Company afterwork

We owe the tradition of afterwork to Anglo-Saxon countries. The principle is simple: employees meet in a place to relax after work. Initially perfectly informal, the concept has become more and more democratic, but above all organised. It must be said that it is an excellent way of developing and strengthening cohesion among employees. It also allows them to network and discover their colleagues in a different, even more friendly, light.

It is a sort of extension of the workplace, without actually being one. The idea is above all to relax with colleagues. Corporate afterwork events are increasingly part of a team building approach, which is probably why they are increasingly organised by event agencies.

Organise an afterwork

Organising a company afterwork can sometimes be tricky as it is an in-between event. Indeed, it is situated between the classic company party and the informal evening with colleagues. Because of the target group, it is important to choose the right corporate entertainment during these moments, as well as the venue. The key word should be conviviality. Employees should be able to talk to each other in a relaxed manner, and not discuss work-related issues. The activities should therefore be designed with this in mind.

As for theorganisation of larger events, event agencies now offer formulas for original and atypical afterwork events.

Some original company afterwork activities

Specialised event agencies such as SOP Events offer their corporate clients a wide range of turnkey or made-to-measure events. In all cases, the personalised service provided by the agency, in addition to its proximity to the client, is a real added value for the afterwork planned by the client.

Here are some of the most original afterwork activities.

> Company evening football entertainment

This event allows employees to watch their favourite team's matches together. The evening is punctuated by other activities, such as electronic mini football, giant table football, lunch or aperitif, all with a football theme.

A gin cocktail workshop

Participants will discover gin through a high quality mixology course. They can even make cocktails in a beautiful atmosphere. They are accompanied throughout the activity by a professional host, who will also set the mood.

An afterwork in a private bus

This is definitely a hair-raising activity. The guests are picked up at a specific location and transported to the privatised bus. They can enjoy an aperitif and dinner on the bus. A DJ is available to entertain them throughout the evening. The interior of the bus is completely decorated and fitted out.

A karaoke night with a singer

The karaoke evening is undoubtedly a classic of company afterwork events, but it always has a small effect. For this event, a brasserie lounge is privatised and employees are invited to exercise their singing talents alone or in groups. The atmosphere of the evening is left to the discretion of the client company.

> A corporate evening on a catamaran

Employees can go for a walk or stay on board a catamaran hired for the occasion. They can enjoy an aperitif or even dinner. A DJ is available to entertain them.
