Create an Event that your Employees will Remember for Years to Come
Hosting a company holiday party with the help of a Bay Area corporate catering company shows your staff how much you appreciate them. Here are three powerful and underutilized ideas to make your party memorable and fun, inspire better performance and get 2016 off to a winning start.
1. Set up a fun gift exchange.
Get all of your employees involved in the festivities. Structure it like a Secret Santa, or make things even more interesting with a Yankee Swap/White Elephant exchange. Appoint one person to do the hard, unforgiving work of collecting everyone’s gift choices via email and pairing people off. Cater the gift exchange with Secret Santa themed noshes, like reindeer shaped cookies or peppermint chocolates.
2. Choose a unique theme.
Coordinate the party’s colors, activities and food around this motif. Choose something seasonal, such as Phantom of the Opera, A Christmas Carol (your boss can dress up as Scrooge and hand out bonuses hidden in fake lumps of coal), The Grinch Who Stole Christmas or Christmas Around the World. After you select your theme, give your Silicon Valley event catering team a heads up, so they can get to work on the menu and design appropriate drinks and dishes.
3. Host a decorating contest.
Engage your staff in a friendly competition that challenges their creativity and inspires interoffice rivalries. Divide staff members into teams, and allow them to decorate different parts of the office in the days or weeks leading up to the party. On the day of your event, announce the winner and award a prize.
