Corporate events and meetings are not always the most fun way to spend a work day. However, there are some easy ways to reboot your next corporate event and give your employees something to look forward to in the future.
Make It Fun
Your employees may dread going to corporate events because they seem to drone on and issues do not feel resolved. To head this off, start your corporate meeting with a positive tone, and mention achievements the company and various employees have made. Then, throughout the event, set up games and exercises that entertain your employees. Instead of typical team-building exercises, set up board games throughout the corporate event venue. These games will excite your employees and motivate them into a productive mindset.
Get People Moving
It is very counterproductive to have your employees sitting down at a meeting all day. It interrupts their normal work schedule, and they become bored easily. Allow people to stand up and move around, and ask people to participate in the meeting regularly. If you have exercises or multiple speakers throughout the event, then set them up in different areas of the event space. Your employees can move around, and their physical and mental juices will be recharged.
Offer Several Breaks
You must offer breaks throughout your corporate event. Your employees can only focus for a limited amount of time before they begin to zone out. During these breaks, your employees can use the restroom, stretch their bodies, or catch up with their neighbors. You can also add some short, creative breaks where people are required to tell their neighbor a joke or do a short game of thumb war. These breaks will keep everyone alert and activate their creative juices.
