It’s important for employees to feel comfortable at the workplace. Not every office is like The Office, with a Michael Scott running around putting employees in the most awkward situations imaginable. Luckily, and hopefully, office managers care a little bit more about the wellbeing of employees.
One of the easiest ways to improve company morale is to improve the actual relationships between coworkers. If your coworkers aren’t actually friends with each other, it’ll make for a much less productive office. They don’t have to spend the holidays together or go on vacations together, but being genuinely friendly to each other will provide many office benefits.
Figuring out ways to improve company morale can be tricky. You don’t want to have awkward nights that make your employees more uncomfortable. Having company parties that are actually fun, creative, and engaging, however, can really be great for employee bonding.
A casino theme party can be a lot of fun for everyone. You can have a casino night fundraiser that will surely raise some money once the employees start throwing money down.
Conversely, you don’t even have to have any money involved during your office casino theme party. The main goal of these parties is to improve the employee relationships with each other. Money can often do the opposite of that. Not everyone is an experienced casino veteran, so they might get uncomfortable with all the tables, chips, money, and chaos that casinos can come with.
You don’t want the guy in sales to annoy everyone with his “crazy” stories of Coushatta or how much money he lost or won. You just want people to have fun. So limiting the amount of cash allowed or completely eliminating the aspect of money during a casino theme party might be your best option.
Even a simple game of poker with all your coworkers will be a wonderful time as long as the stakes are not too high. During the last year, over 10 million people have played poker in a casino. Why not bring that fun to the office? People don’t only play poker for the money; they play because it’s a great way to socialize, have fun, and learn more about each other. Poker nights at a group casino party will be fun for everyone and your company will benefit as a result.
