The study day is a professional event more and more planned by companies in France. This inter-company event allows employees to get together and get away from the usual work environment, while focusing on the company’s objectives.

Here are some tips that should help you organize a day of study that will meet your needs and those of your employees.
THE OBJECTIVES OF A STUDY DAY
In order to efficiently organize a study day, it is essential to know what the objectives of this corporate event are.
There are generally 2 main objectives for a study day:
- The informative day: this day allows you to inform your employees about new strategic projects of the company. It can also be used for training purposes.
- The federative study day: this company activity reinforces team cohesion. Communication between the different participants is facilitated in an unusual setting, outside the walls of the company.
This short event (half a day or a whole day), must go to the essential: an effective study day. For this meeting to be productive, the room reserved must have quality equipment and a good sequence of speakers. Breaks and lunch are also essential to maintain the quality of listening during the meeting phases, throughout the day.
Start preparing for the study day in advance
Once the objectives have been set, the preparation of the event includes different steps:
- List the participants to select the venue that can accommodate your guests,
- Set the date of the study day,
- Condense the program and plan the schedules of the various interventions,
- Selecting speakers specialized in the fields covered,
- Take care of the presentation materials,
- Take the time to discuss with the participants after the presentations,
- Offer quality breaks,
- Imagining an original activity time, to break the monotony of the meetings.
If you start as early as possible, you will be able to prepare your study day with peace of mind. You will also be able to make adjustments if unforeseen events occur before the final date. Employees are more and more demanding about the quality of the professional events they attend. You must therefore make the right choices to achieve the objectives you have set beforehand.
The choice of the place for your study day
Your corporate event must be organized in an atypical place, an original place, allowing to gather comfortably the participants. The choice of the city is determining in the success of all your corporate events. A setting out of the ordinary will allow your guests to appreciate even more the event that you organize.
The space that you will reserve is also of capital importance. The room(s) occupied must be equipped with high performance equipment, so that you can provide optimal working conditions for your employees. Choose a place specialized in the reception of corporate events such as study days, the meeting room hosting your event will then be equipped with the essential material.
Specialized venues offer Study Day packages, all-inclusive packages that allow you to quickly compare and select the ideal venue that fits your budget.
Enable your employees to easily access the location of the event
The study day is organized on a short duration, the location should not be too far from the workplace. If your premises are located in Paris, for example, give preference to nearby reception venues, located less than 2 hours away. Accessibility via public transportation is also a plus for the comfort of your employees.
If the participants cannot easily access the chosen venue, it will most likely have a negative impact on their overall experience of the event. It is therefore necessary to take this aspect into account when making your choice.
