Throwing a little holiday soiree for your office can be a lot of fun, but let’s face it, it can also be a ton of work. In order to make things go smoothly for you and your coworkers, follow these 7 tips to having an excellent office holiday party.
#1 Spruce Up the Place
The festivities may be a bit of a downer if you are trying to party in a dirty office space, but with your current workload, you probably don’t have the time to give the conference room and other parts of the office a good scrubbing. Hiring commercial cleaning services to come in and get everything spick and span will take the load off of you.
The holidays are a busy time of year for everyone. So, it is best to start your planning early, that way you can get those invites out ASAP. You will want to secure your conference room (or another venue) and have a couple of activities lined up to keep people entertained.
#3 Stack the Buffet Table
Parties are a total bust if the food isn’t top-notch. You want to make sure that you have plenty of choices to keep everyone happy and well-fed. If you cater the meal, you will have complete control of the available snacks, but the cost can be prohibitive. If you are having a potluck style party, you may want to put out a sign-up sheet broken down by category. That way you don’t end up with 15 desserts and no vegetables.
#4 Timing is Everything
Like we said before, the holidays are a busy time of year, and the social calendars fill up fast. If you want to get the highest attendance rate at your office holiday party, hold it during actual office hours.
#5 Don’t Leave a Mess
Cleaning up after your party is the key ingredient to being allowed to through one again next year. If you leave the conference room trashed, management is unlikely to give you the green light to be festive in the future. If your clean up time is limited or it is just too much to handle, the commercial cleaning services that spruced up the place, in the beginning, can be called back in to set things to rights.
