Did you know happy employees are 20% more productive?
One great way to increase enjoyment in the workspace is to throw a party and reward your employees for their hard work.
Are you wondering how to plan a business party? Not to worry!
In this guide, we’ll go over corporate event planning tips.
1. Plan the Party and Save the Date
Try and start brainstorming for your business party up to four months beforehand.
This will give you time to research caterers and different conference centers.
Ask for help from other creative employees to help you plan the party. This way, you can share the planning responsibilities.
Find out from your guests of honor when they are available for the party. Once you know what dates are free, pick one. You can send out save-the-date invitations in advance so people can mark it on their calendar.
2. Choose a Theme
To make your party fun and exciting, consider picking a unique theme. You can decorate the venue according to the theme you choose.
You can host a costume party or throw a breakfast event. Throw a luau party in the middle of winter to boost office morale. If you know your employees like trivia or bingo, you could host a game night.
If you need help and have the budget available, call an interior decorator.
3. Pick a Venue
What space you choose will depend on the number of attendees and who you’re celebrating.
If you only have a small gathering, you could throw the party at a worker’s home or the office.
For a fancier gala, book a local hall.
4. Food and Drink
If you’re serving food at the event, you’ll want to hire a caterer.
Find out from your employees what kind of food they prefer. You should also find out if anyone is a vegan or if they have any allergies. You want there to be food choices for everyone to enjoy.
With your planning team, talk about if you’ll offer alcoholic drinks at your event. Find out if there are any local liquor laws for a business party. Your company could get in trouble if someone gets hurt because they misused alcohol.
If you decide to offer alcohol, hire a responsible bartender.
They will help watch guests and make sure minors don’t drink. Some caterers even provide this service with their food.
5. Hire Entertainment
You can hire entertainment for a large-scale event.
Choose from a comedian, singer, or a master of ceremonies. Make sure you approve the material beforehand.
