s companies develop and grow, so does the distance between people. We get less time to get to know our colleagues, to create a community or to build stronger teams. It gets more and more difficult to ensure the company’s values reach the employees and to make sure everyone is aware of the direction and goals.
This is why companies have come up with innovative activities to be included in the corporate events organized throughout the year, and that can help connect people, boost team morale, reveal the company’s values or celebrate milestones.
The following activities are perfect for putting all the lights on the company’s brand and values. Enjoy and imagine!
Custom coloring – Giant coloring wall murals & coloring canvases
During the corporate events, it is not all about drinking, eating and dancing. New activities are being introduced to keep the audience engaged, and custom coloring for adults is starting to grow in popularity, especially when connected to the company’s brand. Have a large coloring panel with an image representative for your brand, get the attendees to color in throughout the event and hang it in the office as a reminder of the team-work it took to create something awesome.
Deep down inside, we’ll always be kids and enjoy playing, and Lego is always fun. Turn kids toys into adult ones by supersizing Lego blocks. You can incorporate this into team building activities at corporate events as well as competitions at trade shows by giving attendees few minutes to make the best Lego creation or create the company’s logo out of Lego pieces. If you don’t have the space for giant a Lego, give the attendees miniature Lego packs to build their creations while they are sitting.
Celebrities and influencers
People need role models, need inspiration and direction, need to feel proud of what they are doing. Show them that they are part of something big by inviting celebrities or influencers to speak about your company’s brand and values. A celebrity will for sure generate a buzz for your event and people will participate. Organize a panel, allow people to book short meetings with the celebrities or influencers and inspire them.
Anniversary Time Capsule
Whenever we celebrate a milestone, we often forget about the road that lead us to where we are and the people that contributed to success. Include a “Time Capsule” in your event, showing the moments that created the amazing company you are celebrating and remind your audience what your brand stands for. Ask your “veteran employees” to bring a personal item to include in the décor, include short videos with people that were part of the journey and thank everyone for their contribution. Use videos to your advantage as entertainment and for sentimental value. This could include making a company history to showcase or interviewing attendees before the event to compile a video they see on digital screens that will be playing throughout the night. Just be sure to get permission when using names or personal information in the capsule, especially with the new regulations on the market.
“I was here” board
Allow the audience to participate to the event by asking them to leave their thoughts on huge boards, either written or on sticky notes. The board should be branded with your company’s logo and the message you want to send to the audience.
