picnic, the theme should influence your setup, team-building exercises, activities, and food and drink.

Are you tired of watching perfect summer days pass your office by from the wrong side of the window? Instead of leaving work to enjoy the weather, bring your company outside! A company picnic is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the warm weather and foster team camaraderie through awards, team-building exercises and, of course, good food. Putting on a slam-bang company picnic is no easy feat, but if you start with these three fundamentals, you’ll be well on your way to pulling off an event the whole company will remember for years to come.

PICNIC LOCATION Large public parks can easily accommodate big groups, but if you’re in a pinch, you can also use your company campus. If you have enough in your budget, you can rent a venue nearby that works with your theme. Make sure your location has enough seating for everyone and keep track of the weather reports for that day if you’re grilling outside.

Ultimately, the purpose of your company picnic is to give your employees opportunities to bond outside the office and celebrate one another through awards and team building.

That decision saved him $20,000.” Scott’s approach focuses on protecting his clients and their business rather than fixing things. “We build something that’s going to last,” Scott sums up.

PICNIC THEME The first step to organizing a company picnic is to choose a theme your employees will be excited about.

What happens when your attorney is also an experienced business coach? This spring, Scott weighed in on this question on “The Unstoppable CEO” podcast. Founder Steve Gordon hosted as Scott shared his extensive experience and insight on what makes a business successful and how to shatterproof it. Here’s some of what they discussed. EPISODE 122 OF ‘THE UNSTOPPABLE CEO’ PODCAST: ‘YOUR LAWYER AS A BUSINESS COACH’ A Ziglar Legacy-certified trainer with over 20 years of experience as an attorney, Scott Reib has spent the last two decades helping other owners shatterproof their business so they can go out and succeed.
