Here are some tips below that will help boost the morale amongst your employees while producing a safe, fun, and cost-effective company holiday party. We have hosted a variety of holiday parties from elaborate cocktail receptions of over 500 people to intimate luncheons.
Pick the Best Time to Host Your Party
Think about your company’s industry when selecting the best time of day to host your party. Some organizations, such as hair salons, look for a Saturday evening as most salons have Sundays and Mondays off. Think about your employees and their personal time. Some may opt for a luncheon, as it provides a break during the day and will almost guarantee a higher attendance.
Select the Perfect Theme
Liven up your holiday event and pick a fun theme! This could help make your decision on a venue as well.
Choose a Venue and Menu
When researching venues, ask for a site tour. Our executive chef will work with you on creating an exceptional menu that will fit your theme. By hosting your party at an off-site location, most venues will already have an elaborate holiday décor display that will eliminate any decoration expenses.
Ways to “Manage” Alcohol Consumption
We provide packages that include a consumption bar, beverage tickets, and cash bar, which certainly help monitor the consumption. Most employees will prefer some type of alcohol included, so if you want a positive turnout one of these options could be the answer.
Consider Incorporating Fundraising
Many companies will decide to incorporate fundraising to their party. Toy, food, and clothing drives are most popular and build positive morale amongst employees while giving back to your community.
*Bonus Tip: Hosting a holiday event in the “off-season,” when employees are back from vacation, may also be a good idea to kick off the New Year!
