Why Bringing the Whole Team Actually Makes Your Company Money

It’s not uncommon for FSMA members to select one or two senior employees to attend Top2Top each year. But did you know that sending a larger group actually provides more value to your company?

Here's 5 reason's why.

1. Strengthens Company Culture and Fosters Team-Building

Attending as a team is a great way for company to nurture collaborative team-building and fortify company culture. The FSMA Top2Top-NexGen environment allows for more relaxed and natural interactions to occur, it also helps inspire shared excitement and passion around work related topics. This leads to greater retention of both newer and even senior staff.

The greatest expense for every company is turnover, which happens most often when your employees aren’t emotionally connected to your goals or culture. Bringing them to FSMA Top2Top-NexGen shows them you are as committed to them, as they are to you. Plus, what better way to rally the troops for a banner year than to kick off the year, united as a company, all in one place, at our January 15-17, 2019 Top2Top-NexGen?

2. Helps Solidify Learning and Professional Growth

Learning in a new space encourages growth that is otherwise unlikely to happen in your company’s everyday environment. Attending FSMA Top2Top-NexGen as a team is a powerful way to develop new skills, catch up on the latest trends, spark inspiration, rekindle passion, hear from experts, and more.

3. Enables Greater Knowledge Absorption

As a team, employees can talk about and plan around a strategy for the conference. Having a larger group present at an event also allows individuals to take a ‘divide and conquer’ approach to the program, share notes, and explore resources that might be otherwise missed. It also encourages a dialog around the sessions, speakers, and topics that will likely lead to a greater overall understanding and appreciation for the content. This year's conference has over 20+ sessions (many concurrent), so unless you divide and conquer, you won't get to experience all our great speakers.

4. Social Support and Mentoring is Empowering, and Impacts Your Bottom Line

Let’s face it, conferences can be intimidating, especially for younger staffers. Attending events in groups provides a level of comfort that ultimately will help empower individuals to make the most of their time. Mixing younger and tenured staff together also provides a unique opportunity for mentoring among teams, and mentoring reduces turnover.

5. Significantly Reduces Company Cost

Financially speaking, it often feels like an expensive proposition to send a large group of people to a conference. But in truth, sending a team will help cut professional development costs in the long run for organizations committed to providing training opportunities for their employees. Think about it this way, traveling with a group to one event allows for shared lodging, transportation, and food costs (most of the meals are on us!), whereas if each employee attend different meetings on their own throughout the year, you are spending more annually (even if the meetings are regional) than you are sending everyone to Top2Top-NexGen.


The bottom line...is it's your bottom line.

From top to bottom, it’s the kind of conference that cuts through the typical conference bull and sets real priorities for mutual success -- or your money back.

This is your market, your moment, and your move. So why not take advantage of the only foodservice agency-manufacturer focused event guaranteed to make you and your company more informed and more profitable, and carve a 2019 strategy that puts you on the path to explosive growth?
