In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, companies of all sizes have been faced with the need to shift focus and operations rapidly. If you’re in-office, a bit of desk shuffling has become necessary to ensure proper social distancing. Many companies have even elected to ditch the office space and go completely virtual. Either way, another fallen domino is the company-sponsored, “crowd-intensive” events. Whether a corporate vacation or an off-campus company meeting, many businesses have had to reschedule corporate events.
We hope everyday life gets back on track towards normalcy soon. Once it does, you’ll hopefully be ready and able to put together that company getaway once again without fear.
At Deer Creek Golf Club, we’ve done our fair share of hosting corporate events. As a South Florida country club, we miss the fun times just as much as you do, but we look forward to catering to your business’ needs as soon as we can. If you’re looking for tips on rescheduling corporate events, we’ve put together a helpful list of ways to get things in order for your next gathering.
Have a Few Plans Ready to Go
If 2020 showed us anything, it’s that we never know what’s around the corner. It’s not ideal, but flexibility is key to navigating the task of rescheduling corporate events during a pandemic. You need to have a few dates and plans set out for your event. If you’re unable to be flexible with the date and time for a certain event idea, it might be best to further postpone until the world is a bit less volatile. The last thing you want to do is splurge in advance for a rescheduled corporate event only to have to cancel it – again.
Virtual Happy Hour
If you’ve been among the many companies who elected to call your living room an office for the past few months, there’s no reason to leave the couch for a corporate event and risk your health and safety. Hop on a Zoom call with the team and host your own virtual happy hour. Put together a themed dress code or distribute the necessary pieces to pull off a murder mystery dinner party. Save the big expensive outings for after the pandemic has passed. There’s plenty of teambuilding to be done virtually.
Create a Safety Plan
If you’re ready to get your small office back together for a corporate golf outing, you need to prepare for all the safety protocols that will need to be taken. Limit the person-to-person interactions, keep disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer handy, and—please—wear a mask. We miss the fun outings with the office as much as anyone, but the most important thing must be the safety of your employees.
