Planning employee events: Staff engagement through events

When it comes to planning employee events we know a thing or two. A corporate event happens for a reason, there will be key business objectives behind the decision to hold an event, and so it has to be results oriented. Basically, it goes way beyond finding a venue, organising the catering and making sure all the AV equipment is in good working order! There are plenty of event management and production companies out there, all of which know how to deliver great events and memorable experiences. When it comes to corporate events, we like to think that MGN events has a competitive edge that our corporate clients value highly, achieved through understanding and strategic thinking, underpinned by our expertise in event planning and management.

Planning employee events: Understanding your needs

Before we even get into the nitty gritty of date, number of attendees and so on, we want to sit down with you and gain a really good understanding of why the event is to happen – is it about communicating a new way approach to business, is your sales team under performing, are you setting up a completely new team? Then we need to understand what you want to achieve and what participants should gain from the event. Armed with this knowledge we can then start thinking about and planning employee events.

A trusted member of your team

By immersing ourselves in your business, we aim to go beyond the usual client-supplier relationship, acting instead as an extension of your team. Event planning is a full-time job, and we know that you’re already likely to be busy – you need someone that you can trust, someone on whom you can depend to get things done. Our event managers know how to fulfill this role, professionally and with empathy.  

A bespoke approach to every event

There are lots of common tick boxes to be filled, but every single event MGN events creates is unique. Because every client is different, as are their requirements. If you have ideas about how your event might look, we’ll explore them with you and develop them more fully. Equally, we can come up with ideas ourselves that are aligned to your business objectives, and from the theming to the actual content of the event, we’ll take responsibility for as much of the event as you want us to take.

Knowledge and expertise

A huge amount of work goes into delivering an event, whether it’s for 20 or 200 people. We have the knowledge and skills to make it look easy; from finding an unusual venue to coming up with innovative ideas for creating an engaging experience and making sure we keep to budget. MGN events has the perfect mix of creativity and imagination, technical wizardry and production know-how, along with excellent organisational skills. 

Taking care of all the details

This is where trust really comes into play. You can trust us to take care of every single detail, both large and small. From the logistics of getting delegates to and from the venue to branding the event, organising suppliers and even putting together a key speaker presentation; we’ll sort out everything required to make the event a success. 

Communication

Trusting us to get on with the job is one thing, but we know you’ll want reassurance along the way. We’ll keep you well informed throughout the planning and organising phases so that you know exactly what’s happening and what everything costs. We believe in providing a service that is totally transparent.

We’re very proud of the employee events we’ve created. The fact that we enjoy a lot of repeat business speaks volumes about how our clients feel about us and what we do.
