Why A Casino Party For Your Next Company Event?
According to research done in 2013, as many as 70% of US workers are disengaged at work. Company parties and events are more than just a fun break from the daily grind; they’re essential for continued productivity, fostering trust inside an organization, and helping to shape a company culture that can attract and maintain talent. Company events prompt coworkers and leaders to get to know each other on a different level, develop mutual empathy and respect, and form friendships that aren’t easily facilitated in the normal course of working together.
Company or corporate events will be far more effective when they are fun and engaging, facilitate both cooperation and competition, and give team members opportunities for self-expression. In all three of these areas, casino games are ideal. If you want to help your team feel more engaged, increase cooperation, and show appreciation for their hard work, book a casino rental for your next corporate event today!

Employee Appreciation Events
It is a widely-accepted truism that good leaders recognize their people, and great leaders appreciate their people. Simply showing your team that their contribution matters will go a long way to improving your company culture. A casino-themed party is an ideal way to do just that! They’ll have the opportunity to relax, have fun, build important relationships, and practice their poker faces!
Most of us work in industries that require constant creativity and innovation. Creativity and innovation are best achieved in an environment where multiple minds are able to come together to solve internal and external problems. Common sense suggests that employees who learn how to work together effectively will be better able to solve these problems. That’s why it’s important for your team to be comfortable with each other and have strong relationships. Holding an office social, especially a casino-themed office social, will go a long way to help facilitate those relationships.
Casino Rental Corporate Entertainment for Chicago Companies
While casinos today are mostly associated with Las Vegas, what many people don’t realize is that it was entrepreneurs from Chicago and the East Coast that built the first Las Vegas casinos in the early and mid 20th century. In many ways, today’s Vegas still reflects the casino culture that had its start in the Windy City.
Casino-themed games have been popular in the United States since before the founding of the nation. As early as the 1680s, English aristocracy in the Virginia colony considered betting and gambling to be essential for forming strong bonds camaraderie and trust–both within their early enterprises and in the broader merchant community.
The long tradition of casino-themed corporate entertainment found its way to Chicago during the industrial revolution. Like so much of what happened in early Chicago’s history, what started as an activity reserved for the rich elite quickly became democratized, leading to the popularization of casino-themed companies and businesses in every corner of the city. This democratization led to a long tradition of casinos as a place of coming together for people from every walk of life.
The historical record is clear: casino games promote camaraderie and trust within an organization, form strong corporate relationships, and help leaders and their teams feel more integrated. Making your Chicago corporate events or company parties into a casino night with Chicago Casino Event Planners may be just what the doctor ordered for your team. Request a quote today!
