Office Party Games

All work and no play....can not only make Jack a dull boy, but anyone's life can become boring and monotonous with tedious work hours. Research shows that over working can in fact lead to decrease in productivity. Event organizers are encashing this fact and squeezing huge bucks from the companies in the name of providing entertainment and some fun activities to corporates and their hard working employees. 

But what if you do not want to or cannot afford such an extravagant affair and want to arrange a  quick party at office to spend a fun filled and interactive evening with your colleagues without spending much? Yes, you can definitely put up a lively and enjoyable evening and spruce it up with some innovative and enjoyable games.

 3. Silly Employee Awards
Silly Employee awards at Office Party gamesIt is one of the best opportunities to recognize and reward your employees. But please reserve those serious awards of achievements and hard-work for annual meets. If you want to laugh your heart out and enjoy the evening, give away some silliest awards to each of them. Some examples I can think of now are - the best desk decorator, the hurry-burry chap, makeup queen, sleepy head, target-bitten, heavy drinker (coffee/tea) and the rest you know more about your colleagues. Include everyone in the list. Make it more enjoyable with the condition that every recipient has to give a funny thank you speech. Double fun!
