Creative Corporate Event Ideas Your Employees Will Love

Corporate events your employees will love have never been so important. Many remote workers are feeling disconnected since the pandemic.  That’s why it’s the perfect time to plan a corporate event for your company. In an increasingly digital and busy world, corporate office parties are inclusive, entertaining, and also help bond your coworkers and employees for a more cohesive workplace.

 But we know that as a business owner, it can be difficult to plan a corporate event that everyone in your company will enjoy. Skip the boring, bland hotel conference room for your next event. 

We have the perfect solution for you: host your next corporate event at Wintrust Sports Complex in Bedford Park! Our facility is the furthest thing from a boring, corporate atmosphere. We love hosting events of all different kinds

What to Look for in a Corporate Event Venue

There are several characteristics to look for in a corporate event venue in order to host the perfect event. 

Team Building Options 

One of the goals of many corporate events is to increase bonding and a more cohesive workplace. At Wintrust Sports Complex, we can host team-building activities that your employees will love. And if you’re not so much a sports-y company? No problem! We are much more than sports. 

Brand-New Location

Skip the boring venues that all your employees have visited time and time again. Wintrust Sports Complex is a brand-new facility that most of your employees probably haven’t visited yet, which makes it much more exciting.

Every company event needs a large space to host its get-togethers. Our 116,000-square foot venue has all the space you need, no matter the size of your company. Our facility also has eight high school hardwood basketball courts, 16 NCAA volleyball courts, one championship court, a redemption arcade, laser tag, an esports gaming room, and flexible meeting and event spaces.

Company Party Ideas Your Employees Will Love

Some people love planning parties, and for others, it’s a tedious task. We have plenty of company party ideas to help you plan your next corporate event. 

Use Your Budget Wisely But Generously

Know your budget, but don’t hesitate to use it! Oftentimes, your company party is the time of year when you show your appreciation to your valuable employees. You want to ensure that they feel as appreciated as your budget allows. Especially if it’s the first company-wide event you are able to throw in a few years, it’s worth spending the money to make it special! Team building is one of the most important investments you’ll make as a business owner. 

Make It Entertaining 

Wherever you choose to have your venue, the key to a fun corporate event for your employees is to offer some kind of entertainment. Whether it’s to hang out in our arcade, play a game of basketball, try some laser tag, or simply kick back with some drinks and cocktails, make sure you have your event somewhere with entertaining options! This is where the traditional hotel venue often falls short. 

Choose a Fun Venue

If you want all of your employees to RSVP “yes” to your next corporate event, the key is to choose an exciting venue. Wintrust Sports Complex in Bedford Park is a new and exciting sports facility unlike anything else in the world! 

Set a Sports Theme

A sports-themed corporate event is a great way to help your employees bond and have fun together. Or, if your company is not that into athletics, you can play virtual games together in our esports lounge! The options are endless at Wintrust Sports Complex.
