Top 5 Reasons to Have A Company Picnic
With years of experience of designing exclusive company picnics, it’s great to report that the trend is back in this traditional way of reinvesting in the value of your employees and their sense of commitment and camaraderie. It is a perfect way to create a bonding experience between fellow workers and management - there’s nothing like playing on the same team to be on the same team!
So the countdown for the picnic payoff is ...
5 — A company picnic helps to build company morale
You work hard all year long and naturally walls build up between people and departments. A company picnic can break down those barriers as employees feel appreciated and enjoy a day out of the office. They can also allow open interaction between executives and employees in a non-intimidating environment plus network with other employees that they might not interact with on a daily basis.
4 — A company picnic shows appreciation for employee and their efforts
There is nothing like showing your appreciation for a job well done. Everyone is well aware of the sluggish economy, so by hosting the picnic you are saying it is worth the investment and the benefits will come back to you in spades. It encourages employee loyalty and continued hard work.
3 — A company picnic shows a commitment to employees and their families
Don’t underestimate the value of being loved by the little ones—not just because it’s a joy to see the smiles of hundreds of kids. When those children leave your picnic, they can talk about the great place that mommy and daddy work, bridging the relationship between work and family.
2 — A company picnic helps strengthen teamwork
Being tied to someone for a three-legged race or rooting for your assistant to dunk the boss will certainly get people back together and relate to their fellow employee. When you have to depend on others to accomplish a mutual goal and it’s done with a smile and good natured cheering and razzing, it sets the tone for future interactions.
