Having a difficult time deciding on what the theme of your corporate year-end function should be? Then don’t worry because you’re not alone as companies around the world are planning their events before December.

However, while other countries will be grappling with winter, here in South Africa, we will be in the midst of summer. So why not take advantage of the fantastic weather and host an outdoor event.

An outdoor event will be cheaper than hiring a venue and avoid sitting down for dinner and getting tipsy in front of your colleagues. To add a special touch, a year-end celebration that will be memorable for everyone is one that hosts a family fun day instead.

The children can enjoy an atmosphere akin to a circus, with rides, ice-cream, jumping castles, archery, and other fun activities. The adults can be treated to an afternoon of relaxation while being entertained by a live band of musicians. A fun-filled time with family and colleagues can generate a variety of benefits for your company.

Striking A Balance

The first and best benefit of hosting a family fun day as the year-end function will encourage not only focus on their responsibilities at work but also their families. Although finding such a balance is not always easy, a family fun day can validate your organisation’s support of employees between work and their personal life.

Showing Appreciation

A family day will be an excellent treat for the employees as well as their families. It is a show of appreciation of the hard work they have put in throughout the year and also demonstrates that the company is committed to their well-being.

Doing this will result in a morale-boost in the office and find more meaning to their work, leading to an increase in productivity.

Establish A Company Culture

A company that shows they care about their employees does wonders for its image in the community, which can lead to more clients. A family fun day allows everyone to bond and create new memories with each other.

It will demonstrate that the company not only cares for their families and their well-being but that personal relationships are of value. This will encourage employees to work for the company because they will view it as a caring business that is part of the family and is supportive of it.

These three points are just the tip of the iceberg on the benefits that hosting a family day as your company’s year-end function can bring. It will be a great way to show gratitude not only to the employees but the families that support them to deliver fantastic work.
