Employee Engagement through Events

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.
