Corporate outings are supposed to be fun and bring your office closer together. There is also a lot of other potential benefits to an outing – fitness, bonding, brand recognition, break in health insurance premiums, etc. Depending on the type of outing you choose, you can achieve a number of different goals.
If getting involved with your community is a goal, look at community service and volunteer work or attending a local event. If fitness is an office goal, try a bike/run/walk race.
Here are a few ideas:
- Tour de Menlo – Although it is happening soon (August 19th), a bike ride in the Menlo Park area sponsored by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation and the Almanac is a great way to get involved and exercise.
- SF Giant Race - Does your office have a lot of Giants fans? Why not do the Giants Race on August 27th.
- Color Run – Can’t make it to either of the two events above because they are happening this month? Color runs are always a lot of fun and this one isn’t happening until October.
