Planning a holiday office party can be a logistical nightmare, especially when you don’t know where to begin. Luckily, we have a few steps to make it easier.
1. Set a Budget
A good party doesn’t need to cost more — a buffet can delight as much as a five-course meal. Consider how you want to spend your money (e.g., DJs, food, fancy venue or decor).
2. Outline the Basics
You’ll need to determine the theme, venue, time and a rough estimate of guests before you can do anything else.
3. Get a Team
Together Instead of doing it all yourself, consider forming a party planning team to help with logistics, like booking a venue.
4. Think About Activities
What will people do at your party? Will they eat, dance, exchange gifts, receive awards, play games or something different? Think about what your employees will enjoy the most.
5. Set Expectations
Prior to the event, communicate appropriate conduct and dress codes. If there will be alcohol, define limits and appropriate etiquette.
6. Raise the Hype
Ensure employees are excited for the party by hyping it up at work. Keep it top of mind in internal communications by mentioning it frequently as the date approaches.
If you do it right, you’ll have a party that employees won’t stop talking about for months!
