Make Your Company Outing the One Employees Look Forward to Each Year

- Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Let’s face it; a majority of company outings are not something employees look forward to, but they go because they must. From using the same menu each year to having a corporate party that lacks personality, there are plenty of reasons for employees to avoid a company-hosted event. You can spruce up your event and boost employee morale just by adding a theme and a little fun to your next company outing. That way it becomes the event your employees will look forward to year after year.

Company Events Matter

Corporate events are great for encouraging a team spirit if done the right way. Whether it is a big party, summer outing or even a fundraiser, getting your employees excited about your events ensures they not only show up, but help contribute to next year’s show too. Also, with a successful event, you can:

  • Use it as an opportunity to widen your customer network; invite potential customers to the event so they can see what your company is all about.
  • Build new partnerships and pave the way for interested vendors by inviting them to your corporate-hosted events.
  • Highlight a new product or service, educate employees on the latest happenings at your company and make it fun.
  • Use the corporate event as a training seminar ensuring employees receive their annual training while having fun in the process.

Tips for an Exciting Corporate Party

You do not have to spend thousands to make your party interesting and memorable. All it takes is a few extra steps during the planning session and renting the right supplies. Some ways you can breathe life into your next company outing include:

  • Host a ThemeTheme events are always fun. From carnival themes to winter wonderland to even a Wild West party, you can add a little adventure and personality to your corporate party.
  • Include a Tent - If you are hosting a corporate outing, do not make your employees brave the heat and elements. Instead, rent a tent so you can safely keep food, give guests a place in the shade, and still incorporate it into your party theme.
  • Hire a Caterer - Variety is the spice of life. Hire a caterer and try different menus each year so that your employees have a new menu to look forward to.
