Office Event Ideas to Drive Culture and Employee Engagement
I am really passionate about employees being happy. I’m really inspired by Sir Richard Branson’s quote that goes something like: I take care of my employees and my employees take care of my customers. It just speaks so truthfully to how I feel as an employee. When I feel unvalued and under-appreciated, my work quality does slip. Vise versa, if my company is loving hard on me, I’ll be doing the best work of my life. Therefore, it is only fair to say that the only way to treat your employees is with care.
We can add to employee happiness, because we office managers, admins, event coordinators, jack and jill of all trades, culture cultivators, vibe mixologists, HR generalists, product managers, project managers and team leaders have the powerful gift of influencing culture. My gift is by hosting incredibly engaging office event s. My teammates are over the moon with me; they don’t stop bragging, and they compare everyone else’s office to ours. (*GUSHHHING* I am so lucky!) This is a direct result of the time and attention I put into hosting awesome activities … dare I say… for adults. Oh! I love an alliteration.
I hope this list of office events inspires you to host or create fun in your own office. Together we can change the stigma of “work” one karaoke night at a time.
