Did someone say Picnic?

It’s that time of year when the boss gets to wear an apron and BBQ burgers for the team, right?  (If you’re not planning a summer event for you team, you should – nudge, nudge!)

Often we book those company outings looking at the corporate calendar vs people’s calendars.  Then we wonder why attendance is low.

This year, plan the dates before you plan the activity.  Use software like Doodle to get buy-in on the date and time, then plan away.

By the way, volunteering is a great way to build teamwork, make Gen Xs and Gen Ys happy and help the world.
