If you run a company, positive employee relations help build camaraderie and good morale. One way to energize your employees is a company-sponsored picnic. With summer half gone this year, it’s not too late to work with the Pink Elephant to create a perfect picnic. There are some excellent reasons to host a picnic for employees:
Gives employees a chance to meet others from different parts of the company — A picnic is an informal way for employees to meet others who may be in different areas of the company. Perhaps they are only a name to each other prior to the picnic, but afterwards they will have a personal connection. It also helps employees to see management in a less formal situation to help employees feel empowered.
Encourage teamwork — Employees who know each other well can work more efficiently, so a picnic can be a great first step in getting through those introductions and letting employees interact in a friendly environment.
Boost morale — Picnics, like any corporate-sponsored event, can help boost employee morale and show employees they are valued in your business. They will help employees relax and build up their energy for the work ahead.
Show your appreciation — A company picnic is a great way for you to show appreciation for your employees. It shows them you are grateful for their hard work supporting the company.
Make an announcement about the company — A picnic is a great way to announce plans for the business or just to show off a major company success. Your employees are all in one place, so take a few minutes to thank them and tell them how the business is succeeding.
And, have some fun! — A company picnic should be informal, entertaining, and simply gives everyone a chance to have some fun.
