Simplx Security Tech Retreat 2023

“The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”

Babe Ruth
Simplx Security 2023 Tech Retreat

What’s a tech retreat and why do you provide it for your team?

That’s such a great question! 

Every year in late fall (November) our awesome owners, Nate and Tara Routsong, send Simplx’s field technicians off on an adventure to Fulton Market in Chicago to play, breathe, and learn. They whoop and holler at a Bulls game, defend their place as last year’s winner in a glorious ping-pong showdown, and master the art of competitive whirly ball strategy.

Following these (and other) shenanigans, it’s time, once again, to tighten the knot of knowledge via intense, hands-on workshops and personal development presentations. 

The theme for this year’s retreat was Champions

Scroll for a peek into the 2023 Simplx Tech Retreat and hear from the techs themselves why it matters to get away together to relax, focus, and grow.

“Each one of our techs is such a vital part of Simplx. They work hard and deserve to be given the tools they need to learn and grow. We offer the tech retreat each year as a way of investing in our awesome team. This gives them the opportunity to work on themselves personally and professionally. The value of this strengthens coworker relationships and brings enormous value home to our lives in Fort Wayne.”

How does a tech retreat impact our Simplx customers?

Time, heart, and hard work are what keep the foundation standing strong here at Simplx. But to stay productive and motivated, it’s also important to cut loose and have fun! 

Getting away to bond and focus allows us to dive into the nitty gritty of what makes teamwork tick and reminds us why we do what we do. It strengthens us as a team and builds us up, so we’re better able to serve our wonderful customers (like you!).

“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is a process, and working together is success!”
