With much of the world opening back up, people are craving the face-to-face connections they did not experience as much during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. People are traveling, businesses are balancing out their remote schedules, and people are driven to be together.
Corporate events have always been an important part of a strong strategy for engagement with customers, prospects, and employees. A great event can leave a lasting impression on both the attendees and the organizers. Here are 4 ways corporate events can help your business elevate your engagement efforts across all audiences.
Events Bring People Together
Quite simply, events bring people together. Getting folks together in the same space, talking and interacting, adds a dimension of human connection we’ve missed for the last couple of years. Give your attendees an opportunity to network face-to-face instead of online. They may forge deeper connections that way. Or give them an opportunity to listen to a speaker from the audience instead of on a video call, creating opportunities for engagement they wouldn’t necessarily get otherwise.
Public Recognition Works
When considering corporate events as part of your employee recognition and engagement strategy, consider how much of an impact it makes to celebrate your team’s achievements publicly. When you give award recipients the chance to be honored in front of their peers and leadership, you can easily increase the impact of that award.
Putting together a corporate event designed specifically to celebrate your employees shows them your company is invested in their success. With a recognition event, you dedicate time away from work to focus on telling your employees how much they mean to you. That goes a long way.
Impress Your Customers, Prospects, and Employees
A well-managed corporate event will make a lasting impression on your audience. When you work with a partner like Xceleration to pull out all the stops to impress your attendees, they take notice. The excellent execution of your corporate event will reflect positively on your business. Corporate events offer a fantastic opportunity to curate an incredible experience for your stakeholders. You can show your appreciation, show off your products and solutions, and build your brand in one fell swoop.
Tangible Items Create Trophy Value
Trophy Value is one of the core concepts of Xceleration’s employee recognition philosophy. Meaningful, tangible rewards strengthen your employees’ association between their reward and their work. When you apply this concept to your customer loyalty events, the effect is the same. Give your attendees tangible options, items they can take home with them, and things they can interact with, so that when they go home, they associate those items and that experience with your brand.
