The holiday season is a magical time of year when companies can strengthen bonds among employees, celebrate the year’s successes, and spread a little joy in the work environment. Organizing Christmas events, such as company parties and team building activities, offers a unique opportunity to strengthen company culture, improve employee motivation and create lasting memories.
In this article we will give you some simple suggestions for organizing your next Christmas event.
Choosing the right Christmas event for you
The first key step in organizing a successful corporate Christmas event is to decide what type of event best fits your company culture and goals. Here are the most common alternatives:
Company dinners: Company dinners are the most classic option (but remain an evergreen) that offers employees an opportunity to socialize and strengthen bonds and spend festive moments together
Themed parties: Organizing a holiday-themed party can be fun and especially engaging for participants. Themed costumes and theme-related activities can make the event memorable.
Christmas team building: To strengthen bonds among team members, team building activities during the holidays can be an attractive option. These activities can be done either in the office or in ad hoc locations for the chosen activity.
Engagement of participants
Involving employees in planning and organizing Christmas events can help create a sense of ownership and involvement. For example:
- you could organize a committee of employees responsible for planning the event;
- Ask for suggestions and feedback on what they would like to see during the festival through the creation of specific surveys;
- Encourage employees to share creative and innovative ideas for the Christmas event.
Remembrance of festive times together
The combination of meaningful gift exchanges and capturing special moments through photography will help create lasting memories of the corporate Christmas event. These reminders not only foster employee engagement, but also solidify a sense of belonging to your company and its corporate culture.
Some practical examples might be:
- plan a gift exchange during the event; you might consider a corporate gift for all employees, or organizing a small Secret Santa by setting a moderate budget;
- envision an interactive photobooth that allows people to take branded photos, share them instantly on social media, or print them out and deliver them directly to the protagonists.
- provide for an “awards” time, where we also arrange for the screening of the most significant and entertaining moments that happened during the year that is about to end.
