Out and About- Team Building Event in Central Park
Updated: Aug 16, 2019
Corporate culture has become an integral part of a businesses in the past two decades, the backbone of a happy workplace. A positive culture can make a substantial influence on a company’s success while a negative one can lead to failure or in other words, happy employees contribute to the success of the company.
One way to improve your company culture is by planning a team-building event. We were approached by Oracle Data Cloud to create a fun summer event for their employees at Central Park. They wanted an event that will include some food and refreshments, fun activities and relaxing sitting areas.
We created beautiful low sitting areas with rugs and pillows and recycled wood pallets that served as tables. We provided a mega chess game, Cornhole, giant Jenga and more. We had a designated area for food and drinks with different pastries, vegetable platters, bagels and spreads.
The Company requested for Mocktails since it was in a public area where alcoholic drinks are prohibited, so we served three refreshing mocktails- cranberry- orange, virgin mojito, and hibiscus- raspberry.
The event was a great success and we're so happy we could take a part in helping business grow!
