Planning a Company Offsite

A company off-site is very common amongst the greatest leaders in business. The consist of providing the possibility of performing professional activities outside of the office in a new environment! What is a company offsite? Generally an offsite involves the entire company or the executives and managers of every department. These gatherings allow decision makers to tackle business-related issues and brainstorm with others in a new environment. Why is hosting an offsite important? Although off-sites vary in their location, duration and number of attendees, the importance of hosting these is always apparent. Most offsite meeting places are creatively designed to boost the team morale by aligning on company values and the mission for the quarter/year. The smallest change in atmosphere can have a big impact on an individual’s mood and attitude towards the tasks that lay ahead. It is essential for companies to make an effort in expanding their important meetings from a routine boardroom and explore offsite venues. Pro-tip: Planned can assist in all your event planning needs for hosting an offsite. Check it out! Placing your team in an entirely new environment for a day, weekend, or a week can yield a variety of positive results. These positive results are an outcome of breaking hierarchical ranks to enhance productivity. Employees feel more freedom in out-of-office environments to share their ideas, speak more openly, and collaborate when titles and office walls are not a factor. In addition, these off-sites offer an opportunity for everyone to bond more, by sharing stories and learning more about each other in a less tense environment. Additionally, it’s helpful for employees to bounce ideas off others who they may not typically hold meetings with or How to plan an offsite? Where: The destination for a company offsite can be determined by various factors. By taking into consideration: your goals, your office location, budget and where your attendees will be travelling from, you’ll be able to narrow down your options and connect with those venues and start making a plan. Some of the most common destinations for off-sites across North America include: San Francisco, Boston, Whistler, Calgary, Los Angeles, Austin, Montréal, New York City, and Vancouver. When: Most companies host an off-site at the beginning of the year or quarterly. The reason for this timing is because companies are establishing goals, planning new initiatives, and tackling business development problems during this time to promote vision alignment and to set OKRs. Hosting an offsite during this time allows teams to be clear on the desired result or be able to better approach the upcoming tasks in a more effective manner. How: Lastly, planning an off-site for your department or your company can seem overwhelming at first. However, through taking the appropriate steps, this planning process can be streamlined. First and foremost, define the purpose of the offsite. Generally it’s to resolve problems through creative solutions and set up each team for success. However, it’s up to you what the goal of this offsite is. From there, it’s about figuring out the logistics: guest list, location, accommodation, spending on location, and preparing material (hand…

Bring Your Team Together

It’s no secret that work models have shifted in the last two years, so it’s crucial to ensure that you’re still bringing your company together even if everyone is working remotely! With good intentions, clear visions, and the right resources, you can bring everyone together in 2022. Here are ways to bring your team together this year! Gather your team for a beach day! Quarterly team-building events Team building events are a fun way to bring team together for an opportunity to bond! You can plan these in a virtual, hybrid or in-person format, and the options are endless. By bringing your team together every quarter, everyone can build trust, instil strong communication, and share a laugh. Some ideas for team building activities include: taking a tequila tasting class, meditation workshop, or a homemade pasta class. Pro-tip: the Planned marketplace is filled with incredible event suppliers who specialize in team-building events. Milestone celebrations It’s vital to celebrate the wins together! As your company sets annual goals, host a celebration once that milestone has been achieved. These celebrations are a great way to show your employees how important it is to recognize how far you’ve come as a team. These celebrations should be fun, exciting and innovative! Some ideas for these celebrations: host a funny, light-hearted award ceremony, reserve a restaurant for a fancy dinner, or book a photography studio for new headshots and lunch! These celebrations are a great opportunity for managers to get creative. Change your teams’ environment by hosting an offsite. Off-site brainstorming Studies have shown that changing your environment can improve your ability to think of new and innovative ideas. Host a company or department-wide offsite so everyone can put their best brainstorming foot forward. Managers can bring a list of high level issues or problems that need solutions, and throughout your offsite, set up brainstorm sessions for everyone to participate. As much as this is about coming up with creative problem solving, this is also about an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other outside of the office, so feel free to set up daily lunch reservations for everyone to attend, or hire a professional to host a workshop (wine tasting, comedian, etc.). Monthly company-wide events Bringing the entire company together can seem like a tall mountain to climb, but with the appropriate planning it’s reasonable! A key component of establishing a strong company culture is done through bringing everyone together. For companies that are working remotely, finding the best time of day can be tricky, but sending out a survey can help find a good fit. These monthly company-wide events don’t need to be flashy, they can be informative while still being entertaining. The best approach for implementing any or all of these events is to start slow and small. There’s no need to start by booking a long weekend in Napa Valley or renting out an entire hotel in New York City. It’s best to plan these events out methodically and grow to scale at a pace that makes the most sense for your company. Most…

Advice from 4 Event Experts

The fresh start that the New Year provides can be exciting and rejuvenating. However, for event planners, it can also seem daunting. In hopes of sharing some words of wisdom, Planned spoke with four event planning experts to ask for their advice on how to prepare for 2022 and how they like to head into a new year. Whether you’re new to the world of events, or you’ve been in the industry for a while, each one of their mindsets will help you navigate this year. Andrew Roby Founder and Owner of Andrew Roby Events, listed in Event Industry’s ‘40 Under 40': “My advice would be to focus on areas of customer service that hinders your progress as a planner. With the increased demand for event planners over the last six months and the need for fast turnaround, so many still struggle to respond to inquiries in a timely manner. Determine your areas of weakness and find solutions to each of them. If you need help, consider a Virtual Assistant that can create a CRM for potential clients and can respond to inquiries. Lastly, find ways to give time back to yourself. Do things like creating templates for the things you do often. Are you always sending out a particular email? Create a template. Know who your ideal clients are and find ways to vet everyone before they hit the send button. Finding more ways to give time back to you so that you can focus on growing your company is certainly the one thing I am focusing on in 2022.” Anatashia Lewis Event Producer, Catering Manager, and Logistics Queen with over 10+ years of experience: “2022 is the year of flexibility and resilience. We never thought our industry would be affected so heavily, but as planners, it is ingrained in us to pivot. It is vital that we don’t trap our minds or creativity into one idea or one plan. Who would have thought the world would shut down in the midst of planning 2020, 2021, and 2022 events? We have to remain fluid, knowing that the world and our industry is constantly evolving. Creativity flows when we loosen our grip, embrace change and invite our minds to think freely. Resilience: For me it looks like resting and then pushing through. Event planning is one of the most stressful jobs, which lacks fair pay at times, and can affect you physically, mentally and emotionally. I encourage all planners to take inventory of their self-care practices this year and beyond. Reclaiming your rest instills resilience from within.” Michelle Norwood Michelle Norwood adding final touches for an event at the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum. Owner of Michelle Norwood Events, and named ‘Top Planner in The World’ by HARPERS BAZAAR, ‘Best Wedding Planners in the U.S., Canada, and Overseas’ by VOGUE, and ‘Top Planner’ by Martha Stewart: “I like to start my year strong. I take a look at everything on my calendar and begin working on the logistics of each event accordingly. Staying ahead of the game is the best way to not get caught up in the madness once the seasons begin. I also begin…

Event Planning Tactics for 2022

If the past two years of living in a global pandemic have taught event planners anything, it’s to plan for the unexpected. With new variants popping up and uncertainty about when COVID-19 will depart the scene for good, event planners are becoming accustomed to having a backup plan as a necessary part of ensuring an event goes off without a hitch.  As we enter 2022, now is the perfect time to create your own calendar of events expected to take place this year. To kick off the New Year, Planned created a helpful list of five tactics that you can bring along with you. Here are 5 important planning tactics to take with you along the way:   Test all the technology First and foremost, find technology solutions that suit the size and scope of the event. It’s best to do some shopping before you come to a decision. Schedule demos, ask questions, and play around with hardware and tools yourself. This will ensure both you and your team will be comfortable with the platform on the day of the event. No matter how comfortable you are with your tech team or their level of expertise, always rehearse and test. That way everyone knows what to expect, and the back-end of your streamed event can run as seamlessly as possible.  Establish a strong event purpose There’s an endless amount of virtual, hybrid, and in-person events happening every day. To ensure that your guests are engaged and entertained, a great event planning tactic is to make sure that you develop a strong purpose for your event. Here are some great reasons to host a corporate event: team building, onboarding new team members, welcoming a new CEO, or celebrating a company milestone. Whichever reason you and your team commit to, ensure that this is shared via your marketing and communications, so that all your guests know what to expect and what to look forward to!  Have a back up plan with a budget that can support it  Whether you’re hosting an in-person, virtual or hybrid event, it’s always important to have contingency plans at the ready. On the off-chance that the Wi-Fi cuts, an entertainer cancels, or new restrictions are put in place, having a shortlist of Plan B's can help you avoid last minute panic. Some suggestions: schedule a fill-in entertainer, create a virtual event agenda in case the in-person event can no longer happen, have a ‘technical difficulties’ slide available if a technical glitch occurs. There are many ways to plan for the unexpected, but the best approach is just to have one. By creating a checklist template, you'll remember every task. Create an event checklist  A list a day keeps the stress away. A thoroughly prepared event checklist breaks down your master plan into itemized details. By knowing every aspect of the tasks at hand – from preparing the marketing, sending out invitations, booking event suppliers, and creating the budget – this checklist allows you and your team to…
