If there is one thing corporate employees absolutely love, it is themed parties. With the pandemic leaving many of us longing for social interaction, such parties are truly a godsend. Of course, this doesn’t mean that planning for parties is an easy thing. There are a lot of considerations to be made to create a successful themed corporate party, and one of those considerations is already in the name: the theme.
Are you here today looking for theme ideas for your corporate event to guarantee a fun time for everyone? If so, here are some ideas you should definitely give a go:
1. Corporate Murder Mystery
If you don’t know what murder mystery is, go ahead and Google it. It’s a murder-mystery-themed game in which the guests, who are undercover detectives, try to find out who the murderer is by talking to each other and solving actual clues to the crime. It can be a little creepy, but it is quite fun and leaves a very memorable impression on everyone who partakes in it.
This is also a great way to get to know your colleagues better, and all of you can have a fun time. You can let your employees wear costumes or dress them up to add more to the game’s feeling of mystery. The great thing about this theme is that there are a lot of props that you can work with, and a lot of things can be improvised as well, making the event incredibly unique!
2. Mini Olympics
Another way to create a fun party atmosphere is by adding a mini-Olympics event. People love sports, and if your employees are tired of sitting around in the office all day, this is a good way to get them to participate and interact with each other. You can have events like a triathlon, an obstacle course, or a golf game. There are even shooting games for a bit of thrill if you want to include those.
A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of participating in such an event, but you can actually make it easier for them. For example, you can have a mini Olympic booth where you give them basic skills first, like the basics of a run or the basics of a swim. This way, people can still have fun even if they are not athletic.
During the event, you can also give out prizes for the first, second, and third winners, making the event even more exciting.
3. Casino Night
We’ve all heard of the casino, but have you ever seen a corporate casino? It’s a simplified version of the real thing, where the things you need to gamble with are not real money or assets. You can have a lot of activities like poker games, blackjack, roulette, and even a lucky number machine. You can put chips and other props on a table and make it look like a real casino.
In addition to these activities, you can also have employees give short talks about their jobs during the game. This can make the party more fun and interactive. You can also have fun themed music while you are playing the game.
Themed corporate events are great ways to bring each other closer together, and they make the workplace a wonderfully friendly place to be. It is hard to have fun in an office full of bureaucratic policies, forms to fill out, and deadlines. If your employees are feeling a bit low, throw a themed party and let them enjoy themselves again! That said, if you are out of ideas on what theme to pick, consider the themes above. Of course, there are a ton more ideas out there that you can definitely try out, so be sure to get creative!
