Retreats Pay Off

December 13, 1987

For years private industry has been using retreats to improve its management skills and service to the public. It's good to see Orange County government borrow a page from that book by staging overnight retreats for the county's top-level managers.

The sessions, held away from the job site to ensure concentration, are not social gatherings. They are all-day (and evening) work sessions designed to make government more efficient and responsive. One session included a priest who raised the public officials' awareness about the county's homeless.

It's money well spent. The potential return for the small expense involved makes the retreats a worthwhile investment that other local agencies should consider.
