Make the World a Better Place Starting With Your Company’s Holiday Party
Whether your goal is to get your company involved with causes in your community this holiday season or make an impact on a larger scale, it can be daunting to nail down an organization or activity that truly resonates with the values of your business. If your group has never participated in a charitable event before, then combining it with your company’s holiday party can be a great introduction.
Fortunately, our team has been helping companies plan for these types of events for years. From the initial selection of an activity or cause, to aligning with an existing social responsibility program and planning the actual event, WCF Events can be your guide through the entire process. Let’s take a look at what you can expect.
Choosing the Right Charitable Event
Maybe you already know you want to build bikes for kids in need, or you think putting care packages together for service men and women is more your speed. Perhaps you have no idea what kind of activity makes sense for your team. Whichever way the needle moves, we can help you evaluate various causes based on information about your company.
We feel it’s important for your choice to be accepted by your group, because it will motivate them to attend the event and get them excited to participate. Many companies choose to make the charitable event a part of their company holiday party, and it’s a nice way to give back during this time of year.
Combining With Your Company Holiday Party
So we’ve talked about the idea of putting the charitable event together with your holiday event, but what does that look like? For some companies, it means starting the party with the charitable portion, and then following it up with dinner, drinks or a more interactive event. For others, the charitable event is a standalone event like the Secret Santa Charity Scavenger Hunt where participants collect items for families in need. Again, we have loads of experience helping clients figure out the logistics of planning and execution, so you don’t have to do it alone.
Getting Inspired to Serve
By now, you might be ready to dream up tons of winning ideas for your team. To get you going, here are a few of the charitable events we’ve worked up for our clients:
- Build a Friend Stuffed Animals Program
- Secret Santa Charity Scavenger Hunt
- Mini Golf Course Design (Food Pantry Charity)
- Double Goal Events for a Cause (Charity + Team Building)
Of course, if you have an activity in mind already, we can help you bring it to life.
Feeling Good and Coming Together
Obviously, doing something to help others comes with the personal benefits of serving a need and making a difference in the world. With charitable events, the benefits are two-fold, because your entire team feels a sense of accomplishment not only in serving, but also in coming together as a team to get it done. Charitable activities have a way of bringing down the barriers you might have at the workplace and uniting employees in doing something focused on others.
