A Guide to Planning a Corporate Retirement Event

A corporate party should be given to an important person in your company who is retiring. Planning a corporate retirement event is much different from any other event since this is an event honoring a single person for his contribution to the growth of the company. So, when you are planning this corporate event, you give special consideration to the person being honored in the event. Below are some things that can help you plan your corporate retirement event. Whether you are using the services of an event planner or doing the planning yourself, you need to consider these tips.

Setting a budget is very important. Although you don’t want to make a big fuss over money when it comes to a very important person of your company, having an unlimited budget is also unrealistic. Make sure you consider the following when making your budget: the importance of your guest of honor, the number of guests attending, the venue cost, the food cost, etc. and when you come up with your budget, it has to be something that your executives will approve.

Planning should not only be your job. Anyone close to the retiree in your company should be included in your planning. You can gain better insight into the preferences of your guest of honor.

Your guest list should include family and close friends of the retiree. His family and close friends can even provide names and contact information of people you need to invite to the event.

It would be a great idea to create an Instagram feed to your retirement event. With photos, you will be able to preserve memories of the event. In this age, taking photos can easily be done with any mobile device. You can create a personalized album for the retiree to enjoy in Instagram where everyone can simply upload their photos. You can also put these photos in your company’s website.

There should also be a portion in your event where you will recognize the retiree formally. You should highlight his contributions to the success of the company. You can make a video presentation in honor of the retiree. You can also work on something more personal like asking coworkers to speak about the many good contributions he has made for the company.

think about the best retirement gift you can give. You gift should impress to him your appreciation of the things he has done for the company. You can ask his family or coworkers what the best gift to give is considering his hobbies and preferences. If he is fond of playing golf, a golf package will be perfect, or airline tickets to travel overseas, a watch or a pen for more traditional ones. Whatever it is, his contribution to your company should be honored.
