Have you ever considered organizing a fun party with your colleagues? Not only is it a great way to blow off some steam, but it also helps establish good rapport among coworkers, improving team morale, communication, and productivity.
Here are a few ideas you can try depending on where you plan to host your shindig.
The office is your playground—you just have to use a bit of imagination. Take the classic potluck party and jazz it up with fun activities. You can go with a themed scavenger hunt and base the clues or prizes on the team’s latest obsessions, like TV shows (HBO’s mind-bending Westworld is back!) and movies (how about an Infinity War-themed scavenger hunt?). For a more relaxed vibe, you can ask everyone to bring board games or you can turn the conference room into an intimate movie theater.
Go City Exploring
Everyone keeps talking about going out of town, but have you ever stopped to think about the wonders you can find right in the city? Head to the hip neighborhood of Poblacion in Makati, where you can make a game out of finding hidden treasures like a leather goods store that doubles as a curbside bar one night a week (The Workshop), a red door that leads to a bar in an apartment complex (The Apartment), and a balete tree in the middle of a bar on the second floor of a restored home (Agimat). Just make sure you have designated drivers or a plan for everyone to get home safely, so you’re free to toast the night away. You can also book an escape room—there’s nothing like solving mysteries to make lasting ties with your teammates. Feel like braving the heat? Spend an afternoon going around the walled city of Intramuros and bond over rediscovering the country’s rich history.
A trip out of town is an exciting idea that requires a bit more organization. First, check with your boss and ask when it would be best for the team to go on an overnight or weekend trip. Then, ask your officemates if they know any group deals. Take the info and come up with three locations and dates for the team to vote on. With the winning location and date in mind, look up quality resorts or Airbnb spots. Then, divide the team into committees: accommodations, transpo, food and drinks, and activities. Out-of-town trips may require a bit more effort, but it also means that the fun teamwork starts even before you step out of the office.
Right in Your Own Condo
Why not host an intimate pool party in your own condo? At Azure Urban Resort Residences in Parañaque, you can even base the theme on the condo’s modern tropical design. Inspired by Miami’s hip coastal scene, the property features the Azure Beach, a man-made beach complete with fine white sand, undulating waves, and waterfalls. Just a few steps away are a wave pool and a 25-meter lap pool that doubles as an infinity pool, with floating sunbathing beds. For the ultimate experience, make a playlist of outdoor tunes and take charge of the Azure Beach Bar’s DJ deck. The bar is well-stocked with a variety of snacks and beverages—perfect for your pool party.
Designed by the award-winning Broadway Malyan, the hyper-amenitized condo also features the Paris Beach Club, which houses an ice cream and candy bar, indoor restaurant, al fresco dining area, gym, spa, movie room, game room, children’s playroom, function rooms, and infirmary. Other amenities in Azure Urban Resort Residences include a beach volleyball court and the children’s beach playground. Can you say #condogoals? Your workmates will definitely have a blast, and your bash will be the talk of the office long after it’s over. In the meantime, you can enjoy Azure even for a weekend by reserving a unit at Siglo Suites for an Instagram-worthy staycation with your officemates!
