Holding company events is a great way to unify your staff and give them some time together outside the workplace. At your event, you can do many things depending on your needs. However, there are a few general ideas that you could do at any event.
Hand Out Awards
Your employees work hard and they deserve to be recognized for their efforts. At your event, it’s worth it to have some time set aside to hand out awards for your employees. These awards should recognize your employees’ recent performance including what they’ve achieved and how they’ve improved. You should especially highlight their successes. This helps them to feel more valued and it can motivate them to continue doing well. If you choose, you can also have a section for some fun awards. Examples might include “Best Jokes” or “Most Organized” or “Always on Time.” Tailor these awards to your company and make them fun.
Take a Company Photo
At your event, you also want to capture some memories. Make sure you make time to take a company photo. This photo can be used simply for memories, but it can also be used for marketing purposes. It can be put on your website to give a face to your company. Your company photo can also be displayed in your office to boost unity. When printing photos, you want to have the best quality. Professional work can make your photos look great on any printing surface. Consider hiring a photographer for your event.
Keep People Engaged
During your event, you don’t want people to feel bored or disinterested. Your event needs to be engaging so everyone can enjoy themselves and look forward to the next event. The best way to do this is to have plenty of activities planned. You don’t want people to just show up and wander around. At your event, you can have some fun activities or invite some engaging speakers. Your employees need something to actually do at the event. Give your event a purpose so you can make it engaging as a whole.
