blog post 3 ideas for activities to mark retirement

Your favorite colleague is about to retire and you'd like to mark the occasion with a special retirement activity? Or are you about to retire yourself and would like to invite your colleagues to spend some quality time with you? As we all know, before retiring to the seaside, you all need to say your goodbyes, and in a fun way.

Here are 3 ideas for a retirement party in style!



If you really want to mark the occasion and suggest a new and unusual activity: go and record all together in a professional recording studio!

For a whole afternoon (or even longer if you feel like it), get all behind the microphone and share a great time together 😉

You can cover a well-known song, and even rewrite the lyrics! In fact, that's exactly what Alain and his colleagues, whose images you can see on our Instagram post, did: they covered "We Are The World", changed the lyrics with the help of a professional lyricist, and recounted in song anecdotes they'd all experienced together.

If you choose this activity, we can organize it directly in the Hedayat Music studios! Our team and sound engineers will be on hand to guide you and help you make the most of the experience. If you'd like, you can even choose to film the recording, and a few days later you'll receive a video souvenir of your studio experience! Isn't that wonderful? So, what are you waiting for to tell your colleagues that they're going to kill it at the studio?



Second option, still musical: suggest a blind test! And if you don't know what it is, let us explain 😉

This game consists in making people guess the artist and/or the title of a song by playing only a short extract of a few seconds. Of course, a blind test for the sake of a blind test isn't very symbolic when it comes to celebrating retirement... So to add a personal touch, we suggest you base it on songs from Peter's generation (or Michelle's, or Marc's!), or songs you've heard him sing over the years, or that have made a lasting impression on you, etc. It'll be a hit.

You can be sure that he'll be into it for the whole game, and it may also remind him of certain moments in his life that he shared with his colleagues. Bonus: the winning team can be offered a prize, for example! The big advantage of the blind test is that it doesn't require a budget. But there's nothing to stop you organizing an aperitif to make the moment even more convivial. The aim is to celebrate the new retiree after all!



There's no better way to reminisce about the good times we've had together than with a quiz on the future retiree.

Funny anecdotes about him, questions about his tastes, hobbies and life... And whoever knows him best wins the game! To do this, ask your other colleagues to come up with different questions about the famous Peter, and write them down on a piece of paper to slip into a hat or box. A prize can be awarded to the person who answers the most questions correctly, for an even greater challenge. This could be chocolates, for example. There's no reason why it should just be the future retiree who goes home with gifts, is there?

And as with the blind test, this game is even more fun at an aperitif 😉

And there you have it! You can do all sorts of fun things for a retirement party, as long as the soon-to-be retiree is celebrated and you do something to mark the occasion, as he deserves!
