Planning a Company Picnic in Indiana

May 20, 2008
Does your corporation have a picnic or event each summer? Should they? Even in rocky years a company picnic can further employees morale and show that the company proprietors appreciate their employees endeavors in making the company succeed.

It takes some work though, to plan the best company picnic. Here are a few points for making the event fantastic, even on a modest budget.

Location: There are many party locations that specialize in corporate events. Many of them offer catering to make your planning easier. But you do not need to go off site. If you have a corporation that runs 24/7 sometimes it is better to have your event on site so that all employees can attend with their families. This is also a neat opportunity to offer tours if your company has a factory, or area that the average person cannot visit. Many parents really enjoy showing their family where they work and what they do. . Food: Food can be as simple as hotdogs and hamburgers grilled by the management staff to a fully catered event. There are many catering organizations that specialize in company picnics and you can plan everything from ribs to dessert. But when the management cares enough to be part of the food preparation it seems to mean a lot to the workers. If you choose this though, make sure that you have a lot of help so that everyone still gets a chance to enjoy the party.

Entertainment: The entertainment is the most simple part of your planning. And again, it can be simple or extravagant depending on your budget.

You can propose Bingo for adults and relay races for children (both with awards). Corn Hole and Volleyball contests are always huge fun. If you are proposing tournaments, make sure to have a sign up table so that there is no delay starting the games.

Inflatable and Interactive games can be a big attraction for kids AND adults and they certainly add a merry flair to the event. There is something about pulling into a parking area and seeing monster moonbounces and slides to get the group stimulated.

Many companies offer casino games for the older crowd while the youngsters are playing on the inflatable games. Casino games are played for fun with the winners winning prizes.

Remember as you are planning entertainment that many things take a power source so you want to plan your event with powerneeds in mind.

Budget: Pick your budget before you start. This will give you an idea of where to start. But, do not despair if your budget is small. Speak to your vendors. Many vendors will be more than happy to sponsor part of your event. Some of the very best company picnics we have done had sponsored by signs in front of all the inflatables and game tents. This is a fun way for everyone participating in your company growth to share some time together.

Just keep in mind while you are making plans that your ultimate goal is to show you value your staff and their families efforts to support your business. Do not make your plans so complicated that you cannot savour the day. A company picnic should be fun for everyone; even the managers!
