Corporate games help business organizations achieve a variety of objectives. When employees get together to play games in a setting like a company retreat, they can develop as teams, interact with people in other departments and build better relationships between managers and employees. Each corporate game is designed to help employees relax and have fun at work.
A scavenger hunt or treasure hunt is an activity that requires some planning for the party or retreat host. Plan a hunt based on your location that will keep team members occupied for the desired amount of time -- try to make the hunt challenging but not too difficult. If you are planning a large party for a corporate group, you can even hire a team-building company to plan the hunt for you.
An alternative to planning corporate games exclusively for in-house employees is to organize one or more sports teams to compete at a corporate games event. For example, Salt Lake County organizes summer and winter corporate games each year. Sample summer events include: a 5K run, basketball, billiards, bowling, golf, softball and ultimate frisbee. Combining recreational activities like billiards with physical sports like softball means corporate employees get involved in events they prefer regardless of their athletic ability. As people from different parts of the company come together, a new company dynamic evolves in support of the teams.
Some companies hire a professional entertainment group to come and provide gaming fun to corporate participants. For example, the Ultimate Game Show is a high-end entertainment company that puts on a professional-quality game show for large meetings. The excitement of a real set, a professional announcer and a realistic game show format suits almost any audience. As a client of this type of service, you can arrange in advance for custom materials to be incorporated into the game for your corporate event.
