Tips For Organizing The Office Vacation
If you have been put in charge of organizing your office vacation, you will have a difficult job ahead of you. You need to keep a few things in mind. The reason for your office to have a paid trip for the entire staff is to reward them for work well done on the one hand and on the other hand, it is to help them to bond as a team, get to know each other and to strengthen their connections as a team. The office may be paying for the entire vacation but it is by no means a free gift to the staff. Every bit of money that an office spends is an investment that they make and they expect a return of investment. Therefore, you as the organizer of the office trip needs to make sure that the office receives exactly what they are expecting off the vacation.
Working according to a tight budget
One of the biggest challenges that you will face when organizing the office vacation is working within the budget you have been given which is no doubt going to be a lot less that you need for you trip. Therefore, you will need to find ways of budgeting and spending a lot less than needed. One way to do this is to organize effective corporate team bonding in Singapore that will also help save money. One example is to have a cook out where the staff will have to cook food in teams together. This can work as an activity and also will work to help save a lot of money as you will not have to buy the meals from a restaurant for that entire meal for the whole staff.
In addition to the activities that you have on vacation, it is important that you also continue to have workplace team building activities when you get back to the office because this is a continuous process.
You will also need to calculate how much it is going to cost for transportation, for food for your entire team and for accommodation. One of the best ways to save money is to hire a house for a day or two instead of hiring hotel rooms which will cost a lot of money. The house will also give you the privacy that you need to have your activities, be as loud as you want and to have as much fun as you want. Without rules and restrictions like you would have in a hotel where there are other guests.
