Organize an afterwork: a winning strategy for your company! 🍸🎳
This phenomenon, which originated in the United States, has become increasingly popular in France in recent years. Companies have realized that organizing an afterwork can be a real asset for them, particularly in terms of reinforcing corporate culture and boosting collaborators commitment.
WHAT IS AN AFTERWORK?
An afterwork is an informal event organized outside working hours, very often at the end of the day or before the vacations, where employees get together to have a drink, shoot pool, play darts, etc. in a place conducive to relaxation and conviviality.
AN AFTERWORK TO BOND COLLABORATORS
Afterwork events enable collaborators to get to know each other better outside the workplace.
More relaxed, collaborators are more open to discussion, getting to know each other and therefore understanding each other better.
This helps to improve communication and collaboration within companies.
AN AFTERWORK TO STRENGTHEN TEAM COHESION
When a company organizes an afterwork event, it gives its collaborators the chance to spend time together in an informal setting, and thus strengthen their bonds.
By offering a team afterwork, collaborators feel they belong to a group.
They will also have the opportunity to discover their manager’s true personality, without the superior’s hat on, which will enable them to work more effectively together in the future, and thus increase productivity.
AN AFTERWORK TO REWARD AND MOTIVATE COLLABORATORS
An afterwork can be an ideal opportunity to celebrate collective and individual successes.
Collaborators will feel more valued, and will therefore be more motivated and committed.
