Holding a Town Hall can be a powerful tool for unifying your team. Additionally, Town Halls can help employees get aligned with corporate values and as a result, nurture a culture that is invested in your organization’s success. A regular Town Hall meeting offers an opportunity to share the vision for the company as you grow, disseminate important information or polices, and allow employees to ask questions or voice concerns.
Whether you are using Town Hall as a feedback opportunity or as an effective way to get everyone aligned with corporate goals, there is a lot to be gained. In truth, the possibilities are limitless and the event itself can be tailored to fit the needs, interests, and requests of your team. The key is to remember that this should be edifying for your audience- they are the focus of the event. If you’re ready to kick your Town Hall into high gear (and out of boring lecture territory) then consider the following tips for hosting an engaging, and effective Town Hall Meeting:
A Town Hall allows you to get a pulse on your organization’s culture. It allows leadership to be visible and to re-enforce culture and values to the team. Sure, it’s great to have a forum for sharing important updates, but at its core, a Town Hall is a chance to inspire collaboration, promote alignment, and build up team morale.
If you’re looking to start incorporating some more dynamic activities into your Town Hall event, consider some of the ideas DOMA has successfully incorporated in the past:
Town Hall is something we prioritize at DOMA. We use the event as a chance to honor our employees and bring a little bit of fun into the workday, but Town Hall can also be a wonderful litmus test for the success of current culture initiatives.
DOMA’s approach to culture in 2019 is has been to be as inclusive as possible and to make avenues for everyone to participate. This means ensuring that there is a variety of different types of fun, charitable, and personal development activities at different times of day and of different lengths to accommodate everyone’s schedule. For DOMA Town Hall has been a great testing ground for new initiatives and an excellent forum for reciving feedback on what’s working, and where there is an opportunity for growth.
