Why Are Work Events Important?

Employee hangouts and events are fun, casual, opportunities for coworkers to get together and have a good time. Activities and events can be regularly occurring, like a monthly lunch outing, or last-minute plans, like drinks after work. Either way, work events break up the day and build engagement as employees have something fun to look forward to during the day and get to know each other better.

Trying To Stay Spontaneous

Employee events by their nature are unstructured, loosely planned, and often spontaneous. Keeping things casual is what makes them fun, but it can also cause communication concerns. Depending on the situation, employees may only want to invite a select group of people and need a casual way to do so without making others feel excluded. Alternatively, for larger or more inclusive activities, users struggle to widely distribute information to everyone, especially if there are any last-minute changes.
Employees tell me every day that they’re making friends they didn’t even know existed before. It’s been absolutely transformational for us.

Having Fun With Friends

MangoApps has a host of both specific and centralized communication tools, giving everyone the resources they need to quickly coordinate. For regular events, employees can create reoccurring calendar events on a master office calendar, helping everyone invited stay aware and receive a reminder about the event.
Last-minute activities are easy to orchestrate as well, either at a small scale or larger level. For general office activities, users can post invitations, updates, or announcements in the group news feed, instantly updating everyone in the group and giving coworkers a place to post follow up comments or information. And for smaller interactions, friends can discreetly communicate in private through group instant or direct messages.
