Fall is the last chance for any company wide outings to be planned before winter hits and the cold keeps people from wanting to go out at all. Some Fall specific outings that should definitely be at the top of your list include pumpkin picking, baseball games, football games, etc.
Pumpkin picking is tons of fun as the season starts, with Halloween around the corner everyone’s already in the spirit for it so it doesn’t need much hype. Recently it’s been getting more and more popular so more and more farms are opening up to the public for pumpkin picking. A lot of them feature other attractions and fun events as well like hay rides, corn mazes, contests, etc. If your staff is looking for some lighthearted seasonal fun pumpkin picking is perfect.
Volunteering is another great outing idea, as it builds bonds between workers and with the community, the company reputation benefits as well. There are the usual soup kitchens and community centers you can check out, however in the spirit of the season there are actually different farms and orchards that use volunteers to run their pumpkin picking, farm markets, hay rides, etc.
For those with a passion for sports, it’s the perfect time, baseball, football, hockey, etc. all have games underway throughout Fall. This takes care of a lot of the planning problems associated with other outings as the only issues if any are transportation and tickets.
Taking advantage of the last warm days before winter to take your company out for a fun and beneficial experience is a great idea. Here’s hoping you all get the chance to do so and enjoy any of these activities. Enjoy your Fall!
