Many companies don’t know the right scale to work with when setting up company events. There is always the strive to balance the use of funds and achievement of event’s goals. But just how much should one spend on a beneficial event?
Well, the amount of money a company spends on company events depends entirely on its capability, but it should always seek to achieve the following:
Satisfy company workers
More than anyone may think, the image of a company begins with how it is perceived by its own workers. A company event, be it a one-day dinner, a retreat or any other team building event, should aim to convince workers that the company cares about them and has the ability to deliver on its promises. You can never spend too much on this.
Always aim to give your workers an unprecedented experience. While the team will often look forward to company events, too much predictability will get them bored and you could soon find some people skipping events that you have struggled so hard to organise.
Further the company’s agenda
The nature of every event should stem from the company’s vision. Always remember that it is not an event just for the sake of it, but one to ultimately help the institution get better. Knowing what agenda you are furthering will help you make a decision on the exact type of event you want to treat your workers.
You will be amazed by the length potential clients go to in the process of picking a company to work with. While a company event is an off-track event, many people will look at it as a way to judge your company. Especially when held in the public realm, ensure any event your company organises is something potential clients would approve of.
