Company picnics are about generating community bonding and creating a space where the whole staff feels involved. However, it can be challenging to get everyone mingling if no set activities are laid out. Planning out games for large groups encourages people to participate. Getting the entire company involved in a game is a great icebreaker and may motivate everyone to mingle. A good company picnic feels like appreciation for everyone’s hard work and helps everyone feel more connected as a team.
Top 11 Company Picnic Games for Large Groups
A lot of thought goes into planning and organizing a company picnic. Much of the focus lies in the food, location, date, and time, so activities can sometimes be forgotten or loosely planned. Games and activities are important to company picnics; they motivate the team and entertain them. Here are some games to consider including in your next company picnic.
- Soccer game
- Ultimate frisbee
- Potato sack race
- Four-legged race
- Capture the flag
- Scavenger hunt
- Giant Twister
- Giant Jenga
- Freeze tag
- Red light, green light
- Musical chairs
- Trivia games
Regardless of the game you play, what’s important is that they’re activities your employees will enjoy. If your employees are not fond of sports, charades or scavenger hunts may be more enjoyable for your company. It may be a good idea to include your staff in planning out the games for the picnic. The last thing you want is to have games set for the day, but no one wants to participate because it’s not something they enjoy.
Company picnics are to thank everyone in the company for their hard work and dedication; the whole event should be centered around them. An excellent way to gauge what your staff wants for the picnic is to send out a survey or appoint a team to take charge of the picnic. What’s important is that everyone feels appreciated and has a chance to feel connected with everyone else in the company, especially if they are from different departments.
