Sometimes, your employees need a pat on the back. And why not, if they have delivered performance par belief. A fabulous party is definitely a way to do this. The party needs to have the zest and verve to bring out the lost enthusiasm of your employees. Set the mood by losing the formal atmosphere and put on those casual funky clothes. Go beyond the office walls and explore new ideas. Think out of the box Mr. HR and you surely will show the same passion and zeal, that the workforce will reflect!
Send out the invitations for the party and make them a little personalized. This will make your employees feel comfortable and wanted. Take an opinion poll on what they would like to have as the menu and don't forget to add the RSVP. Like any event, budgeting is the most essential part so that you don't over spend your company's money!
Rocking the Night Away
Do up a 1980s rock theme with a hippie scene. Give out big flowers at the entrance, for the ladies and scarves for men. Don't have a fixed time for entry and exit; keep it round the clock. The apt location for this party is a farmhouse, or a private guest house. There you won't have to worry about deadlines. Have a karaoke and a personalized juke box, wherein you can dedicate songs. Have dress codes like blue jeans, poodle skirts, saddle boots, and leather jackets. Have your CEO dressed up as a Woodstock singer and shake a leg with him to rock the night away!
It's your most-deserving employee's last day. Throw a party for him/her and make the moment of gratitude, fun, and exciting. Since the occasion is important, it demands sending out invitations. An interesting invitation card would be with a caricature of the retiree on the front! Have a sense of humor, and if you do, then spread the laughter around. Get in touch with a travel agent and find a place for the party which fits your budget. Make a presentation for the retiree with every colleague putting in his/her vote of thanks and a loving anecdote.
We all know that golf can turn out to be arrogantly extravagant. But so what? Get a head start with planning and budgeting. Book a country club to accommodate the work force. There are many clubs offering good corporate golfing schemes. You can have a tournament for the employees for building team spirit and motivation. Spread the buzz around in your office, to have a blast at the event.
This is the best way of enjoying nature with your colleagues. Go out for picnics to the nearest forests. Mountain hiking isn't a bad deal either. Look out for locations that will offer you decent accommodation at a reasonable price. You can have games and quizzes at the picnic and give out prizes to the winners. This will also show the employees that the company cares for them.
Corporate events are fundamental to project the positive attitude of the company towards their employees. We often take our workforce for granted, which results in a high attrition rate and low morale levels. A fun and free environment encourages the employees to deliver better performances. So, go all out to show your love and care towards your employees, which will have your business skyrocketing!
