Could your workplace morale use a boost? Does it seem like there’s a lack of energy on the job? With Football in full swing, there’s never been a better reason or season to get your employees’ heads in the game!
Try organizing a corporate tailgating event. Not only will this fun activity boost employee morale, but it will also act as a catalyst for your employees to interact together as a group. They work hard, so once in a while, it’s great to get your staff out of the office for a company-wide celebration.
Get to the game early and set up your tailgating gear in the parking lot. Incorporate custom tailgating items imprinted with your company’s logo to give everyone a sense of pride and belonging. Items like custom foam fingers are great for game day. Their light weight makes them neither cumbersome nor inconvenient to carry around like other promos may be, and when your home team gets that pigskin in the end zone, it’s the perfect item to wave wildly in the air!
Of course there will be employees who aren’t huge sports fans, but that’s ok! Members of your staff who aren’t big into football can still have a good time at the tailgate. They can enjoy grilled food, ice-cold beverages, tasty snacks, great conversation, and even the traditional tailgating games like cornhole and ladder golf. On top of that, tailgating is family-friendly and fun for all ages, so husbands, wives, and kids can have an opportunity to come out and meet your coworkers.
With spirits high and inter-office relationships strengthened, productivity is sure to skyrocket. Not only will your employees have a great time at the game, but they’ll take from it the feeling that their employer cares. They will be excited to work for a company that treats its employees like a team.
