You want employees to have something to look forward to at the end of the year, so doing a last minute affair isn’t going to have the same effect.

Make sure it’s as diverse and inclusive as possible

This is essential, and it’s one reason why big parties are usually better than small ones. First off, you want different groups within the business to mix. This is how new friends are made and it will only improve your company’s culture and retention. Secondly, smaller parties increase the risk of forcing groups together when they don’t get on. This can lead to a sour atmosphere on what should be a really fun occasion.

Make sure it’s hugely entertaining but not hugely extravagant

The idea isn’t to show off to competitors. Obviously you’re going to spend some money, but the focus should be on creating a great experience. Remember: if you have a fantastic Christmas party in a beautiful, themed venue, you won’t need to brag about it – your attendees will do that for you.

Make sure it’s booked far ahead of time

Have a large Christmas party is cost effective and so is booking in advance. The biggest bonus, however, is that you give people time to get excited and to put it in their diaries.

There was a period, several years ago now, when having a large office Christmas party was distinctly passé. Or at least that was the refrain during an era of financial belt-tightening. Times have now (thankfully) changed; Christmas parties are back on the menu, and that’s a good thing. They’re an inclusive, fun and usually well-deserved conclusion to year’s worth of hard work.
