You will be under pressure to form the best committee for hosting a corporate event. Unfortunately, you can’t pick people who won’t help make the event happen. Here are some tips to help determine who should be part of the committees to get things started.
Find people with experience
You might feel surprised to know that some employees have experience hosting a corporate event. You can ask these people to be part of your team since they know what to do during big activities. They won’t fold under pressure. They can even provide ideas that will help boost the initial plan.
You must be comfortable with the team
You should work with people whom you won’t have a problem with. You’re already under immense pressure to make the activity happen. The last thing you want is to deal with lazy or unfit individuals in your team. You also can’t afford to witness dramas because you’re with people who don’t contribute anything.
Assign committee heads
You don’t need to talk to everyone in your organizing team. Instead, you can contact the heads, and they will relay the information to the rest of the committee members. Then, if something goes wrong, you know the person to call. It’s better than identifying random people who have no clue about what’s happening.
Consider third-party companies
You don’t have to form a large organizing team if you can work with a third-party committee. For instance, you can work with a funfair stall for hire company if you want someone to deal with the details on your behalf. You can still get involved in the process, but you will have fewer things to do. You also don’t need a bigger team since the company you hired will do almost everything for the event to succeed.
Reward these volunteers
If you plan to tap employees to be a part of the committee, you can’t expect the company to pay them for the services. As such, allocating an amount to reward these people would be great. You can take them out on a wonderful dinner to express gratitude. You may also offer a paid day off. You will still host more corporate events in the future, so you don’t want to lose potential volunteers because you didn’t offer any reward.
Always be on top of everything
While you assign some people to do the tasks, you must still be on top of everything. You should know whom to ask if something doesn’t go as planned. You should also receive regular updates. The job description of every committee must be clear. Relay the correct information to everyone. Otherwise, it can be chaotic.
The success of the event relies on how you form your team. Take your time to understand the event you decide to host and determine who should help you. Finally, don’t forget to evaluate what happened once it’s over. You can learn from your mistakes and ensure that future events will be better than the last.
