People are committed to their work and spend countless hours trying to drive up your bottom line and it can lead to burnout. Burnout is both mental and physical exhaustion caused by work-related stress.
Symptoms include depression, cynicism, lack of energy, trouble sleeping, and physical issues such as digestion issues and headaches. Burnout can happen to anyone from people on the factory floor to upper management.
Common causes of burnout include:
The result is unhappy employees that underperform and eventually leave the company. Work is stressful and many times there’s little you can do about it but giving them a day of complete relaxation and fun now and then combats workplace fatigue, boosts morale, and gets them ready for the weeks ahead.
Workplace stress makes life difficult for your employees and can lead to serious physical and mental issues. Company picnics are a natural way to alleviate that stress, so they look forward to coming to work every day.
There was a time when almost every company had some form of company picnic or event for their employees and their families. As budgets tightened, many companies phased out this necessary event, but it’s time to bring it back.
It’s not just the employees that need a break, but their families too. Children and spouses are as much a part of your company as the employees. We’re the perfect company picnic venue in Washington, you won’t believe all the fun games and attractions that are in store for your employees.
Recreational Lawn Games – Everyone loves to play games and we have many different ones to choose from including bocce ball, volleyball, and horseshoes. Is there anything more relaxing than a fun game of horseshoes on a warm, beautiful day? You’ll see the stress and worry melt off their faces with every throw.
Family Activities – Have your employees and their families take a crack at the hay maze. The area is filled with laughter as they navigate the fun and safe maze. Swans Trail Farms was made for families and many of our activities involve them. Help the families cheer on their duck in the live duck races or watch them enjoy our petting farm. Animals naturally bring families together, so give them the opportunity to learn everything farm life has to offer.
Children’s Play Area – No company picnic is complete without the exuberant energy of children as they play and give the adults some time to relax. The kids relieve the days of the gold rush by panning for gold. It’s an experience they’ll never forget. They enjoy our famous cow trains and expend all that boundless energy on our giant slides.
Group Games – Your teams work together all week long, so it’s fun to bring in a little competition. We have a softball field that is perfect for gaining bragging rights. Grab your gloves and watch as everyone has fun playing one of the greatest games ever invented. If softball isn’t in the cards, then enjoy our 9-hole putting course. Test your skills and find out why Steve from accounting is undefeated. Games create camaraderie among teams that don’t get the opportunity to work together during the week.
It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy 125-acres of pristine country complete with beautiful mountain and river backdrops. They call the city a concrete jungle, so escape its confines to Swans Trail Farms.
