Corporate Summer Outings in Boston

Why should you host a company picnic?

We’ve put a lot of time and effort into studying the perfect summer corporate outing in Boston.  So much time, in fact, that we’ve created a dictionary of terms describing some of the symptoms and actions resulting from stellar corporate outings.

Among the numerous reasons to host a summer corporate outing, perhaps the most common one we’ve found is to increase company morale.  Also at the top of that list are:  to increase productivity and encouraging teamwork and office chemistry.  Having a good time together will do that to a group, no matter how big or small.  So, in an effort to get the summer fun started for all those companies deciding whether or not to host a company picnic in Boston this year, let us make the decision even easier for you by sharing our Summer Corporate Outings Dictionary.


Here’s a glossary of terms that you can hope to experience when you host a summer corporate outing this summer:

Picnicology:  noun
Definition:  the study of summer outings and their positive impact on productivity and company morale.

Typing reflux:  noun
Definition:  the inability to do data entry whilst jumping on a moonwalk.

Condimentment:  noun
Definition:  the ego boost often associated with seeing a spot of mustard on the VP’s tie.

Priceless:  adjective

How can you help the decision makers in your company make the right choice?  Bring this list of definitions to them and ask how they feel about a little fun outside of the office.  Picnicology is a science!  The results of our studies show that corporate outings, especially in the summer, lead to great returns on investment including higher employee engagement, more streamlined teamwork, bigger boosts in morale and productivity and, perhaps most of all, a whole lot of sophisticated FUN.
