A Guide to Planning a Corporate Retirement Event

When an important person in your company is retiring, then you should plan a corporate retirement event for him. IN a corporate retirement event, you don’t plan the way you plan other types of events because here, the focus is on one person, the retiree. Special consideration should be given to the person being honored when planning 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.

Even if you are honoring a very important person, it is still important to have a budget. You should have an unlimited budget, but you should also not be too tight on it since you are honoring an important person in your company. So, set a budget considering the importance of the person you are honoring, the number of guests that you will invite, the venue, food, and set an amount that your higher-ups will most likely approve for the event.

You should not do the planning all by yourself. If you don’t know the person well, it would be beneficial if you include employees, managers, officers, close to the employee to help you in the planning. The preferences of your guest of honor will be revealed through the people who know him best.

This may be a corporate event but this is also important to his family and close friends so include them in your guest list. 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. There are moments in your event that you want to commit to your memory and photography is the best way to do it. People love taking photos these days with their mobile devices so it will not be a problem getting photos from any angle of the event. In your Instagram feed, let every guest upload their photos so that the retiree can enjoy this personalized album with uploaded photos from the event. You can also display these photos on your company’s website.

A formal recognition of the retiree should be part of your event. His contributions to the success of the company should be highlighted. It can be done through a video presentation to honor the retiree. Or for a more personal gesture, ask coworkers to speak about his good contributions to the company success.

Give the retiree a great retirement gift. This gift should commemorate his long and productive career. His family and coworkers could suggest the best gift which can have something to do with his hobby or preferences. A golf package, airline tickets, or traditional gifts like a watch or a pen set can be possible choices for a gift. Whatever the gift is, it should honor his contributions to your company.
