Birthday of the organization
Every person has an important day in his life when he was born. Such day is and at any firm - a legal date of creation. The leaders together with the team strive to make the organization's birthday memorable for the employees. This requires a corporate culture and the need to create a single team for performing complex tasks. Often, the celebration involves clients, the media, higher authorities and business partners. Round dates and anniversaries are celebrated on a grand scale. This is a kind of report on the work done for a long period, a parade of achievements and merits. Ordinary birthdays can be more modest and turn into an ordinary banquet, a conference or a picnic for employees.
Preparing for the celebration
Celebrating the birthday of the organization involves preparing for it. Planning a celebration begins with the appointment of the day - this is not necessarily a legal date, and determining the scope of the event.
Direct preparation begins two to three months before the cherished number. It should include:
• choice of venue (own room, rent of a hall, restaurant or camp site);
• determining the composition of participants;
• drawing up an estimate of the expenditure of funds;
• organization of preparation of rewarding or honoring the best employees (identification of employees' data, preparation of motions for encouragement, purchase of memorable gifts);
• preparation of video materials, stands, banners and other visual information that requires time;
• drawing up a scenario plan for the event;
• Order of registered souvenirs for the participants of the holiday.
Festive decoration of the room
Creating a positive attitude contributes to competent design. The logo of the company must necessarily occupy an honorable place, but it can be recreated with the help of balloons or three-dimensional figures. At any time of the year, natural flowers are appropriate. They can decorate tables or a scene. In large rooms, artificial flowers will be required, which is expedient to decorate the room along the perimeter, using large floor vases or special supports.
On the organization's birthday for the interest of the whole team, it is desirable to prepare art objects with photos of employees. Everything depends on imagination. It can be a chandelier, a bookstand, just a stand. You can prepare a special banner. Often it is made with slits for the head. Employees can arrange a photo session by inserting faces into the slits and taking photos against its background. It is easy to prepare a photobooth with the placement of the logo or company name. All interested persons can be photographed in it during the holiday.
Polls show that employees are often treated with a certain amount of indifference by the company's birthdays. Believing that they are only needed by the company's management. This is due to the weak involvement of the team in the preparation and conduct of the event. On the birthday of the firm, in addition to the banquet and the delivery of souvenirs, the entertainment program should be well thought out for the staff, taking into account age and gender characteristics. It can be:
• Concert program using the creative potential of participants;
• short or light show, prepared according to the scenario of employees;
• The thematic quest;
• master classes in any spectacular areas;
• intellectual or sports games;
• professional competition with elements of humor.
There are many ways to turn congratulation to the company into a themed buffet, which will be a logical continuation of the idea of celebration. Among the most striking ideas are:
• special design of the table using branded napkins, dishes, holders with interesting photos from the history of the company;
• use of dishes prepared by skilled employees;
• decorating the table with drawings in the form of friendly cartoons, spread out throughout the table (if possible, the impression can be strengthened by special illumination);
• Serving the table in accordance with the special traditions of the organization;
• a festive themed cake (in the form of a company logo or a date from the day of its foundation).
Celebrating the birthday of the company
And what about the presentations? Noting the birthday of the organization, guests give gifts and celebrate the birthday. The culprit of this celebration is the leader and those who headed it earlier. The rule of good tone is a festive congratulation to the company addressed to these persons by the collective. During the entertainment program for them you can arrange a show with the "arrival" of famous persons or the delivery of congratulatory telegrams. An important moment to celebrate the birthday of the organization is the creation of an organizing committee for the preparation of the event, which can be held both on its own and with the involvement of professional organizations engaged in the celebration. Everything depends on the budget of the company and the availability of talented employees.
Birthday organization with the invitation of guests requires compliance with ethical standards during their meeting, seating and participation in the event. The holiday will be held at a high level, if the employees who are playing the role of hospitable hosts in relation to the invited are identified.
