The holidays are here. It’s a time for gratitude and giving. It’s also a time for family, friends and festivities. It’s a time when many companies throw an office holiday party. Office holiday parties can be difficult to plan. You likely have a large guest list with a limited budget. You also probably have a large group of people with different ideas of what makes a party fun.
If you’re hosting or in charge of your office holiday party this year, the following ideas will make your colleagues and associates merry throughout the season.
Make It An All Day Event
Why not throw your office party on a Friday during regular work hours and have it last the entire day? Your colleagues and associates may have other commitments and can’t make an evening or weekend party. Start the day with a hearty and wholesome breakfast. Warm up with an array of hot chocolate, teas and coffees while playing games or sing carols.
Consider treating employees to massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. It will be a great time for employees to unwind, relax and relieve any holiday stress.
Get your organization and employees active in the community by giving back. Start by hosting a toy and food drive. Volunteer as a team at a local food pantry or homeless shelter. The season is after all about spreading goodwill toward others.
Host a Cultural Potluck
Invite employees to bring their favorite food that they love or that represents their culture. It will be a tasty way to experience different traditions and heritages.
Give An Afternoon Off
Treat your employees to an early lunch and then give them the rest of the day off. They can use the time to do last minute shopping or spend time with their family.
There are endless ideas for office holiday parties. The basic purpose is to show appreciation to your employees for all they do.
