and his wife Lisa decided to start the annual retreat for corporate employees eight years ago to encourage each team member to enjoy time together and to reward them for their hard work each year. The incredible incentive has included trips to Cancun, Riviera Maya, and Alaskan cruise, and now this year’s trip to Maui.
Each corporate leadership/management team member is invited on the annual retreat. The first year, about seven corporate team members attended, and this year, 14 corporate team members joined, some of which brought friends and family. Prior years have also included franchisee attendance—Best in Class invites its local owners to join the trip so that they can get to know the corporate team a little better and network with other members of the brand’s family.
