When it comes to forming a harmonious company culture, corporate events are a wonderful way to promote positive interaction and teamwork amongst employees. This enforces better relationships and often boosts morale and productivity. A close-knit team is essential for the success of a company, especially for start-ups.
Good news corporate events don’t need to be large scale ones within a special event venue. Sometimes small gatherings in your office suite are an easy but wonderful way to make your employees feel appreciated and a sense of belonging.
For example, it can be a group birthday party to celebrate those who are born in November. Have a casual one in the conference room or seminar room with a cake and pizza for everyone. Festive occasions are also a great way to have everyone together for a lighthearted buka puasa or Chinese new year meal.
Another idea is to organize a badminton or a basketball match to build team spirit. As teams may have to practice together months before the actual competition, this naturally brings employees together to foster stronger bonds with each other. Of course, make the prize attractive (like iPads for the winning team) so everyone is encouraged to put in the time and effort to win the game.
