The corporate world is a fast-paced business-orientated landscape that thrives off of making moves and connections. Because of this, there isn’t much time left for fun. But who said work couldn’t be fun? And with the holidays coming up, nothing says fun like a corporate holiday party. Corporate holiday parties bring coworkers together while taking the boring out of it. It’s a time to reflect on the year behind and look to the future. So, how do you plan one of these events? We have a few tips!
It’s All About Timing
Have you ever gone to a party at 8am on a Tuesday? Chances are high that unless it was in elementary school, this hasn’t happened to you. And that’s because the timing of a party matters, no matter what type of party it is. And this rings true for corporate holiday parties as you want to book it at a time where coworkers won’t be at work, and preferably won’t need to be at work the next day either. Plan accordingly and you’ll be off to a great start!
Pick the Right Music
When you have the timing down and all your guests have arrived happily, it’s time to focus on keeping the vibe right and one way you can do that is by picking the right music. Music keeps people lively, in good spirits, and wanting to stay. You should always stay away from slow or sad music that will bring the mood down.
Do a Gift Exchange
Do you know what makes any even a million times better? Gifts. Gifts give people something to look forward to and if you’re keeping it a secret then it’ll be a nice surprise when they realize that you’ve got a gift exchange planned. Gifts are one way to show your coworkers how much you mean to them. It’s also another way to smooth things over with a coworker you may have been at odds with. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a gift exchange.
It’s All About the Food
In addition to music helping the vibe of your corporate holiday party, another area that you definitely shouldn’t skimp on is the food. Good food will leave people happy, talking, and satisfied. It all breaks up the party and kind of acts as a refueling point for the guests. And that’s where Island Fin Poke and our delicious poke bowls can come in!
