Most offices have an annual holiday celebration to show appreciation for its employees and allow time for colleagues to mix and mingle outside of work hours. They often take place in the workplace just after office hours. Presentations are frequently given and noteworthy employees are awarded for their performance. If you’re in charge of organizing this year’s holiday office party, here is what you need to do to get started planning the best holiday party your office has ever had.
Set the date
You first need to decide when the party will take place, since everything else will be planned around this date. Keep in mind that some dates will be very busy during the holiday season and some days less so. Choosing a midweek day will often give you more options for entertainment, catering, venues, etc.
Decide the guest list and venue
You don’t necessarily need a final number just yet but you should have a ballpark number in mind. Are you inviting all employees? Certain departments? Are spouses and families invited? After you have received back your RSVPs you will be able to provide a final head count to your caterer and any other relevant vendors. You also need to finalize the location. The office party will probably be at the office, but where exactly?
Send “Save the Date” cards
As soon as you know the date and exact location of the party, it’s time to send “Save the Date” cards to your office mates. Notifying everyone as soon as possible will ensure the best turn out during the busy time of the year.
