Smart Tips to Host Holiday Office Parties On A Budget
For businesses, there are literally countless opportunities all round the year to show their employees and clients that they care. Holiday season in particular makes a delightful time to convey your wishes, thanks and appreciation to people who have supported your business. You need not break the bank by hosting a fancy shindig because even small gestures can mean a lot to your team.
You don’t need a special occasion to reach out to your team and make them feel special. Remind your employees that they are valuable assets to your organization during a job well done, company milestones or even corporate holidays.
In the new normal world, business owners are more likely to cut down on their holiday budgets. So, the key to make your office parties successful is to make the best use of the promotional dollars; having said that, there is no need for you to be a scrooge this holiday season. Come up with creative ideas to make the celebrations fun and joyful even when you scale it down.
Celebrate holiday cheer
Let the party venue shift indoors right into your office spaces if you have a fairly large space. It will go a long way to cut down the rental expenses of party venues, which will normally register an all-time high during holiday season. You can also consider the patio, car parking lot or the garden in your premises to conduct the party outdoors on a pleasant weather day.
Sometimes all it takes is a simple in-house party to leave a lasting impression in the minds of your employees. Get some freshly baked goodies, pizzas and other snacks that the employees will love to munch on at the end of the work day.
Games and contests
It will be an interesting party idea to plan some games and fun contests like puzzles or team building activities. The participants can be handed out custom giveaways as prizes for these fun themed holiday contests. When they take home these gifts that they can enjoy all year round, your brand visibility and popularity will reach an all-time high for sure.
Shop for budget friendly giveaways
Promotional giveaways and gift bags imprinted with your logo and message will let your employees take home a piece of your promotional message. Some of the popular holiday gifts include chocolate, tree décor items, apparels, bandanas , kitchen gadgets and so much more.
Tech accessories top the list as one of the most requested gift item. So, make sure to include wireless earbuds, phone wallets, stylus pens and other budget friendly handouts that will make proven winners. Make it special by adding holiday greetings, your logo and something interesting to make it truly special.
