Is it time to start making plans for your Christmas and summer parties?
Whether you’re a thriving enterprise or a small start-up company, there’s no denying that the backbone of your business is your employees. They are the ones that meet the deadline and work tirelessly to ensure that your objectives are met. So how do you show your appreciation for them? Our London summer parties and Christmas parties could hold the answer!
If you’ve been in the corporate industry for a while, you know that the summer and Christmas seasons bring about an influx of office parties. Sure, you might have had your fair share of team-building games, murder mystery parties, pub crawls or lavish dinners but do you know what these events can do for your business?
It’s more than just a booze fest or partying on the company credit card! There are several benefits to the traditional summer and Christmas party that you might not realise.
Boost office morale
It’s been a long year. Your employees have worked hard together which means that there has probably been some disagreements along the way. This can lead to toxic attitudes, which can ultimately infect your workforce.
Depending on the nature of these grievances, by creating a space where employees are encouraged to let their hair down and interact with each other on a personal and social level, you can help mend some of these broken bridges. Having fun together means associating those individuals with positivity and of course, positivity means a better working environment.
Giving end of year bonuses is sometimes, financially, just not an option. Sure, it would be terrific to spoil your employees like this, but then how do you keep it equal amongst them to show your appreciation? An end of year event is an excellent and neutral way of splurging on your employees to show that you value them and the work that they do. It’s important to remember that when efforts go unnoticed it can be detrimental to an employee’s confidence, which can ultimately affect their work ethic.
Mark a milestone
Any annual event tends to bring about reflection. Summer and Christmas celebrations are excellent opportunities to see how far you’ve come and what hurdles you have conquered. These ideas and reflections can be incorporated into the event’s agenda, so that everyone can be credited with your year’s successes. Not only does this promote team mentality but it’s also a terrific motivating factor.
