What Are Employee Outings?

Lunch or after work employee outings are any kind of social event, get together, or activity employees have during lunch or after work hours. Outings can be as informal as weekly team drinks, as spontaneous as catching the latest movie, as formal as an office-wide retirement party, or as organized as a monthly book club meeting. It just depends on how employees decided to have fun and spend time together. While employee outings aren’t technically work-related, they’re a great way for coworkers to have fun, build friendships, feel engaged, and enjoy the overall company culture.

Creating Inclusive Communication

Coworkers want to plan events and have a good time together, but communicating with everyone can be a big hassle. Last-minute plans are often limited to whoever happens to be in earshot, making events feel accidentally exclusive and creating coordination confusion. Pre-planned activities and regularly scheduled events can be tricky to manage as well. Without an effective way to share important changes or create event awareness, employees are stuck sending out emails and depending on verbal communication.

Perfect Planning With MangoApps

MangoApps is designed for coordinating and sharing specific information, making everything from planning detailed events to last-minute get together simple and straightforward. MangoApps groups are organized by geographical location or employee interest, making them the perfect place to invite everyone out for the evening, schedule a last-minute get together, or make changes to preexisting plans. With a simple news feed post, everyone in your group is instantly up-to-date and can collaborate and communicate in the comments section to organize rides, set times, and arrange any other details.
For more established events like birthday celebrations or retirement parties, employees can create a group calendar event. Calendar events let you establish specific details like event times and locations and provide detailed information like photos and maps, as well as a comments and questions area. Calendar events also have an RSVP option, and can remind workers about the event a few hours or even a few days in advance.
