The honchos of the corporate world have realized that just by pushing their employees into more and more work will not improve their throughput. Everyone needs a little break in between. Even if we have the finest job, say traveling the world and tasting the finest cuisines, we do get bored out of it. The human resources people are now working on making the work place friendlier and stress free by adopting various methods. One such very successful trick is to let your sleeves go loose while you dance your way to the floor – Corporate Party.
Major firms hold monthly or weekly parties to keep up the spirit of the employee. The employee work so hard all through the month and so this party comes as a delight for most of them. These parties also give the employees a chance to know each other better and bond better. Firms like Infosys, TCS, Google, Microsoft and Facebook are a few names, which follow this technique to raise the level of their PR. The world is pacing through with any break and it’s tiresome, so a quick nap won’t really do any harm.
When we talk about corporate party, IPL is another name, which comes bouncing in our minds. The IPL is known for its parties and celebrity connections. The IPL parties are a rescue for the players. The IPL continues for about one and a half month and it can get pretty tiresome for the players to travel all over India in a non-stop fashion and perform on the field as well. These parties provide the much-needed break for the players and also help them connect to big names. Sadly, BCCI has decided to ban the IPL party practice from the next season, but we hope to see it soon(unofficial version!)
With the introduction of parties in corporate affairs, the stress level is being seen to decline and the happiness index is rising. After all the old saying fits here, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, play being party in our context.
