The Ranch has announced three new custom group experiences tthat will be vailable at the Ranch 4.0 at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village.

The new packages include hiking, rest, strength, conditioning, massages and yoga. There are three base programs corporate and leisure groups can choose from—Leading & Clean Eating, C-Suite Retreat and Strength in Numbers. The packages are designed to promote both health and wellness, and build strong relationships between employees and employers.

“I believe we have seen a marked interest in The Ranch 4.0 from corporate and private groups because we offer a unique experience that naturally lends itself to teambuilding, camaraderie and mental and physical detoxification.” says Alex Glasscock, CEO and founder of The Ranch Malibu. “We designed three custom group packages with the intention of promoting a healthy and balanced lifestyle on an individual level, along with supporting a positive group dynamic both during and after the program.”

The Ranch works with corporate and leisure groups to create custom programming. The company developed the packages based off of trends they observed. Packages are based off of a three-day Monday–Thursday stay but can be adjusted based on groups interests.

Packages include:

  • Leading & Clean Eating Guests have the opportunity to work with Chef Meredith Haaz while exploring plant-based cuisine. This includes cooking demonstrations and a trip to the organic garden.
  • C-Suite Retreat With this, guests will gain a better understanding of their personal health and medical well-being through comprehensive tests. It combines in-depth medical testing and fitness programming.
  • Strength in Numbers This fitness-oriented package includes afternoon fitness classes and mountain hikes. All of the activities are designed to strengthen the body and clear the mind while encouraging camaraderie, empathy and teamwork.

Members of the The Ranch staff work directly with each group and adhere to their requests.

Packages include the three-day stay, a daily diet and group activities as desired.

Pricing begins at $3,000 per person for the all-inclusive three-day stay, with a 10-person minimum booking requirement.

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:
