Did you know that an estimated 70% of employees are disengaged, costing your business thousands of dollars a year?*
Events can be a fantastic way to engage with employees. Whether that event is planned by the company, the employees, or a community organization, there are many ways to further engage employees and it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Here are some ideas for employee engagement events:
- Volunteer service day
- Workplace Jeopardy
- Axe throwing outing
- Mini golf or soccer golf tournament
- Cocktail making class
- Family picnic
A few considerations:
- Ask employees for ideas, or give them an opportunity to play a leadership role in the planning efforts.
- Be sure to clearly communicate attendance expectations as well as details like end time, dress code, transportation, etc.
- Do your best to find an activity in which all of your employees can participate, regardless of age or physical fitness level.
