Tips for a great Scottsdale company holiday party
Involve your employees in the planning!
If you are at a loss with what your team wants to do to celebrate the holidays together, take a poll! Provide a few options for activities around town and see what option the majority of the company is excited about. People will feel more involved in the process and therefore more excited to join in the celebration come party time!
If it’s outside of work hours, it better be awesome
Nobody wants to spend extra time at the office – so don’t plan an evening event that should have been held at noon. Lunch break parties are allowed to be low maintenance since it happens during paid hours. But if you’re asking people to use their free time to enjoy a company holiday party, you should be busting out the big guns to create a great night!
Plan a (casual) activity
So you find a venue, buy some drinks, people show up and… now what? Not everyone feels comfortable depending on small talk for the entire party. Having an activity to break up the conversations can help people feel more at ease and find more things to talk about other than
And we’re not saying set up a craft table for people to make Santa hats out of construction paper! Plan an activity that adults actually want to try, like… ahem… the great pedal tavern idea we laid out above.
Promote a dress theme
This one may be a controversial opinion, but we love dress themes – especially casual ones. For example, planning an ugly Christmas sweater party lets people know that they don’t need to dress up, and arriving in a festive sweatshirt is supported! There is an easy ice breaker for everyone to talk about their sweaters and you get to feel cozy and comfortable all evening long.
Give your employees gifts
There aren’t many people out there who don’t enjoy opening a gift. Whether you plan a gift exchange among the employees or have your own presents to share with your team, opening something during a Christmas party makes it feel even more special! Don’t underestimate our inner children – everyone enjoys tearing the wrapping paper off of a fun gift!
The best gift you can offer your team during a Scottsdale holiday company party is planning a night of stress-free fun and festivities.
