Why Have a Company Party
When was the last time you hosted a company event? The pandemic put paid to most company outings in the last couple of years, but if you are doing things right, you should be able to have a company event with your employees that are safely done.
People go to work for eight hours a day and even more than that, and they are looking for somebody to help them manage their day-to-day stress. A career? That’s stressful to build on, and having a regular company event that allows your staff to let their hair down can be a great way to decompress.
It is often the case that the value of a corporate event is misunderstood. You’re not providing people with a party for them to get drunk and be silly – you’re providing them with a social opportunity to have fun, to think about something other than work, and to allow them to get to know their colleagues.
Whether you host your event outside under a 10’x10′ custom canopy to protect them from the rain, or you hire a bar and comp the drinks, you should consider the reasons behind hosting a company party in the first place. It doesn’t matter where you have it, it’s all about improving team morale. Here are some of the reasons you should say yes to a company event.
It’s a good way to say thank you
People are coming to your business and working themselves to the bone to make sure that your product, your service, and your idea come to fruition. Paying for an event is a great way to thank them for all of their hard work. It’s a reward.
It’s a chance to build the team
If you want your staff to be able to connect with each other, then hiring out a venue for an event is one way to do it. People are forced to work together even if the personalities don’t always mesh, but events like this could help people to relax and get to know one another. This allows you to reap the rewards of better communication and a much smoother workflow.
It’s great for motivation
Whether you are holding a company party annually or more than once, it’s a great way to help people to let go of all the stress. It can be a good idea to schedule any company events after the busiest periods in the year for your business.
You can talk more about your company values
At these events, you have a chance to thank everybody, but you also have a chance to remind people of the values of the company and that team spirit is something that’s important to you. These events help to emphasize team spirit while retaining your company employees, allowing everybody an environment they would want to work in.
Why shouldn’t you have a company party? Why should you say no to events like this when you know it’s going to reap so many rewards for you and your staff? Just say yes!
