Company picnics are a great opportunity to let your staff members know you care about them and their families. Company picnics should be used as a vehicle to let staff members and their families know that the company values their hard work and commitment. Therefore, the company branded gifts provided should be thoughtful and of high quality. A picnic is a time to celebrate company success, enjoy the warm weather and socialize with co-workers in an environment conducive to developing team and group cohesion.
This is the perfect opportunity to reward staff members for their hard work and show their families and guests that you truly value their hard work and dedication. So put some serious thought into high quality branded gift ideas. Most staff members, ideally, want something they can use in every day life.

Personalizing and customization – Do your research, What do people like? What are their interests? What would people use? If appropriate, you can consult with department managers to determine what gifts would work for the staff members. For example, if a majority of members enjoy the local baseball team (The RED SOCKS, thank you) then have co-branded towels made with Boston and baseball with company logo?? Taking the extra effort to customize picnic gifts in this manner makes employees feel like their individuality and hard work is recognized and appreciated.
Everyone has differing opinions regarding company picnics. Many love them, and many see them as an obligation. Therefore, the more that we can make them fun, entertaining and rewarding events, the more positive results you will retain.
