The Wolfhouse Story
People’s diet and health habits have been changing for the better in recent years, from reducing sugar to exercising more. However, our working habits have not. Stress and well-being at work are big issues and employee dissatisfaction is costing global enterprises big time. $300 Billion a year to be exact, according to the Healthways Gallup Wellbeing Index.
So what factors contribute to a team’s happiness, and how can managers truly begin to address them? Plenty of companies respond to these daunting statistics with free food, gym memberships and office dogs. Well, you’ll get an A+ for effort, but it turns out that there is much more to the equation of long-term happiness and motivation. There are just some things beanbag chairs and ‘pizza Fridays’ just won’t solve.
What if there was a way to boost team spirit and productivity through a team retreat or offsite in a unique and inspiring location? A retreat that can provide teams with the benefits of a traditional office, plus increased workplace freedom and some well-deserved rest and relaxation, all while strengthening team relationships through fun activities?
In 2016 we decided to combine the concepts of co-living and coworking into one space on the southwest coast of Tenerife. Wolfhouse® Los Gigantes became the first co-living space in the world designed exclusively for teams.
We have come a long way since launching our first venue, hosting over 1,500 team members from companies all over the world at all manner of events, including retreats, workations & meetups, whilst catering teams of every size. From small startups of less than 10 people all the way to much larger workforces of over 80, whilst maintaining an average satisfaction rating of 5 Stars.
Wolfhouse has now grown to a network of properties and hundreds of collaborators. All of this has contributed to the buzz and international acclaim around Wolfhouse and being featured in dozens of articles in a number of languages including English, Spanish, Czech, and Slovak.
Wolfhouse today offers a transformative experience that makes team members feel valued, returning to the office with renewed energy and positivity. What you are left with is a happy, productive and motivated team.
Inspired by Tech and Nature
Wolfhouse was founded by Martin Studencan out of a desire to bring teams together to live, work and play in inspiring destinations. As a longstanding ambassador of the remote working model, Martin realized the potential of off-site retreats for team building, morale, and productivity when leading a team at a London digital agency. His experience includes co-founding an award-winning startup STEMI, and being nominated for the Forbes 30 Under 30. This background forged a path leading to the Wolfhouse concept.
Wolfhouse opened its doors to workforces from around the world, offering comfortable venues, fully-equipped accommodation, and workspaces with a unique lifestyle twist. Teams can get stuck into all sorts of fun activities, from stand-up paddle boarding and yoga to wine tasting and hiking.
We took inspiration from the synergy of nature. Wolf packs function as families and are essentially teams. Every member has an important role to play, which, if performed effectively and in collaboration, benefits the whole pack-team and leads to success.
Wolfhouse helps bring teams together in stimulating environments to facilitate productivity and bonding via off-site working and team building activities. This design allows teams to live, work and play as a team, just like wolves who rest and hunt as a part of one pack.
