There is a saying that everything in business comes down to the bottom line. While it isn’t necessary always to be so literal, it’s important to remember that everything you do must contribute to the overall objectives of your company.
25th, 50th, 75th, 100th business anniversaries are all great opportunities to show appreciation for your employees’ hard work and celebrate the major strides your company has made — especially when you consider the average corporate life cycle lasts only 12 to 15 years. But if done right, your company anniversary ideas also can become a great PR tool to promote your story.

Storytelling is one of the best tools in both the public relations and marketing arsenals. Stories allow employees and consumers to connect with your company in a very real way and can establish empathy and, more importantly, loyalty.
If you tell the story of your company’s one-of-a-kind founding, the achievements your company has made, and the obstacles that it has overcome, you encourage people to root for your success, facilitating a greater identification and buy-in.
