How to Organise an Awesome Office Holiday Party

Office-Christmas-Party

When the time comes for the end of the year office party, you’ve got two options in front of you. You could go the safe route and try to appease your boss, or if you’re the boss, you could throw an awesome party that your employees will talk about for years to come. Just think about it: would you rather have a party with horderves or a party with strippers and topless waitresses? Depending upon the setting, you could have the office party outside of the office and at a location with topless barmaids.

The downside is that it might be offensive to some of your employees, so let them know ahead of time. Here are a few more steps to take to ensure your office party is one that is nothing short of amazing.

Set a date and time well in advance.

Make sure your employees have time to clear the schedules and can plan ahead. It might be a better choice to hold the party on a weekend rather than a weekday, as anyone who chooses to drink can do so without worrying about the hangover at work the next morning.

Figure out your budget.

Extravagance can be a lot of fun, but you also don’t want to spend too much on the party. Plan out your budget and take pains not to go over it. If you have to answer to anyone else, they’ll be impressed by your forethought; if you’re the boss, then you’ll save yourself money that way. Don’t allow the budget to make the party boring, but don’t go wild with it, either.

Plan out the party.

Events, food, booze, decorations, and theme. That should be your mantra. Keep all five of these elements in mind as you plan for the party, and you can be sure it’ll be a hit. Knowing the kind of food and entertainment to provide – whether it’s a covered dish or topless barmaids – will keep the party at just the right level of fun.

Establish an ‘outside of work’ theme.

Your employees should feel free to speak and act freely without worrying about their jobs when the weekend is over. After all, if they’re at a party with strippers and topless waitresses such as these girls from Cover Girl, work is likely the last thing on their minds. Make sure they know that the party is strictly for fun and to be themselves, rather than the model employees they normally strive to be.

Making sure all of this is understood will mean your employees have a great office party they won’t soon forget.

How to Throw an Awesome Corporate Event

Corporate Event

Hosting corporate events, whether on a regular basis or as a special promotion, help to bring your business up to the next level. Employees are often able to socialize in a manner that’s a bit more casual than the work environment, and your company has the opportunity to reach out to a new audience. However, establishing the type of event is the first step in the process.

Define the Goals
Corporate events range in purpose and style. Some companies throw them as a celebration for all that has been achieved in recent years while others host events to network with interested buyers in the field. Hosting a truly powerful event means that you need to define goals and have a purpose. This purpose could be to showcase new promotional models, to display goods to a specific subset or clientele or to allow employees from different departments to share ideas in a casual setting.
Prepare Visual Effects
Whether you want your employees to talk about a new idea for the business or you want prospective buyers to see promotional models, craft visual effects to decorate the space where the event will take place. These models should inform individuals about the benefits of services, the goals for the following year or the steps to take to teach those goals. Additionally, these visual effects help to reinforce the main focus of the event and to keep everyone up-to-date and well-informed on where you see the business going in the near future.
Food, Drinks and Entertainment 
While this element might seem unimportant to certain types of events, ensuring that guests have enough food and beverages will help to keep them at the event. Conversations can wane, and people can grow tired at reviewing the same elements of any one project or company feature. However, when a tantalizing new appetizer or beverage is slated to come out in just a little while, you can convince them to stay. Furthermore, having some entertainment, whether it is music throughout or a comedian during the middle of the day, helps to keep individuals interested in the event.Party
“Favors” 
When your guests or your employees leave the event, you want to ensure that they don’t forgot about it. Provide promotional products to individuals or entities that might be interested in working with your company or buying items from it. For your employees, leave them with a little token of appreciation that lets them know that without their hard work and dedication to the company, such an event would not be possible.Some of the event elements will depend upon what type of event you are throwing, but these are some guidelines that will help you no matter what it is. if you’re looking to add a bit of pizzazz to your Brisbane event, why not hire the girls from Covergirl Promotional Models?
