TRiNDS Fall Retreat 2022 Highlights

TRiNDS partners with innovative clients working in rare disease research around the world. We prioritize providing clients with high quality, uninterrupted support from our experienced and professional team members. To provide our clients with continuous support, TRiNDS fosters a predominantly work from home (WFH) environment that is project-centered, emphasizes collaboration, and cultivates social connections within our team.

Even though we are home-based, engaging in person is still central to what we do at TRiNDS. Our Pittsburgh team meets in person once a month to maintain and grow team relationships. But what about our team members across the country? Well, that’s why we have our annual company retreat!

This year, TRiNDS hosted our first in-person company retreat since before the COVID pandemic. Our retreat took place over a 3-day period from the 3rd-5th of October in National Harbor, Maryland. We covered several topics such as company and role-specific goals, career development, key performance indicators (KPIs), and personality types. We even had a TRiNDS trivia Jeopardy board!

TRiNDS also set up several social activities, including team dinners, duckpin bowling, group painting, and a private haunted walking tour. Overall, our team members left the retreat with better team connections and a greater understanding of our company goals. We would like to express our appreciation for everyone who attended the retreat and anyone who was involved in a retreat presentation. TRiNDS extends special thanks to our HR Specialist, Terri Fettinger, who was responsible for organizing and booking all our retreat locations and activities.
