If happy hour is the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done with your colleagues, then the list of activities Studley staffers have done together might seem downright eye-popping. They’ve hiked glaciers in Chile. They’ve fished for piranhas in the Amazon. They’ve taken martial arts class with a master teacher in Tokyo. They’ve rappelled down waterfalls in the Costa Rican rain forest.
These excursions were part of an annual trip that the company organizes for its senior leaders and top-performing employees. There is no set criteria to qualify, but each year it includes about 80 employees from the real estate services firm’s offices across the country. Board members take turns selecting the location and planning the itinerary.
“We try to do something different and we try to avoid places that people go with their family,” said David Lipson, an executive vice president and director of Studley’s Washington office.
