Whether you’re looking to organize team-building exercises, boost employee morale, or simply spend time getting to know each other out of the workplace, it is vital to the functionality and environment of a workplace to show your employees and coworkers that they are appreciated and valued. What better way to achieve this by throwing an out of office work event! Don’t let fussy words like “work event” fool you. This is an opportunity to enjoy time together in a laid back, stress-free way.
Start with laying down a budget. Just because an event is laid back and “chill” does not mean you should cut corners. Show your people that you appreciate them and value their contribution to your workplace.
At Stokely Event Center, it’s easy to take something like a “company picnic” and give it a fun and exciting twist. Encourage employees and co-workers to invite their families and make a day of it! Our location is ideal for groups that have a wide age range and allow each and every person to enjoy our space in their own way. Stokely Event Center is filled with classic and vintage paraphernalia from Route 66, giving the space a fun and vibrant feel.
If your event is a yearly occurrence and you’re looking for a way to spice things up and keep it fresh this year, consider a themed event! Themes are a lot of fun and can provide new energy to invitations, decorations, preparations, doorbell prizes, and even food decisions! A luau, something western, the circus, even movie-themed! As fall approaches and those leaves begin to turn, consider a costume party or masquerade event for your company. This gives each attendee, from the oldest to the youngest, a way to participate and contribute to the event in his or her own individual way.
Consider planning activities for your group. Door prizes, raffle tickets, and games are a fun way to get everyone involved and excited for the day. Included in our event packages is the use of games including corn hole boards, ping pong tables, life-size Jenga, and more! And while you’re at it, why not a round of musical chairs to our state-of-the-art sound system! For a summer event, water guns and balloons out back could be just the little stress reliever that everyone needs. While just as fun, team building games are a way to combine an amazing time with invaluable benefits for your company. Fun activities like these are also the perfect way to welcome new employees and members of your company.
We know what you’re thinking, it’s easy for events like these can become a giant hassle and more work than play. However, at Stokely Event Center, our goal is to help you avoid just that. Each event package also comes with clean-up included. That way, your group can come, enjoy, grow closer as a team, and make incredible memories to bring up at the next office Christmas party!
If you’re ready to plan your next company picnic or work event, we’re ready to help. See you soon!
