5 Welcome Back To Work Outdoor and Indoor Event Ideas

  1. The Back Together Bash

Thank your employees for persevering and continuing to be the stars of your company through all the challenges they’ve had to face. Take your event outside. Rent a movie screen and show a classic “getting the gang together again” movie like the Blues Brothers, Oceans 12, Space Cowboys—you get the idea!

Make it really special “movie night” with a sunset starting time. Employees will love it and remember it. And the camaraderie it generates will help them how good working together feels again.

  1. Back in the Game!

Welcome those employees back and get the spirit flowing with a “Back in the Game Night”. This works great inside at any time of day and makes a memorable event under the stars. Have games everywhere. Darts, miniature golf, basketball hoops, maybe bring in some carnival games.

Re-introduce employees one-at-a-time, NBA style, with dramatic music while an announcer sings their praises and commitment to the company. Have your CEO inspire everyone with a short “pep talk” of gratitude and rallying the troops with a “Game ON” close.

  1. Road Trip!

Your sales reps have been sitting uncomfortably at home, doing their best to sell from home. But how about a sales kick-off event the pumps them up to “hit the road, jacked” to get that sales engine humming again.

Hand out some cool car-related premium items to make their travels more comfortable and productive. Bring in a few classic cars for atmosphere, and have a band or DJ playing all the old “hot rod rock” songs by the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean.

  1. “We’re Back…Because You Had Ours

It’s an appreciation event for customers and partners who have always been there for you, including through pandemic shutdowns and other difficult times. Provide food and music at the event, and plenty of time to network and express gratitude.

And don’t forget meaningful promotional items that your key customers can take with them. An engraved desktop item with a meaningful message will strike the right chord.

  1. “Party Like All GET-OUT!”

Everybody’s been cooped up for too long. So why not hold a huge outdoor celebration and invite everyone else in your building, business park, or even your whole community? Maybe a clever invitation tells them to “GET OUT” – and stop by for food and fun.

The pandemic has been no picnic, so a real picnic would be a great way to celebrate as we being to get past it. Folks will appreciate gathering outside, and the messaging opportunity is perfect.
