Consider recruiting a team of employees to own and manage elements of the event. ENCOURAGE EARLY INPUT. If you're running different activities, ask employees to vote on preferred options using smart tools like SurveyMonkey. RECRUIT EMPLOYEES AS HOSTS OR FACILITATORS. Assign individuals with responsibilities so they can contribute and help bridge the gap if you have a 'them and us' culture. DATE & TIME. Will it be a lunch event or an all day affair? How does it fit into standard timings and commitments? Can it be combined with year-end announcements or key performance updates? VENUE & THEME. If you're having an away day, choose somewhere that reflects your brand and the theme of your event. TASTY Name it with an intriguing title. BEER SIGNAGE & COLLATERAL. Brand Guidelines Make sure that promotional material is suitably branded and compliments each element. Keep in mind your brand guidelines. CREATE A BUZZ!
