Building a strong workplace culture should result in more fun & more engagement from everyone. If you’ve got the right people on your team, throwing meaningful parties is one way to grow a strong culture.
At The Physio Co, our core values guide us to “take the time to celebrate milestones and successes”. So we celebrate! As long as it means something to someone, we will have a party. Every year we celebrate our own birthday, Christmas, our MVP award winners, people getting married, people achieving personal goals, when we win awards and plenty of other occasions.
Last Saturday The Physio Co had a party to celebrate it’s 8th birthday. We decided on a magic theme (why not?!), invited everyone, hired a magician, blew up some balloons, sang happy birthday, ate some cake and had some fun to celebrate a milestone. It was short and sharp (from 1.30-4.30pm on Saturday afternoon) but well worth it.
Parties and celebrations don’t have to be expensive, but they do need to mean something. For example, The Physio Co’s very first Christmas Party was just four people going out for a meal at a local pub. It wasn’t fancy, but it was very important to acknowledge, thank and celebrate with our early team members (the four people at that first party are all still full time members of The Physio Co family today).
If you want a stronger culture, start finding things to celebrate. Then throw some regular parties!
