As your business grows and experiences success, one of the best things you can do for your team is make your parties / gathering fun. Too often people put fun on the back burner.
1. Have a DJ & a Dance Floor
Good music allows people to have a great time. Make sure you pick a DJ that will play a wide variety of stuff and please everybody. Good Vibes!
2. Involve Pizza
Party and Pizza are basically synonymous when it comes to having a great business event. Everyone loves pizza!
3. Transform Your Office to a Place of Party
Have a group of your employees or interior decorators re-decorate the office to fit a theme. This will make the party feel like its not at work.
4. Allow employees to bring at least one person from outside the company for the occasion
It’s important for your employees family and friends see where they work. It can also be great PR, so bring your A game.
If you have extra money, hire a bartender for the occasion to whip up some unique drinks for everyone. Make and name a special drink just for that event!
6. Fun Board Games
Board games are not bored games if you pick the right ones. If you are hosting family, be sure the games you pick are kid friendly and they can understand it.
7. Surprise Awards
There is nothing better than surprising one of your team members with a special award. Giving that recognition is front of everyone will make this gathering a meaningful event. It may even bring some tears!
