Employer-sponsored events: Beware of summer BBQ blunders

company-barbecue-picnic

So don’t get me wrong, I love staff picnics and BBQs as much as anyone and think they are a great opportunity for staff to bond outside of their regular departments and duties.  In fact as HR it is often both my responsibility and pleasure to help plan these events for my organization!  However when you start to think about what can go wrong from an employer responsibility perspective rather than an employee engagement perspective; you begin to wonder if the prospective summer BBQ will balloon into a colossal blunder.
