Winter workshop

The Ultimate Company Holiday Party Planning Checklist

Call it Christmas magic or simply the spirit of the season, but nothing gets us into a cheery mood quite like the string of holidays falling from November to January. Something about these holidays gives employees that extra push of motivation, making it the perfect time of year to plan something special for the office!

Fun and creative holiday parties are one way to get employees in the holiday spirit while simultaneously thanking them for their hard work. To make your company holiday party a hit this year, follow our ultimate party-planning checklist below!

Solidify a date early

Office Holiday PartyMost calendars during the holidays consist of a myriad of colors highlighting different events and tasks to complete. Thus, picking the perfect date is tough when there are so many obligations to plan around.

You could consider sending out a poll to employees to find the best time for the majority of people. Try hosting the party on a Friday night a few hours after the workday concludes to increase likelihood of attendance.

And give out the date of the party in advance to allow everyone time to plan, of course!

Choose a holiday theme

Come up with a fun holiday theme for the party where employees can show off their creativity. Encourage them to come dressed in ugly Christmas sweaters or Christmas pajamas. Once you pick a theme, choose decorations and goodies to match. Plan your menu around the theme and include foods and treats for diets of all kinds, like gluten-free and vegan.

Select an intriguing venue

Your employees deserve a special treat during the holiday season. Transform your annual company holiday party by selecting a unique location employees will be actually excited to visit.

Take the group out to a rock gym, an arcade, a laser tag maze, a trampoline park, or a stand-up comedy show. Choosing a fun location that allows employees to let loose and enjoy their time outside the office makes for a more memorable holiday party.

Spice up your activities

The holidays should be fun and engaging; people like to set time aside this time of year to do things like see Christmas lights, go sledding, watch movies, and make cookies. Your company holiday party should be no different.

Offer a wide range of activities to satisfy employees of all types, from group carnival games to your very own casino night!

Include music, as well as fun surprises that guests won’t be expecting, like inflatables or arcade games.
