The office Christmas party is the most important event you’ll organise all year. Not only does it reward your team’s hard work, it’s a great way to keep spirits high and encourage a positive mind-set for the year ahead. In a recent employee survey conducted by workplace consultants Peldon Rose, 54% of respondents reported they experienced Christmas workplace stress, while 69% said that such parties help them bond and build relationships with colleagues.
Reduced productivity is all too common over the winter months, as shorter days and miserable weather cause a slump in office morale. By treating your team to an extraordinary night of entertainment as gratitude for all their hard work, they’ll return to the office motivated to perform in the knowledge their efforts are recognised. So for those tasked with organising their annual office bash, the pressure is on not to mess it up! But as businesses rush to complete their workload ahead of the holidays, Christmas can be a stressful time for employees and employers alike. Throw in the last-minute headaches that inevitably come with finalising your party plans, whether it’s negotiating with suppliers, wrangling entertainment or fixing the catering – even the most organised are stretched to breaking point, at what is the busiest time of year. So take the stress out of arranging your big night, and leave it to the professionals.
