If you own a small business or are in human resources or management, then you know how important employee morale is. When employees are satisfied and feel like their employers care about them, the quality of work that they produce improves and they are more likely to stay at their current job. One easy way to improve employee morale is through corporate events such as employee holiday parties or getaways. When planning these events, however, one must be careful: corporate events can make or break employee morale. A poorly planned event can have the opposite effect of what was intended. On the other hand, a well-planned corporate event can show your employees that are have put thought and effort into keeping them happy.
Location, location, location
When planning an event, one of the most important factors, to consider is the venue. There are many different levels and types of corporate event venues, ranging from laid-back spa-like environments to more active or adventurous settings. Rising travel and fuel costs have put a damper on the once-thriving corporate event planning market. It’s no longer feasible for many companies to arrange and pay for transportation for their many employees to travel to destination corporate event venues. What’s the solution? Bring the venue to you. A new trend in corporate event planning is the corporate theme party.
Corporate Event Themes
One of the most popular and fun company event ideas is the casino night. A casino night party is designed to simulate the experience of taking your employees out for a night in a Las Vegas casino. These themed parties include cocktail waitresses, poker tables, and all of the other sights and sounds of a Las Vegas casino. Why Las Vegas?
For one, it’s one of the most popular destinations in America for corporate event venues. Over 36 million people visit Las Vegas each year, and poker is one of the main reasons Las Vegas is chosen. Over 40 million people in America play poker regularly, and more than 10 million Americans have played poker in a casino during the last year. By throwing your employees a casino-themed corporate party, you’re bringing them into the exciting world of casino poker. Many of your employees will walk away from a casino party as a winner, and those that weren’t will be anxiously awaiting next year’s casino party.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to show your employees you care about them. Forget traveling to those expensive and far away corporate event venues; bring the casino to them!
