Entertainment Ideas for Employees

  • Cartoonist

Booking a cartoonist for your corporate event is a fun way to entertain your guests and leave them with a fun souvenir from your corporate event.

Only those brave enough and willing to laugh should ask for a drawing. More often than not, cartoonists and cartoonists are reserved for Entertainment Ideas at the front desk. Each picture takes (usually) 5 minutes or less to complete.

  • Period: 1-2 hours
  • Shift time:  Receive
  • Planning:  Reservations
  • Draw The Body And Draw The Face

It offers great branding opportunities and always produces unforgettable photos!

If it’s a family event and kids will be attending, consider booking a makeup artist for the occasion. Organizing play for children is always appreciated. Make no mistake…some of your adult guests will want their makeup done.

Pro tip:

If the goal is to take weird and crazy photos, combine this activity with a photo booth or Polaroid angle.

  • Period: 1-2 hours
  • Shift time: Receive
  • Planning: Reservations
  • Bouncy Castle

Children love castles a bit…but the reality is that most adults can’t wait to play this castle. You should be able to easily reserve one in your area.

If you want to rent one for an adult, make sure the model you rent is appropriate. Not all bouncy castles are.

Pro tip:

Set up a bouncy castle a bit away from the main reception area. Depending on the unit you rent, noise from the ventilation system can be loud.

  • Period: In progress
  • Shift time: Receive
  • Planning: To rent
  • Silent Disco

In fact, you may have seen or witnessed it with your own eyes.

The concept is very simple:

Instead of streaming music through speakers, all guests will hear the tunes via wireless headphones. If that’s what interests you, look for equipment rentals in your area.

  • Period: 5 o’clock
  • Shift time: After dinner
  • Planning: Reservations
  • Juggler

Juggers can be booked to perform or perform “ambient” animations. which means they’re there for those who want to see them. If they’re going to be juggling fire, check with the location first.

  • Period: 1-2 hours
  • Shift time: Receive
  • Planning: Reservations
  • Stilt-Walker

Book giants to stroll among your guests. The stilts add eccentricity to any kind of event. If the event takes place during a festive time of year, you can also ask them to dress appropriately for the occasion.

  • Period: 1-2 hours
  • Shift time: Receive
  • Planning: Reservations
  • Circus Performance

Technically, the last three performers are circus acts. They are most popular at corporate events, but the list goes on. The general theme is that these are incredible displays of skill and practice.

Usually, circus acts are reserved for Entertainment Ideas at the reception. Just check if they are allowed on your site (fire, insurance, etc).

  • Period: 1-2 hours
  • Shift time: Receive
  • Planning: Reservations
  • Pub Quiz

Another fun do-it-yourself activity at corporate events is the table quiz or the “pub quiz”. Plan a series of questions about the company and other topics for your audience to answer.

For the game to be interesting, the questions must be silly. Combine inside knowledge/trivia with common knowledge questions. Silly award-winning goal. 

  • Period: 15 to 20 minutes
  • Shift time: Have dinner
  • Planning: do it yourself
  • Casino Night

Install some classic casino games (blackjack, roulette, etc.) for guests to enjoy. Fundraising money can go to a charity of your choice or help fund your next party.

The winner can win a drink or a silly prize.

  • Period: 1-3 hours
  • Shift time: Receive
  • Planning: DIY or Rent
  • Karaoke

Evaluate your audience carefully before going down this path. It could be random. However, if it succeeds, it’s the most fun you’ll ever have. Check with the facility to see if they have the equipment you need. The screen, speakers and microphone are all you really need. You can also rent equipment for the evening or hire someone to sing karaoke for the occasion.

Again, don’t make this activity too long or force people to do it…that might scare some of your guests.

Pro tip:

Be sure to test the device first. The lyrics and microphone must be fully functional for this game to work properly.

  • Period: 30 minutes
  • Shift time: After dinner
  • Planning: DIY or Rent

  • Shift time: Have dinner
  • Planning: do it yourself
  • Taste Blind

Have a booth where you blindfold guests and let them guess different drinks and/or food. Wine tasting is always a popular choice. Especially if your employees are connoisseurs of wine.

  • Period: 20 minutes
  • Shift time: Reception or dinner
  • Planning: do it yourself
  • Stage Show

If you have the space, why not book a performance on stage? It can be any art form that you specifically identify with. A singer, a comedian, a magician… It’s the perfect after-dinner entertainment.

  • Shift time: After dinner
