The Importance of Corporate Events and Experiences in 2022 and Beyond
In 2020, the pandemic brought the world to a halt. Many employees were forced to transition from the hustle and bustle of a 9-5 job in an office to working at home. And now, companies have come to realize that employees are just as or more productive at home, and many are sticking with a remote workforce. But to keep employees connected, face-to-face interactions are critical. In this week’s Happy Hour, we explore how some companies are utilizing off-site experiences and events to grow workforce relationships. We also take a look at experiential scavenger hunts and four innovative brand activation ideas, like corporate event video production.
At the height of the pandemic, remote work became the norm. For most, the change wasn’t easy. Juggling work from home and kids in virtual school was hard…really hard. Fast forward to the present day, and many companies continue to offer a work-from-home option. But there’s something to be said about the camaraderie in an office atmosphere.
For this reason, it’s vital for organizations to keep their employees connected and engaged with one another. And no, we’re not talking about meetings in the office, we’re talking about fun and engaging off-site experiences that allow them to interact with one another. Read on to see some prime examples of companies that are making face-to-face corporate experiences a priority.

And while present-day events look much like they did pre-pandemic, some of those pandemic-born tactics remain a hot trend. Here, Sparks presents four ways that both B2C and B2B brands can host engaging experiential scavenger hunts that will keep people talking.

I’m currently a law student, but my open source experience has me very interested in open law. The idea that citizens should have open access to rich, meaningful legal sources and analysis should be foundational in a democracy, when you think about it. Yet it can cost up to £9000 to get a full transcript of your own trial!
We’ve got a long way to go until there are hovercams recording court proceedings from every angle (or even until the rest of the courts of the land catch up with the facilities on offer in the new Supreme Court) but in the meantime I think we can do better with what we’ve got now.
BAILII is an amazing resource, but needs a 21st century upgrade (which I would like to get on to myself, if I can do so without my grades suffering). I think it should be added to the Departments > Justice arm of the mind map. I wonder what can be done to encourage more transcripts and recordings to be made available from courts automatically? A system like the one at theyworkforyou.com/video for transcribing court audio would be fantastic.
As a political commentator, I often now use http://www.blogminster.com which has some dross in it, but mostly is the only place I can get a full view of gov dept announcements in an orderly timely way in one place, alongside MP views and PM announcements.
I know it is a mixed source (both OpenGov and external), but really it should be adopted by government, or brought in the fold, because it does aggregate data in a way that’s really helpful.
