All of this can be achieved with the perfect amount of party planning and a team boosting approach to your annual corporate shindigs. This year we are all set to turn the heat up with some fun summer days, fit for everyone. Don’t let the summer waste away without throwing in some much needed down time for your team; and don’t limit yourself to just one core activity. Mixing more than one type of event will ensure that your team get’s to enjoy the highs of their companies success, with the perfect blend of mood boosting fun and chill-out time.
Corporate summer parties don’t always have to be about team building, although this is always a popular choice. So let’s expand our corporate summer party horizons and look at some of the best summer party themes and events that will help bring your annual corporate party into the sizzling season with a big, loud bang.
Super Sizzling Corporate Summer Parties
Summer parties ALWAYS brings to mind this sizzling corporate summer party idea. In fact, topping the list of any corporate event is food; and summer just calls out for a good old-fashioned, barbecue bonanza. Don’t forget to cater for everyone with plenty of grilled veggies, an array of vegetarian options and masses of mouthwatering meats. Corporate summer parties are way hotter with a little bit of that barbecue heat, so sizzle away!
Bringing the Beach
If the beach is just a little bit too far from your doorstep, then why not bring the beach to you for your corporate summer event in London. Corporate summer party themes are plentiful, but this one really screams out SUMMERTIME. The traditional British summertime party brings to mind ice creams, deck chairs, Punch and Judy shows; and this is definitely one of the popular choices for your annual summer party theme. But if you want to mix things up a bit then look no further. You can create a Hawaian summer luau, complete with grass skirts, flower necklaces and a limbo pole; or an under-the-sea theme for your corporate event, incorporating shell or sand art into your team building games.
Family Fun Day
Corporate summer parties can of course fall on a weekend, but even if they don’t, it’s summer so this one is always a winner. Any day of the week. Create the perfect blend of work, rest and play, with a fun-filled family day. Mix things up with a barbecue and a beach themed party; and continue with an awards evening or team building event that lets everyone be a part of the action. Family fun days let your staff show off their achievements, both private and professional. The whole day can work around the inclusion of family. Alternatively, if you want to include some adult-only time, then set a time when the event will be turning into an official family-free zone. Whichever approach works for your company, will work for your team.
Team building activities are still always going to be a winner for any summer corporate party; and talking of winning, why not spice things up with a little competition. Teams can compete with one another for prizes, or simply for the thrill and power of winning. Games can be light-hearted and fun, set up to make everyone giggle their way through the silly activities; or strategic and complex. Most importantly, they should be suitable for everyone. Mix this activity with some summertime cocktails and an after-party fit to celebrate the reigning champions and you’re onto a winner
Show your team what they mean to you with an awards evening that helps everyone to sparkle like the stars they are. The key with this is not to limit the guest list to just your office; but to bring in the big bosses or family and friends, to really help boost team morale. We all love a bit of recognition for all of our hard work and this is a great way to show your staff that they are appreciated and that their efforts don’t go unnoticed. Throw in a few funny awards – and props for the winners to wear – and you’ll keep everyone entertained… and the Best Beard award goes to…
Do you work with other companies? Do you collaborate with other offices to achieve your companies’ goals? If you do then there is nothing to stop you collaborating on ‘project corporate summer party’ with them too. Team members can mingle and socialise with the people they work with every day, even if their work never brings them into the same room. Putting names to faces is great to enhance and tighten those relationships; and even to create new ones. Again, this event can include loads of fun activities, an abundance of food, competitions and of course, drinks. Mix things up a little while mixing things up a lot.
