Why Your Company Should Have a Corporate Event
Have you been tasked out with planning a corporate event or company picnic for your entire office? If so, it’s not as hard as you think. In fact, corporate picnics benefit employees from all departments, even executives and CEO’s. Here are some reasons why a picnic or event can help your company’s bottom line.
Face Time With Other Employees
We’re not talking about meeting others through a conference call here. We’re talking about getting lower level employees more comfortable with executives and other higher-ups. This in-turn can lead to a less stressful work environment. A team-building day is an ideal way to get other employees to connect with those they may not see on a regular basis. It can also allow you to meet with people from various offices.
Connect With Your Business Partners
Your corporate event can be a great time to treat your business partners to a day away from their desks, and show them your appreciation. This can allow you to develop new business strategies by sharing some of the accomplishments your company has made over the past year, along with your goals for the next year or quarter. Your business partner may be able to help you if he or she attends, allowing you to potentially generate new business.
Help Your Employees Work as a Team
Think how a day filled with team-building activities can improve teamwork within your office. If you’re working on getting more collaborative within the workplace, a corporate event can help bring together people who normally don’t work with each other. This can lead to one person giving someone else in another department an idea to help make projects more efficient.
Reward Employees For Their Success & Hard Work
According to research from Bamboo HR, employees who are rewarded for hard work are happier than those who are not. Has your sales team went above and beyond by exceeding their goals this year? Reward them with a day out of the office. Happier employees also lead to better productivity, leading to more revenue coming in.
