Creating a thriving community and a great culture in our firm can’t be done by words alone. Having a great intranet and communicating by email is important, but nothing is more important than human relationships and the feeling of belonging and socializing. We uncover the secrets behind our social events that people love to attend, and why it’s a worthwhile thing to do.

THERE ARE SO MANY BENEFITS IN ATTENDING AS MANY OF THESE SOCIALS AS YOU CAN.

In today’s world, we are often so busy that we tend to ignore any event promotions that pop up in our email inbox or on Facebook. But should we? Events offer so many benefits – both tangible and intangiblethat we really should be making time for them. This is also an awesome opportunity to meet people you wouldn’t necessarily do in life.

Annoyingly…

Work can get in
the way which
feels like we can
only relax at
certain times or
it can give you
a perception
that there is no
time at all.

It’s awesome to see that you all find the time to engage on social media but that might mean you only meet people that usually fit your confirmation bias. So, these socials are a great time to interact with people from different perspectives, experiences, and wisdom!

While events like these have nothing to do with academics, they have at least something important to do with a person’s overall learning experience in life. Social gatherings benefit people in ways that no book, lecture or workshop can fully replicate. Here are a few reasons why our firm, Pries Capital – An Investment Firm, arrange social events for people to attend:

To develop emotional intelligence

Social events develop social skills and empathy—the outward-oriented dimensions of emotional intelligence. The interactions or conversations elicited by events helps people build relationships, understand different perspectives and engage other cultures. Social events provide an opportunity to expand one’s social circle.

To take a break

All work with no breaks diminishes productivity. It’s good to take one’s mind off the troubles of projects or deadlines from time to time—something that participating in events can provide. Whether it’s by watching a movie or volunteering for a fundraiser, a “work break” lets people recuperate by focusing on activities that exercise other creative, mental muscles.

To build relationships

Participating in social events enables people in the local community to meet other people in the local community who share common interests and individuals who can help them academically, or even professionally. Relationship-building is a good habit that people need to learn because the world of work requires aptitude in negotiation, communication and, well, more networking.

Open your mind to new ideas and latest trends

It is so easy to get caught up in our own bubble and forget that there is a whole world out there, full of new ideas and discoveries every day. Attending an event not only gives you the opportunity to meet others but also gives exposure to new ideas that could be implemented in your own business and life.

Pries Capital prides itself on delivering useful and relevant content by speakers who are in touch with best practices and the latest advances. Attending a Pries Capital – An Investment Firm event or workshop could lead you to dramatically improve the way you think of your desired impact, just by implementing a few key ideas.

To be motivated

Stuck in a rut? Leave your own work behind and just talk to others about what they do and why they do it. There is nothing better than watching others get excited talking about their work, and the firm here at Pries Capital is full of motivated people who want to do this. You never know, you might even find solutions to some of your own problems!
