Corporate meetings can be notoriously boring. But there are a number of progressive companies and startups that have mastered the art of company gatherings. Corporate retreats are often used as team building opportunities and work well if you host them in the right environment and foster the right type of company culture.
But how do you make sure that your corporate gathering is engaging? How do you make sure that your employees truly want to attend the event? Follow these three simple steps to hype up your corporate events.
After sitting in an office space five days a week, the last thing your team wants is to find themselves in another meeting room playing team building games and talking about work. So put them to work in a different way. Community service is a great way to give back to the community while also making your employees use collaboration to better themselves.
Organize a walkathon, a benefit, build a home for Habitat for Humanity, or something else that requires close communication. Once they’re working towards a common goal outside of the office, they should be more inclined to rely on each other for support inside the office.
Don’t Be Afraid to Go Big
Trust falls and ice breakers can only go so far in a growing company. Think outside the box when it comes to your team building activities. For instance, one UK-based company now offers blindfold driving. Really.
Blindfold driving requires team members to come together to reach a common goal through creative problem solving. There are a number of companies nationwide that offer similar services. Use your resources to find something fun, creative, and unforgettable that will make a real impact on your employees.
Change the Scenery
Again, your employees will not be inspired by the same office environment that they sit in day-to-day. Make your company retreat a real retreat. Make it feel like a vacation with your office family.
By keeping the fun coming all weekend long, your employees will be glad they came, and you will have boosted their morale by the time that you return to the office on Monday morning.
