Planning a corporate day out can be challenging, whether you are planning it for clients or employees there are plenty of things that need to be taken into account. There are businesses that specialise in organising events of this kind; approaching one of these can alleviate the majority of stresses. However this does depend on your budget as some of the event organisers will charge for this service. Organising a corporate day out yourself does not need to be challenging and stressful if you stay organised and plan wisely.
How Corporate Days Benefit Your Business
The reason why most companies will organise corporate days out will either be to entertain clients or for their employees, both of which are equally as important and valuable. Days out can benefit a business hugely, it can work as a great way to network or work as a team building exercise. It is important that they are kept fun and informal, this is vital for the success of them. Not only do the days need to be fun and laid back but hopefully nothing that the person has experienced before. A unique event will make you stand out from the crowd, which is what every business wants!
How To Organise A Corporate Day Out
Corporate days out can be expensive and it’s important that the money is used wisely. There are companies that will organise these events for you, however many venues will have there own events team which you will not have to pay extra for. Choosing the venue to have your day out can be the hardest task, and many times this will be guided by budget. Think about how many people will be attending and what are the suitable things to do with this number of people. There is no point of hiring a huge room for example if you are inviting ten people!
Examples of days out
There are many activities that are suitable for corporate events that you may not have thought of before. Quad Biking is a fun and a exciting activity that many people may not have experienced before.
There are many companies across the UK that specialise in quad biking track days that have events teams that will guide your group through the day. This type of activity is great for team building when a group of people already know each other. Wine Tasting is a great activity to do with a group of people that may not be familiar with each other, for example a client that you’re taking out for the day. It’s an activity that lots of people have an interest in but never have they opportunity to take part in. Wine tasting is a much more relaxed activity than for instance quad biking is and this is a great way to get to know people better outside of an office environment.
There are lots of things to take in to consideration when your organising a corporate day out. The key is to think about at all times what the participants will enjoy and you can’t go wrong!
