Event staff provides the necessary labor to execute event plans, and if needed, event staff will also provide support for event logistics. When event staffing is done correctly, it can help an event planner save time and money while executing their vision flawlessly! In this blog post we will discuss how event staffing should be used in order to get the best results from your next event planning experience.
The event staffing process has several steps that need to be executed in order for event planners and event staff to get the most out of their relationship.
- Identify a list of tasks you would like your event staffing partners to perform at your upcoming events
- Create a set of event work schedules and event staffing assignments for your event planning partners
- Share any event information that you think would be helpful with your event staffing provider (i.e. maps, floor plans, etc.)
These steps will help create an experience where both parties feel appreciated and valuable to the other party’s event goals.
You should also be mindful to communicate event staffing expectations and event management needs with your event staffing company so there is no confusion during the execution of event plans. When you hire an event staffing service, it’s wise to expect that they will understand how much effort goes into making sure all aspects of a successful event are covered. If event planners are not clear with event staffing partners about event logistics and event management needs, then you might find that there is some confusion when the event planning process begins.
One of the most important aspects of creating a successful relationship between an event staffing agency and their assigned event staff members is to make sure everyone has access to event information. The event planner should pass event information to event staff by sharing event plans, event floor-plans and event maps. Additionally, it’s important that everyone involved in the production of an event understands what needs to be done during each part of the process.
Last but not least, make sure you provide your event staffing partners with any training they may need to make event production as smooth as possible. This can include training on event staffing responsibilities, event management expectations and event logistics duties. If you do not provide event staff with the proper tools they will rely on their previous experience or your guidance in order to execute tasks properly during an assigned work-period at a specific event site.
Using the right event staff can be a great event planning resource. Once you take the time to understand what your needs are, it will be easy for everyone involved in the production of an event to work together seamlessly!
