Corporate events come in all shapes and sizes. Company events can be large and hosted at a convention, or they can be small and intimate. Each corporate event should have a purpose that leads to a positive impact on your company culture.
There are many ways events can drive impact on an organizational level. Here are some benefits that can make an impact from putting on events for your employees:
Rewarding Hardworking Employees
Employees are instrumental to the success of your organization, but they don’t all have the same impact on your bottom line. Show your top employees that you appreciate their loyalty and hard work by putting together a small get together or employee celebration. Employees need to be reminded that you care about their success just as much as your own. Rewarding employees Increases productivity and creates a happy workplace amongst other benefits. When your employees are happy it will radiate to your consumers.
Building trust with employees
For a majority of employees, 93% to be exact, find trust in their boss to be essential to staying satisfied at work ( Ultimate Software). Hosting company events and programs allows you as a boss to be a person first and not just a title to employees. While there can be a thin line between retaining the professional boundary, it’s important to maintain personable relationship with staff.
Like we mentioned above events can be as large or small as you’d like. Building trust with your employees can be as simple as grabbing morning coffee as a department or office, or attending work social events like the office potlucks.
Strengthening your community
The people we see on a daily basis quickly become our community. In addition to developing a connection with their organization, company events help people attending your events build connections and relationships with each other. This allows your employees to become more like-minded individuals in achieving company goals. These face-to-face connections are important in the virtual world, and can really solidify someone’s interest in working for your company. Company-wide events give employees an opportunity to network with each other. Putting a name with a face is extremely helpful when developing meaningful relationships.
Giving employees a sense of ownership
Inviting employees to celebrate this growth is a great time to thank them for your continued success. Employees who take part in milestone events feel a sense of ownership. When employees feel a sense of ownership over their company and their work, they’re more likely to do their best. Ownership is also important because employees will focus on what the company needs beyond what’s required of them because they feel invested in the team’s success.
Having your employees feel invested in the team's success, giving them the opportunity to network with clients and prospects are important ways to impacting your team through company events.
