Company Picnic Checklist

Company Picnic Checklist

Updated on: Feb 17, 2024

One of the ways to foster a great company culture is to hold a company picnic! Having a company picnic can help everyone at your company get to know each other better while enjoying great food and engaging in fun games and activities. However, planning a company picnic can be complicated if you don't know where to start. Our company picnic checklist and picnic supplies checklist help you begin and organize your plans to hold a great company picnic.

Reasons to Use Our Company Picnic Checklist

1. Automatic Timeline

You may be wondering: how long does it take to plan a company picnic or how to plan a company picnic? We believe that that answer should be up to you. General checklists can make you feel anxious or "behind" before even planning. Still, our Company Picnic Checklist template prevents you from feeling that way because of our automatic timeline feature. All you need to do is enter the date that you're planning a company picnic, and from there, all of the tasks in the checklist will have their own due dates that fit into a schedule that'll ensure they'll be done in time for your picnic.

2. Event-Specific

All of the tasks in the checklist are relevant to planning a company picnic, so you don't have to worry about any irrelevant tasks in the template.

3. Visuals

The picnic planning checklist organizes all of its tasks efficiently so that you can see which tasks you need to prioritize when planning your picnic.

  • Found a date to hold the picnic? Check off the box in the row of that task, and that task will turn green to indicate that it's done.
  • Are you caught up with work? All of the tasks that have upcoming deadlines will turn yellow; the tasks that have passed deadlines will be red.

This color code system gives you a better view of what tasks need to be completed first and helps you make sure that all of your tasks will be completed on time before your picnic happens.

4. Shareable

Our checklist is shareable if you're planning a company picnic with a few of your coworkers. As long as everyone you want to share it with has a Gmail account, you can share our Company Picnic Checklist (which is a Google Sheet) with anyone. From there, you all can edit the sheet whenever you'd like; multiple people can even edit it at the same time! That way, everyone can edit the checklist to indicate that they've either completed a task, added a new task, edited an existing task, or even deleted an irrelevant task.
