Why should you start planning your company's holiday party now?
Kids are getting ready to go back to school and Fall has come into stores. Why are we talking holiday parties already? Here are just a few reasons why you should be thinking about it right now.
But . . . Before we start with that, why should companies host a holiday party?
It is an opportunity to show your appreciation to your staff, partners and clients.
Company parties help make your staff, partners and clients feel appreciated which in turn will boost the moral of the company. It also gives an opportunity for everyone to build a closer relationship outside of work which will help with collaboration at work.
So . . . Why should you start planning your holiday party now?
1) The earlier you can get your date out to your clients, partners and staff the better. The holidays are so busy for everyone. You will have better attendance and more time to promote the event.
2) The holiday season is short. There are a lot of companies and organizations hosting parties. There are also a lot of personal parties that people attend. There are only three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The sooner you start thinking about your party the more choices you have for location and vendors. There is more of a chance of getting the vendors and location that you want.
3) If you are going to spend the money, you want to make sure to have it well planned. Starting to think about it sooner will allow more time to make sure it is planned out and not thrown together. This is also an additional task that you are adding to your plate while still maintaining your day to day work. The more time you have to plan the less stressful it will be.
So, don’t wait to start planning. At least get the ball rolling by picking a date and booking your location.
