Holiday parties are commonplace at the end of the year for many workplaces. If it’s your assignment to plan the annual Thanksgiving or Christmas party this year, you will need some help because juggling several tasks simultaneously can be challenging. On top of doing the organizing, you will also have to come in under budget.
The following are several helpful tips for organizing the party plans for your company’s annual holiday party. You can make planning easier by having The Crab Shack do the catering.
The initial step is nailing down the details of the holiday party. Below is a basic list of topics you should address after you’ve put together your organizing team. Give the members responsibilities, so they can share the load.
If you want a well-planned office party, the above are the essentials. Several items can’t be addressed until the date and time are determined. Thus, it’s smart to start communicating with your company’s leadership early about making the decisions for each item.
Usually, the best time to schedule an office holiday party is during the regular lunch hour. Over the past ten years, this has been the trend. Surveys have discovered that approximately 50% of holiday parties took place during lunch. In contrast, a nighttime party at a restaurant will be more expensive and complicated to plan.
You have to consider that some co-workers cannot attend because of job responsibilities. Someone may have to handle customer service calls during lunchtime. In any case, holiday parties scheduled during the lunch hour will minimize expenses and reduce the chance that the party will interfere with employees’ personal time and commitments. Hosting the party on-premises will also conserve time and money.
