Most of us live a busy life with crazy work schedules that take up most of our time. Given the amount of time we spend with colleagues, it’s important that we get along with other employees. However, opportunities to get friendlier with your colleagues and teammates are few and far-in-between. Corporate events are a great opportunity to create an interactive and entertaining environment where employees have fun and unwind together. These events can help employees to connect with each other and build good workplace relationships. But, to have fun together, the events should also be fun! If you want to get everyone’s attention, hosting the same dinner and dance party doesn’t work. You need to up your games and do something interesting and different! We have rounded up some really creative and out-of-the-box corporate entertainment ideas for you.
Organize Fun Activities and Games
While the idea of organizing fun games and activities for corporate events is nothing new, it still has plenty room for creativity. Making this type of event fun depends on the types of games and activities you include. Holding scavenger hunts, escape rooms, roast parties, social photo booths, etc. are some examples. Dodgems are fun and so are food fests and casino nights. However, not all employees would like the same games. One failsafe way to make everyone happy and interested is to take a simple survey and organize the activities accordingly.
Host Interesting Performers
There is no dearth of interesting performers in the world. Whether it is standup comedy, roast artists, motivational speakers, live bands or musicians, you can find talented performers all around you. However, when choosing a performance and performer for a corporate event, you need to make sure that they are captivating and different. Watching the same type of music bands can get boring and dull. But you can spruce things up by going for a DJ or VJ or choosing some interesting numbers instead.
Live Sketching and Caricature Artists
Another really fun and unique idea for a corporate party is having a live sketch or caricature artists. These artists can show off their talent while entertaining you t the same time! You can ask them for some fun caricatures or sketches of your bosses or colleagues to break the ice and make things interesting. And it is also a good way of getting people to laugh together. As they say, the best parties aren’t those with the best food. In fact, the best parties are those with the most laughter and fun!
Use Virtual and Augmented Reality
Augmented reality games can be extremely enjoyable especially when combined with other activities like scavenger hunts or mystery rooms. Same goes for virtual reality games and activities. Using such technology for a corporate event can be very expensive. However, it can also be really fun experience that can help build team spirit, improve trust, and develop a bond between the employees.
Hold Contests or Karaoke
While this is one of the oldest ideas in the book, it is still full of opportunities for super fun! You can show your creativity with some truly unique and interesting contests. Similarly, karaoke is another such option that is common yet very enjoyable and involving. Instead of being an audience and letting others perform, these contests and karaoke events can get the whole team involved and build team spirit and understanding.
While a lot of your choices depend on the budget and particular tastes of the people attending the event, they are all bound to enjoy most of these options. These ideas can surely keep the employees entertained and engaged and make the event a success.
