It’s that time of year again! The fourth quarter is wrapping up and holiday cards from friends and colleagues begin to cover the office display. The holidays are quickly approaching, and there are so many options for hosting a holiday party to thank your team for a job well done. Everyone feels festive during the last few months of the year, and it’s a great morale booster to invite that spirit into the workplace. Here are some ideas to spark inspiration for your end-of-the-year holiday office parties.
Enjoy a Winter-Themed Cooking Class
Many cities offer a plethora of alternative activities like cooking classes. Look for ones that provide interesting, engaging lessons and involve preparing delicious themed meals. Reserve an entire class and enjoy an alternative approach to the classic holiday party.
Host a Cubicle-Decorating Contest
Throughout the month of December, get the staff excited about the holidays by planning a cubicle decorating contest. Offer prizes for first, second, and third place. When the time comes, have everyone vote on the best décor and award prizes during a festive office holiday party.
Go on a Team Outing
Take the crew out for an afternoon on the town by signing up for engaging team-building activities. From Topgolf and food tours to escape rooms and archery, group events boost morale and inspire creativity that employees will bring back to work in the new year. Give your staff an end-of-the-year celebration they’ll remember.
There’s no better time to give back to the community than during the holiday season. Schedule a volunteer outing where employees serve dinner at a homeless coalition, visit children in the hospital, or walk dogs at the shelter. There’s no better bonding experience than volunteering and helping to improve others’ quality of life.
Bring the Party Inside
Set aside a day for a communal office potluck. Coworkers will love the chance to show off their treasured family recipes or baking prowess. As a bonus, this event is easy to set up and doesn’t add too much pressure to an already hectic time. Staff can relax, enjoy a home-cooked meal, and chat about holiday plans.
