Choose a theme
There are many themes that you can choose for use by you and your colleagues. When choosing themes for the corporate day, try to sample a few of your colleagues to get an idea of what they will like. This is not to say you will have to ask everybody’s opinion. Also it doesn’t mean you must choose a suggestion given by a colleague. The reason you will need to sample opinions is to be able to get an idea of what your colleagues will prefer.
Choose a team activity
Corporate days are day when the employees are supposed to have fun out of the office. It is a day when all the protocol in the office will be broken and managers will mingle with employees without that air of authority. To help achieve this kind of atmosphere, you will have to choose a team activity that will not only help everyone have fun but will also help them get to know each other out of the office.
Arrange for lunch
Naturally after a hard day of play, everyone will want to settle down to eat some wonderful meal. Make sure when choosing a restaurant, it is one that everyone can relate to. When organizing sitting arrangements, make sure you mix up the staff. Remember that this is a not a day for people to remember that they are senior managers. It is a day when everyone comes down from their high horse and just be exactly the person they are. That is why tables for lunch should not carry only people from a particular level. You can put the General Manager on a table with the drivers. That is how you encourage teamwork and get people to relax. You may not see it now but such arrangements can help people work better together.
