April 10th, 2022 by dayat No comments »

Corporate Sport Events are those events that are organized by the organization especially for their employees, who actively take part in the events.

These sports events can be indoor or outdoor depending on the type of event. The employees compete with one another or in a group based on departmental status. These events help the employees in being motivated, have a healthy relationship with colleagues and enjoy the work and the workplace they are involved to.

Corporate sport events usually take place during the winter season. The idea time to launch these sports events is between December and January.

Most of the organizations term these events as “ANNUAL SPORTS MEET” or “ANNUAL SPORTS DAY”.

Corporate sports day focuses on 3 to 4 different types of well organized sporting event, and is the most effective outdoor team building activities. Team building in a sports environment encourages fun, interaction and bonding, and allows for maximum participation by all involved.

These sports event can be made more interesting by creating different sports houses among an organization. Each of these houses or groups will consist of members from different departments. This will only help in making the employees become familiar with employees from departments other than his/her.

This introduction of houses will also help in introducing an interhouse challenge or competition. The trophy will be provided to the winning house by the organization and for one year that house will remain the champions unless the next meet.

Believe me, this is enormous fun, just like the school days!

Now sports like Cricket, Football, and Basketball are common games but due to their popularity are always acceptable. These games are all long duration games and require a minimum of 5 players to play. But some games like The Tug of War, Penalty Shootout, and Sack Race are very interesting and take less time to finish. Other than this, Breaking the Clay Pot, Hit the Bull’s Eye, etc are some interesting and popular corporate sports games that can be played by a single player.

An Interhouse Quiz Competition can also be organized. One facility of this event is that, all the created house can participate in the event at a common time and competition will be among all the houses. A great competitive challenge!

These events may run for a maximum of two days other wise it gets boring and tiresome.

Another important thing that should be kept in mind is the arrangement for refreshments. There have to be a proper arrangement for Lunch Packets as well as some snacks and soft drinks. Also, it is advised to have a memento awarded to all those who take part in the events. This not only will please the employees, but also will encourage others
