We all know that throughout the year we have to work hard in office and once the Christmas season is upon us everyone has a tendency of having a holiday. Before the office closes for the festive season, it’s always good to celebrate the hard work which was put in by the employees by organizing a party. Firstly, since it’s an office organizing a party might not be that easy if it’s going to be the first time. Therefore, if you are leading the charge, you could simply prepare a business plan and propose it to the management. If they are satisfied with what you have proposed they might give you the budget to organize it. Employee charging should not be done since the party is given as an appreciation. Therefore, you could always make it a point to ask for a good budget since you might not be able to recover most of it.
Since organizing is no easy task, you could gather a small team around you so that they would help you out. You could assign different individuals to look into different things. Before bookings are placed its always good to get quotes just to know what is being offered. You could send one individual to get quotes for the venue while another would get quotes for the food. This way you could get the best of everything for a lower price. Some venues have a tendency of offering facilities once they are booked. Therefore, you could simply look into a venue which offers dance floor hire and you could get that covered.
You could also check if table and chair hire is possible and if it is you could simply book that venue. Once the venue is booked, you could start preparing the invitations. This could be sent over the employees in advance so that they would start preparing for the event. Since it’s the festive season they must have made plans to fly out of the country or go visit their loved ones. Therefore, it’s important to inform them in advance so that they’d be present during the event. If employees of different ethnicities are present it’s important to order food which fits their preferences. This way no one would be ignored and this could be looked upon during the planning session. Ultimately, the end of objective is to congratulate everyone for their hard work and if that’s achieved during the party you could consider it as a successful event. Ultimately, these are a few things which could be looked into if you are planning on having an office party.
