The food service business is, above all else, a people-driven business. Behind every delicious food item lies an effectively managed web of relations, running from the executive suite to the farm to the service floor. When these relations are fostered within a positive, rewarding company culture, the benefits are tangible.
Higher quality products are put on the catering table, and innovative dining services are offered to the public. One proven way of strengthening company culture is through events.
What Is a Company Event?
A company event can be defined as a gathering that is sponsored by a company for its employees, business partners, clients, and/or prospective clients. An event can be large and hosted at a convention hall; or it can be a small, intimate affair like a meeting or holiday party. An event can be serious and instructional, or laid-back and fun.
Other examples of company meetings include trade shows, retreats, incentive programs, sports events, company milestones, board meetings, and shareholder meetings.
When planning an event, it’s important to keep company goals and directives in mind. Ultimately, every company event should serve to improve productivity.
