Living in Southern California the next number of months will be the perfect picnic time of year. So if you haven’t already started planning your corporate staff appreciation picnic then now’s the time to start.

The Perfect Picnic Time

Company picnics are a great way to show employee appreciation and to improve workplace satisfaction, if it is done right. Forget about potluck and let Rotisserie Affair cater your next fun gathering that leaves employees feeling refreshed, appreciated, and motivated to do their best at work. To help make sure that you have the perfect picnic time, here are some points to ponder.

  1. Make the picnic interactive

Instead of going to an amusement park where employees naturally gravitate to the small group of friends they have at the office, make the perfect picnic time by holding an old fashion picnic where everyone has a chance to mingle. A picnic is a great time for employees from different departments to meet and get to know each other, which can lead to improved teamwork and productivity at work.

  1. Show support for all types of families

Employees that work for companies that encourage a healthy balance between the job and family tend to be healthier, happier, and more productive. A company picnic is a great time to include employees’ family members, and show that the business values this balance. It is important for management to stress that all types of families are invited, regardless of their makeup.

  1. Keep the playing field even

It is important that everyone participates in the games and activities, managers and staff. When management shows that they can laugh at their inability to hit a ball and employees can gain respect and improve self esteem when they score a winning run. This also helps to open lines of communication, and provide plenty of laughs when everyone is back at work.

  1. “Picnic” should not be taken literally

Throwing a company picnic is a way to thank employees, and this does not mean that they should spend part of the day in the kitchen preparing a dish for the potluck meal. While it is more cost effective to have a potluck picnic, it does not really show employees that they are appreciated. Having the picnic catered not only makes employees feel special it can also improve the overall mood of the gathering.

  1. Don’t forget about special diets

Include plenty of options for vegetarians and employees who might be on a restricted diet or trying to eat healthier. This could include veggie burgers, fresh fruit and vegetables, along with pasta and salads. This will ensure that everyone feels included, which is important when you are trying to show your appreciation.

  1. Create a memento of the day

It is easy to create a memento that everyone can enjoy. One of the simplest ways is to create a hash tag for the picnic and collect all of the Instagram pictures into a fun memory book. Keep it in the break room for employees to look at together, and it can even help improve the attitude at work.
