The Importance of Event Staffing

We all know events take many people to execute smoothly. Sometimes organizations rely on staff, volunteers, young professional groups, college clubs, or past participants to get the job done. Event staffing roles may include stuffing nametags, greeting guests, checking-in guests, preparing a ballroom or inventorying a silent auction.

So, what does a small event planning company do when you need on-site event support? You rely on people who LOVE events. At Do Good Events, we have event planners and event specialists. They work with us before, during and after an event. They are crucial to the success of our business. Our staffing team helps to make our clients’ events as perfect as they can be. 

Who are Event Specialists?

Our Event Specialist staffing team consists of people from all areas of life. Some are recent college graduates looking to get event planning experience. And others are working professionals who love events and recently retired folks who want a part-time casual position, and more. 

Why Event Staffing is Fun!

In a world where finding staff can be difficult, this type of event staffing role has been a great fit for people who want to get involved in the community. People get to experience the excitement and energy of in-person events. Plus, being an Event Specialist is a great way to learn about a ton of local organizations and companies. Our staff also gets a behind the scenes view into the world of event planning and execution. 

One of our Event Specialists said, “I love the event staffing role because I get to be a part of many different communities doing so much good. Recently, I was able to support raising funds for school band instruments, and then for children’s cancer research! It is an honor to be part of these powerful events!”
