And just like that, the holiday season is upon us! It’s time to think about planning the perfect holiday party to share with your employees and coworkers. Truth be told, the holiday season can be one of the most stressful times of the year. While workplace parties may seem insignificant, they’re more important than you think. It’s your opportunity to celebrate your employees, show them their happiness is important, and bring even more positivity to your work environment. Not to mention, in the middle of the holiday hustle and bustle and inevitable stress, a fun holiday party to look forward can be a great boost for morale.
What type of party?
To begin, you need to determine what time of party you’re going to throw. This may determine a day of the week that would be more appropriate than others. If you’re going to have your holiday party during your normal working hours, then it’s pretty easy to select your date and schedule accordingly. However, if you’re considering something like an after-hours event or something a bit more formal, choosing a Friday or Saturday evening will likely be a better option. Once you’ve determined what style of event you will be having, you can choose the perfect date to schedule the fun! Whether in the form of an office memo or festive evite, be sure your employees save the date! Include key information like location details, what to expect, whether family is invited to come along, etc. Or, follow-up with a more detail-oriented invitation a bit later.
Start thinking about the details of your event as early as possible. The sooner you can make key decisions regarding the details for the party, the less you’ll have to stress about later on. Consider the formality of your party and make your food and menu choices accordingly. Whether it’s a buffet or fun catering from your office’s go-to taco spot, make sure you get plenty of food for everyone!
