Book your christmas party nowA Christmas party is something that everyone can get excited about. Start the preparation for it early and the team will get in the mood; and that’s always a great way to boost a positive atmosphere in the office. And after all, everybody wants something to look forward to right? If you’re still not convinced, here are some more reasons why an office Christmas party is a good idea…

Boost morale

Your Christmas party will double up as a team building event; it will have exactly the same morale boosting effect. It allows everyone to relax and take a break from work, while still connecting with work colleagues. If you have ambitious plans for the year ahead, a Christmas party will rejuvenate the attitudes and moods of your team. This will get them ready to meet the challenges of the year ahead.

Givers gain

Having worked hard all year, employees deserve to be thanked for their efforts. Let your staff know that you appreciate their hard work and want to give them something for their efforts. Treat your staff well now and they are the ones who will help your business flourish. Giving your employees something incentivises them to do more. I have heard this explained as ‘givers gain’ in the past, this explains that giving usually compels people to give back.

Happy staff = Productive staff.

Christmas parties can increase productivity. A good old party up can break down barriers and inspire fresh ideas and new relationships. Break down the barriers within the hierarchy to reunite your team and have them working in sync. Regardless of your job title we firmly believe everyone is human and most people like to let their hair down from time to time. Try it, you might be pleasantly surprised!

Loyalty

Employers should recognise the contribution of their employees, what better way to do this than throw a party. Many employees would agree that if they’re given the best benefits and bonuses, they’d end up staying longer with a company. This creates a long lasting and strong business. Christmas parties help maintain a loyal and happy team, and if that’s not enough to decide to throw/book a Christmas party then this should be…

Excuse to indulge

It’s a perfect excuse to indulge in some scrummy culinary delights with your peers and reflect on the year’s achievements. And of course, dressing up is a guilty pleasure that many of us possess. A Christmas party is the perfect excuse to put on your best suit or cocktail dress and enjoy a night of great food, drink and entertainment.
