Company event is any event that is organized by any employing company or business to its staffs or employees. Similarly, corporate entertainment is such events that provide entertainment to the target audience. Corporate entertainment is very important for a business to carry-on and is a good means of increasing productivity in the company. These private events are generally grand and require a lot of resources – money and manpower, but in the end, it is worth the effort.
The general advantages of corporate entertainment can be boiled down to 5 simple points which are explained in order below:
1. Provides refreshment
Human beings are not machines and need refreshment. In fact, even machines need some time out. Like diesel-engines need regulator from time to time to maximize performance, humans need time for refreshment as well. And yes, companies generally have serious work load and the employees are, figuratively not literally, machines. The long office hours and stress from work can easily be relieved by some entertaining event that refreshes the mind. I remember one day my computer was not responding, I was multitasking heavily, and a refresh button was what it needed to make it work again.
2. Maximize performance
What is actually needed to maximize performance? Let us take examples of a machine again this one more time. Why does an F-1 racer pause for some time after some laps? Doesn’t he have to win the race? Won’t the pause cost him valuable time? The answer is simple. After juicing his car to its limit it may underperform so giving it a break to fix things up maximizes performance. Even though the maintenance may take time, the performance boost it gives cuts time in the future. Entertaining the employees provides this boost in performance by acting as the “maintenance”. These events increase enthusiasm in the workers.
3. Increase bonding
Workers and employees are always in a lot of stress. Due to this, they may not have time to socialize enough. A boss might think that its better this way but actually a level of social activity among the workers is necessary for efficient work activity. People can work effectively when they bond with each other. Let’s say, a geek works in an office and needs to pass on some files to beautiful lady besides him. Of course, he will eventually pass it on but the level of discomfort and inefficiency hinders the overall work. When working together; ideas are shared, mistakes become much clearer, solutions become simple and the office can run smoothly. Events organized by the company provide a chance for the employees to socialize and works as a great team building activity.
It all comes down to one single question – is it beneficial for the company? Simply Yes! A whole group of people that are physically, emotionally, and socially activated surely increases the rate at which the work is being done and also the quality of the work being done which increases the productivity of the company.
