Nowadays, corporate family fun days are becoming a lot more popular, and there are many good reasons for this. It’s a brilliant way to spend time in the outdoors, for one, and everyone loves being in nature when the sun is out, and the weather is excellent. But at the same time, corporate family fun days allow everyone to relax and have fun without worrying about their jobs and responsibilities. It also allows people in the company to learn more about each other in a casual setting, and perhaps even foster better friendships and relationships in the workplace. But not everyone is eager to join corporate family fun days – that’s for sure. So, what can you do to motivate your workers to join your upcoming corporate family fun day? The following are the five ways you can motivate everyone in your company to join – and enjoy – a family fun day.
- First – get some feedback
One of the very first things you can do so you can motivate and encourage everyone to attend family fun day is to get some feedback. You can prepare a questionnaire and distribute it to your workers and employees so you can learn more about what they prefer when it comes to a family fun day, especially in regard to the kinds of activities they want you to include. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about their families – their children’s ages, their partners’ preferences and dislikes, and more. By doing this, you can have an easier time deciding what kinds of activities and entertainment to go for if you want everyone to have a wonderful time.
- Decide on the venue and location early on
After getting everyone’s feedback, you should make it a point to look for the proper venue and location – and do this as early as possible. When you are checking out venues, look for one which is easily accessible to everyone in the company. Another factor you should consider is free parking – it’s a definite bonus if you want your workers to have a great start to their day. You may also want to think about a venue or location which has both an indoor and outdoor space. You never really know how the weather will turn out on the day itself, so it’s best to have both an indoor and outdoor space featuring both indoor and outdoor entertainment and activities.
- Think carefully about the entertainment
Whilst you may already have a good idea of what everyone wants when it comes to entertainment, you shouldn’t forget some classic favourites, such as fairground rides and attractions as well as fairground stalls featuring different food, stuff for sale, and more. Today, you can take advantage of a whole host of fairground rides as well as fairground stall hire, and you can easily take your pick from food vending tricycles to branded games, vintage games, and rides such as Ferris wheels, carousels, dodgems, and a helter-skelter.
- Serve a variety of food and beverages
As already mentioned, the food you serve at your corporate family fun day makes a whole world of difference. You want to serve classic fairground and family day favourites, from popcorn to fish and chips to barbecued ribs and chicken to snow cones and ice cream – as long as there is a lot of variety for everyone, you can be sure that all participants will have a truly wonderful and relaxing time.
