If you are responsible for organizing your company’s next corporate event and are not happy about it, you could perhaps suggest that the company outsources the arrangements to professionals as they could certainly organize a memorable event which could even be unusual as well as productive and enjoyable. To convince them you could show them the Quiz Coconut events website where they will be able to see the wide and varied options available for corporate events, some of which may include axe throwing, beer tasting or a pleasant cruise down a river but not a usual ‘office party’ scenario.
Outsourcing has become popular with companies and so is now not just limited to customer services as many other aspects of a business can now also be outsourced and that includes the planning and organizing of corporate events. The organizer mentioned above is based in Toronto but there are others throughout the country and it will depend on their location, or at least the location of the client, what venues and activities can be offered for an event. These professional businesses which take on the arranging of these events are experienced and knowledgeable of all which is available in their area and can suitable offer whatever they deem appropriate for the size of their client’s company.
The professional organizers are aware that some companies want elements included in the activities which can assist in building teamwork among their workers and so will often offer team building activities as at least one of their options. Although team building is essential for improving productivity, friendly rivalry between departments can also improve productivity. This means that ideally, an event will have a team building activity which will enable the different departments to compete against each other for bragging rights. When this occurs the team building often continues back in the workplace and so does the rivalry between departments with each department wanting to out-perform the next.
Of course, though, corporate events are not only about improving teamwork and initiating rivalry between departments but they are, for the most part, all about improving or raising the morale of the workers and so that should be the main goal and one which professional event organizers are more than able to meet. By asking an organizer to provide different venues or activities for each subsequent event will boost a worker’s morale higher than just repeating the same event time after time. Of course, events cost money and so most companies will want to see some return on their investments, even if it is just an improved productivity level.
