All work and no play can make employees a rather dull group, don’t you think? Depending on the type of company you are part of, there might be room to hold a couple of corporate parties, get-togethers or picnics throughout the year. If you should be in charge of organizing and planning this delicate task, there are plenty of ways to approach this responsibility. When it comes to the many types of corporate party themes you might come across, which ones sound like a good fit for your office? Below you will find a few popular corporate party occasions and ideas to consider:
Christmas: Many corporate offices hold a Christmas party with spiced eggnog, mistletoe, and the lighting of a modest tree. Some associations even participate in a Secret Santa gift exchange, which makes sure no one leaves the party empty handed. When planning this sort of corporate party, decorations really come in handy with food coming in a close second. If you don’t feel comfortable planning a holiday party with religious affiliations, New Years Eve celebrations offer employees a fun opportunity to watch the ball drop amongst co-workers.
Celebrating an Accomplishment: Perhaps the company has landed a much sought after client and it’s time to reward the hard work of everyone involved. Maybe the office has exceeded company expectations, increased productivity to exceptional levels, or won an award; all of these accomplishments are reasons to hold a corporate party. A little unwinding after a rewarding achievement is just the thing to strengthen the bond between employer and employees.
Picnics: Since family is a big part of the lives of employees, it is a good idea to provide outlets showing that outside-of-the-job commitments are recognized and respected. Holding a picnic where families get a chance to mingle with one another is a great way to further build the connection between company members. To make it a holiday themed party for the outdoors, choose yearly occasions such as Easter or 4th of July to plan your event. Some ideas to consider for these approaches may include Easter Egg Hunts for the kiddies or a small display of Independence Day fireworks.
