As the holidays wind down and the New Year begins, it is also a time when the office blues can set in as workers gaze out their windows at the sun with thoughts of vacations and trips they are missing out on from their cloistered cubicles. Perhaps, it is time to boost employee morale!
While the usual company impromptu gatherings have served a purpose in the past, they have become too cumbersome and expensive in today’s world of overworked, overstressed employees and executives. However, company-wide events still have their place when they have meaning, build community and offer marketing opportunities.
The solution, events with a purpose! Planning an event which builds your team effort while supporting a charity or cause can have a huge impact on employee morale and your bottom line!
Such charitable events have an added benefit, they provide networking and marketing opportunities while also increasing the business’s presence in the community. Encouraging employee participation becomes effortless as each person feels as though they are helping to make a difference.
To be most effective, a business must first choose the right cause or charity to support. They key is to find a charity that is relevant to the company’s own mission statement. The cause should also be relevant to the community in which the business has a presence to have a greater impact.
