When you are planning a team-building event for your employees, food is an excellent way to bring people together, and a MasterChef-style event is an excellent way to engage your employees. Everyone can have a lot of fun when taking part in this event, and a bonus is you all get to enjoy the fruits of your labour once finished.
It can be a lot of fun for all your employees, and there are additional benefits for your business, such as enhancing:
- Time Management
- Leadership Skills
If a MasterChef team-building event sounds ideal for your business and its employees, below are some of the things you need to do to plan such an event and ensure it benefits all involved.
Decide On A Location
One of the first things you must decide is where you will hold your event, and you must know how many people will be attending. It is worth considering using XL Events BBQ MasterChef team building activities or other reputable companies who can help you arrange everything and ensure the location has everything you need, such as ovens, grills, or a barbecue. Once your location is determined, you will need to move on to the next stage of planning.
Dividing The Teams
You will need to know how many of your employees will be attending the event, and from there, you can work out how many teams you will have. Rather than dividing the teams randomly, you want to ensure that each team has a good mixture of different employees from the departments of your business, including management. It is also important that everyone knows that within the team, everyone is on a level pegging with no seniority. Once the teams are decided, you can turn your attention to the food and start preparing a shopping list.
Deciding On The Food
As you will be giving the teams the choice of foods they want to cook during the event, it is best to shop for the food you need on the day. You can have the teams sit down in their groups and work out their menus and list out all the ingredients they will require. Once each team has submitted their lists, you can go shopping for everything and ensure they have what they need to cook their menus.
Arrange A Judge
You will also want to have someone judge the event for you and provide tips to the teams for their cooking, and a local chef can do this for you. You can also have more than one judge for your event, which will allow the teams to get more help while preparing their food. Once your judges are in place, you can start the event and observe how the teams get on.
You can now sit back and watch your teams work together, see how they fare, and enjoy the spoils of their labour when the cooking is complete. You can award the winning team with the prizes you have before you all sit down to eat the rest of the food and enjoy a delicious meal together.
