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.
