There are so many brilliant options to choose from, so hopefully you’ll be able to draw some inspiration from this post and start planning a night to remember!
Let’s start with the benefits of hosting a corporate party
1 – Bolstering employee morale
Let’s be honest: who doesn’t love a good party? Particularly if you’ve been cracking down hard on your employees to finish strong in 2018, an awesome corporate event to regonise their hard work is a great way to bolster morale. Kick 2019 off with an exciting corporate event to energise your employees for another successful year.
2 – Show your employees that you care
It can be difficult, finding the time to acknowledge your employees’ hard work, but it is something that you should endeavour to do more often. The focus of our entertainment services is to bring people together and inspire success. By hosting a rewarding corporate party, you’re clearly demonstrating that you value their hard work. It doesn’t have to be overly expensive or elaborate, simply a gesture of appreciation.
3 – Incentivise performance
Again, by showing your employees that you value you their hard work, you’ll inspire them to perform even better in the future. Sure, everyone has a job to do and they should give it their all regardless, but what’s the harm in a little reward? Treat your employees as you’d like to be treated. Would you go above and beyond for a company that failed to recognise your talent? It’s a win-win across the board. Look at it as an investment at the very least.
4 – Strengthen the bond between your employees
Given that your employees spend most of their time together, it’s not uncommon for frustration and contempt to breed between the ranks. By affording them the opportunity to ‘let their hair down’ and enjoy a relaxing, non-work-related experience together; it can strengthen their bond.
It’s also a great opportunity for employees from different departments to get to know one another better; encouraging heightened synchronicity.
We could harp on about the benefits of hosting a corporate party all day! You get the idea. Now, let’s move on to some immersive entertainment ideas for you to choose from.
1 – The dreaded escape rooms!
Escape rooms have taken the world by storm in recent years. Bringing groups of friends together and pitting them against one another in a battle of the wits! Engaging puzzles, thought-provoking twists and an all-round ball. There are plenty of escape rooms opening up all over, so you’ll be certain to find one big enough to host a corporate event.
This is a great way to break up the ‘cliques’ within your company and partner different people up. You will inspire new relationships and allow the ‘quiet ones’ to flourish in a wholesome and immersive experience. You could finish it off with a trip to the pub or a local restaurant where the winners can gladly gloat their way into the early hours of the morning!
2 – Jump on the augmented reality band-wagon
You’re all familiar with the Pokémon Go phenomenon, surely? An interactive application which allows the user to explore their surroundings in real-time, on what is effectively a ‘treasure hunt’. Well there are tech companies out there who can tailor an augmented reality app for your corporate event. This is a new and innovative technology that could turn your corporate event into a thrilling, team building exercise that would go down an absolute treat!
3 – Live band / DJ
Sure, it’s not exactly the most ‘innovative’ of ideas, but you really can’t go wrong with hiring a band or a DJ for your corporate party. With the right group you can have an amazing party which will surely encourage all of your employees to get up on their feet and have a dance. – A cover band always goes down well, particularly if they play all of the ‘sing-along’ classics!
4 – The puppy play pen
This is a relatively new idea, but something which has worked incredibly well in the corporate party field. Create an event which involves a big, interactive pen filled with fluffy little fellas for your staff to engage with. It’s cute, it’s fun and it’s bound to get everyone involved.
5 – Pass the microphone
This is a tricky one as it might put some of your more introverted employees in an awkward position, however it’s a great way to encourage interaction all the same. You can gather your employees in a circle, if even for half an hour and have them pass the mic. Kick start it by throwing the mic to the more boisterous of the lot (you know the one’s) and have them talk about what they enjoyed about the year, what/who they’re proud of and what they hope to achieve. There are many ways that you can apply this idea, but it’s a fun way to get everyone involved and having a laugh!
Again, it doesn’t have to be overly elaborate or expensive. The main focus is for you to show your employees that you appreciate their efforts. Anything that you can do to incentivise and reward them will go a long way. If you’re interested in exploring our entertainment services further, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
