Corporate events are essential to fostering a strong, positive company culture. They allow employees from various departments to get to know one another, build teamwork and communication skills, and spark ideas that they can bring back to the workplace. Regardless of the kind of corporate entertainment you decide on, choose a fun, casual option that will encourage your employees to participate without making them feel like they’re simply fulfilling an obligation. Here are three ideas to consider.
Tips for Summertime Corporate Entertainment
1. Organize a Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt is an entertaining way to introduce friendly competition among employees. You can arrange groups in advance to encourage your employees to get to know coworkers they don’t usually interact with. Riddles can provide a fun challenge, since they require teamwork and communication to succeed. Make sure to establish ground rules (no cell phones, for instance), and offer appealing prizes. Gift cards, gadgets, and PTO are always favorites.
2. Have a Barbecue
Events with food and beer are excellent opportunities to bring your employees together. With its loose, easygoing atmosphere, a barbecue provides an appealing low-pressure venue where your team members can get to know one another better. Make sure to offer a variety of food options for restrictive and non-restrictive diets, along with plenty of drinks and lots of activities. A DJ, sports equipment, casino games, and karaoke can all be great corporate entertainment.
3. Throw a Costume Party
Corporate parties don’t always feel original, but costume parties do. Let your employees vote on a theme, such as “favorite movie character,” “black and white,” or “homecoming,” and turn your event into a night to remember. Your employees’ costumes, the venue’s decor, and the additional corporate entertainment options you provide will make this an event to remember.
