With the holiday season approaching, it’s time to plan your company’s Christmas party. In order to make it a party everyone will enjoy, you must consider several important decisions: how much to spend per person; whether to hold the party in the office, a restaurant or other venue; and whether or not to allow your coworkers to bring family members.
The main purpose of the Christmas party is to let off some steam at the end of a long year where everyone has worked very hard. Thus, it is important to recognize certain people for their achievements with awards. Why not hold a raffle or hand out prizes? This kind of moment requires you to draw people’s attention away from their conversations, and the best way to do so is with a projector.
With these suggestions in mind, here are a few tips on how to host a company Christmas party with recommendations on the best projectors for a party atmosphere:
- Make a Budget
According to data collected by outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Incorporated, 65 percent of companies surveyed in the U.S. planned to host a holiday party in 2018. Of these, nearly 25 percent had plans to increase their party budgets compared to years prior.
How much should you spend on a Christmas party? A good rule of thumb is to budget $75 per person.
- Set a Date
This step will need to work with the venue you select (see next tip). Keep in mind that a party at the end of the week signals to the staff that it will be more relaxed with plenty of alcoholic drinks. Many companies are moving their parties to Monday or Tuesday nights to counteract that perception.
- Book a Venue
The end of the year is a busy time for many venues as they will be booked for parties, weddings, dances, etc. Book the venue as soon as possible and have a few open dates in mind.
- Select a Menu and Bar Plan
This is where you can let your coworkers know that they are appreciated: food and drink. An overly elaborate menu and open bar may blow your budget, but it will pay dividends when it comes to overall job satisfaction.
- Plan Activities
Use your projector to display staff photographs taken that year, to hold a raffle or to give out awards. Making it an interactive experience is a good idea.
