Exceptionally well-planned Amarillo corporate events hold huge potential to increase productivity. And by understanding what value your event can deliver, you are able to design a plan to unlock these gains. Everything from your custom menu to venue choice can have a big impact on guests. But before you dive into these fun elements, you need to define your goals and what you expect to get out of your event.
So let’s start by exploring the benefits of hosting a corporate event that is carefully designed to surpass the expectations of guests and management.
What Value Do Corporate Events Provide?
Build Valuable Relationships
With the right floor plan and food service, co-workers and management mix and mingle. This breaks down communication barriers and opens the door to greater teamwork between departments. The dinner table is a great place for those who have merely exchanged electronic messages to connect on a deeper level, while cocktail hour is ideal for breaking the ice at first-time meet and greets.
Added bonus: Corporate events are a prime opportunity for new employees to further integrate into the company—expediting their learning curve.
Awards are a great way to inspire employees to continue to set high goals and achieve great things. While garnering such recognition boosts esteem and drive for continued success, co-workers are also motivated when they see such incentives. In fact, studies show that incentives such as awards programs have a plethora of benefits, including improved employee performance and engagement.
Increase Brand Recognition
According to Eventbrite, one of the best ways to increase brand awareness is by hosting a live event. The face-to-face interactions and opportunity to show your brand in its finest light are huge assets. But even a closed event can bolster your reputation when you post on social media or employees rave about their experience. A flawless event that utilizes the latest ideas and trends reinforces a company brand that is on the cutting edge.
Tip: Events that benefit local charities are a great way to give back to the Amarillo community and reinforce your company’s values. With our Amarillo catering company getting its start from The Bivins Foundation, we couldn’t be more passionate about helping you plan a tremendously successful event that also helps the community.
Boost Employee Morale
It is well-documented that employee appreciation events pay huge dividends, including improved employee retention. According to Tom Rath and Donald Clifton, “The number-one reason most Americans leave their jobs is that they don’t feel appreciated.” But we have the employee appreciation ideas you need to prevent this! Something as simple as a thank-you breakfast is a great way to show employees how much they are valued.
Tip: Any type of corporate event can be used to boost spirits. Any chance you get to treat employees to an amazing experience complete with delicious food and great entertainment is an opportunity to boost morale.
Increase Personal Investment
When your company comes together to celebrate accomplishments, milestones and future goals, employees take greater personal responsibility for corporate success. So get the party started and fuel them with nutritious food that helps them recharge so they return to the office with all the energy they need to act on their increased drive.
Inspire Creative Thinking
Artists are known to go to incredible locations in search of inspiration for their latest work. And unique Amarillo venues and innovative dishes can spark the same creativity in employees. Chef Rocky Dunnam loves to put his own twist on classic food so it bursts with flavor and a hint of Southern charm. Working with such talented culinary artists, your custom menu will demonstrate to employees that creativity can bring even the most trusted ideas to a new level.
Our expert planners love to help companies surpass their event goals. The process starts with getting to know you and your event vision and develops into a custom-designed menu and event plan.
