It’s the most wonderful time of the year, full of holiday cheer, festive gatherings and big “to do” lists! When planning your corporate holiday event, here are a few ways to respect everyone’s time during the holiday season and give back to your staff, vendors and holiday guest list.
Consider hosting during business hours. This is a great way to appreciate staff without adding another after-hours event to the already-busy holiday month. An offsite breakfast or lunch is an exciting way to change up the workweek and make staff feel special.
Consider hosting before or after the holiday craze. Hosting in November or January is a great way to appreciate your employees or invitees without competing with their personal schedules during the buzz of the holiday month.
When hosting outside of business hours, allow plus ones. Or to really impress, consider hosting an event for the entire family to attend. A Sunday brunch with Santa is not only budget-friendly in comparison to an evening reception, but an event for all ages to enjoy. Everyone will appreciate the added time with (instead of away from) their loved ones!
Save time on the road. Pick a location that is convenient for the majority of guests to travel to. The easier you make the travel for your guests, the less the party will feel like a mandatory task. Guests also appreciate on-site parking.
