If you have a customer service or sales team, then planning a Customer Service Week
celebration is probably one of your responsibilities! Use a Customer Service Week theme to make your event fun and memorable.
This year, consider a board game-inspired Customer Service Week theme. Board games have always been a popular staple of households and provide hours of affordable entertainment. You can get really creative and make a life-size version of a popular board game that your teammates can – literally – play themselves!
Even though Candy Land is a board game designed for children, it makes a great Customer Service Week theme thanks to its colorful board design, interesting characters, and candy focus. We’ve come up with a few games, activities, and decorations for you to get started planning this theme:
• Play Candy Land as teams! Each department is a “player” which has the opportunity to draw cards periodically and players around the board. Have prizes
available for teams when they land on certain spaces.
• Decorate your building with rainbow colored balloons that remind employees of your Candy Land Customer Service Week theme.
• Fill a large jar with gum drops and ask employees to guess the number of candies in the gar. The individual closest to the actual number, wins the jar and treats!
• Have a different treat each day with your Candy Land Customer Service Week theme. Treat your team to gingerbread cookies, ice cream cones, licorice, and other Candy Land treats.
• Rename departments or meeting rooms with locations from the game, such as Candy Castle, Lollipop Woods, and Peanut Brittle House. Hang themed posters at each location.
• Give each member of your team a candy gift. It could be a gift certificate to a local candy shop, Twist Top Tumbler
filled with candy, or a lollipop
• Arrange for a local candy maker to visit your organization and make a demonstration. Don’t forget to ask them to bring samples!
• Your Customer Service Week theme can even be applied to position names and titles. Change your company directory to list names of Candy Land characters. Your team will have fun determining who is a Mamma Ginger Tree, Duke of Swirl, King Kandy, and creating your own Candy Land titles.
• Make several copies of the game available in the lunch or break room so employees can play the game and revisit their childhood!
• Create a colored pathway through your department or building that mimics the famous game board to make your Customer Service Week theme even more prominent!
• Create a candy buffet for your employees can enjoy. To continue with your Candy Land Customer Service Week theme, find candies that are in the colors of the board game. You could also select retro candy, seasonal candy, or locally made candy.
