Recognising the Efforts of Moovers and Shakers in Corporate Australia

As the EOFY (End of Financial Year) approaches, it’s time to plan for celebrations that not just mark business achievements but also honour the driving forces behind such success. 

Amongst them, there is a group of individuals whose efforts often go unnoticed - the event planners and administrative staff. 

When Event Planning is considered to be one of the most stressful jobs in the world, celebrating the effort is just as important as celebrating the outcome.

We want to ensure event planners are celebrated in a meaningful way, and have collated a few ideas to get you started.

The Importance of Celebrating Employees

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that there are many benefits to celebrating employees. Happy employees work harder and happy employees are also less likely to leave.

Celebrations go a long way to:

Whilst EOFY parties are typically associated with award ceremonies and formal dinners, why not adopt a fresh take this year and weave employee recognition naturally into the celebration? Here are a few ideas:

Turn the Spotlight on Event Planners

Develop a unique awards category recognising the tenacity, organisation, and creativity of your event staff. This could include awards such as 'Best Logistics Coordinator', 'Most Innovative Decor', or 'Best Event Theme'.

Hold Interactive Sessions

Arrange short sessions where staff members can share their experiences, challenges faced, and how they overcame them. This not only highlights their achievements but also educates others about the intricate role event planners play.

Surprise Appreciation Gifts

Event planners are usually focused on providing gifts and swag to other team members during events, rarely receiving anything in return. Surprise them with personalised appreciation gifts during the EOFY celebrations.

 

As the excitement of EOFY approaches, let's ensure our events not only celebrate the company's achievements but also those who have been instrumental in orchestrating those successes. 

By recognising the hard work of our event planners, we can strengthen team morale and create a positive corporate culture – ensuring an even more successful year ahead!

If you are wanting to go one step further, consider empowering your team to use a service like BizziEvents to help reduce their workload. By having BizziEvents research, compare, contact and negotiate venues on your behalf, you are able to save and reallocate up to 4 hours per event to more rewarding (and revenue driving) activities.
