There’s nothing like gathering your employees and their families for a day of sunshine, great food from your favorite Issaquah food truck and fun games. In our last blog, we gave you a couple of important reasons why you should host a company picnic, so if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, now is the time! Keep reading to learn about more reasons to host a company picnic:

#3. It will boost morale.

When you put in all of that hard work and dedication every day, it’s understandable that you would need a break every once in a while, and your employees are no exception! Having a day of fun, food and sun will allow your employees to let their hair down and have a good time, which can be incredibly rejuvenating. After the picnic, your employees will feel grateful, happy to be at your company and ready to give it their all at work.

#4. It demonstrates your commitment. 

Your employees know about the time, money and effort it takes to throw a picnic for your entire company, and they also know that you don’t have to do so. Throwing a picnic will demonstrate your commitment to the company, your employees and their families.

#5. It improves teamwork.

It can be difficult to get to know people at work because you are spending the majority of your time focusing on the task at hand. The more your employees know and like one another, the better they will work as a team. This will also improve the culture at work. Since your employees will have a chance to get to know each other, they will be more inclined to ask questions, give honest feedback and give help when needed.
