How to plan your holiday party.
Throwing a company party is a great way to get into the holiday spirit and reward your employees for all the hard work they've done this year. However, for your party to be successful, you have a lot of planning and coordination to take care of. Not sure where you should start when it comes to event planning? Then try out these tips to help you plan your holiday party.
Cover the Basics
First, you need to establish the general details for the event. For instance, you should create a plan that details the following:
- Time and date
- Guest count
- Food and drink selections
- Event agenda
While these details do not need to be set in stone, you need to have a good grasp on these basics before you can start taking more concrete planning steps, like hiring a caterer.
Choose a Good Time for the Party
Most businesses hold holiday parties during the lunch hour. Lunch hour events tend to cost less and avoid any infringements on the employees' personal time. However, some businesses also do holiday parties on a larger scale and host an evening event. While this is great because more employees can attend, evening events also come at a higher cost. So, weigh the pros and cons when deciding when to hold your staff holiday party.
Set Etiquette Standards
Leading up to the event, remind your employees that they are attending a professional party. While they should feel free to have fun, they should do so in ways that make others feel comfortable and welcome. You should send out a companywide email covering etiquette issues to avoid, such as excessive drinking, wearing improper attire, and so on.
