How to organize an office party?
An office party is a good opportunity to bring together employees, and even partners or clients, in a festive and relaxed atmosphere. It is very important to create a relationship of trust and proximity between all these actors who must work together to ensure the prosperity of the company. Here are all the elements to take into account to ensure the success of this type of event.
1- The date of the party
In general, it is recommended that the reception be held on the weekend so that guests can recuperate before returning to work. We also recommend that you schedule the party during a time when the volume of work is low for all departments. This way, everyone can attend the event and have a great time, without worrying about the decrease in productivity caused by the recreational day.
2- The budget
Once the date is set, you must define the budget allocated to the party since all the following steps depend on it. It will serve as a beacon to avoid excessive spending that could harm the company. This is your benchmark for determining the number of guests and selecting the reception hall.
Depending on your budget and the occasion, you must then define the number of guests at the reception. You can limit the guests to company employees. It is also possible to invite their family, partners or even customers and prospects.
1- The reception room
Now you can choose a reception hall that fits your budget and can accommodate all your guests. Of course, it is also possible to organize the party in your premises if the space is suitable and if you have the necessary equipment (tables, chairs, stage and many others). In addition, it will save you rental fees.
When it comes to food, the first thing to consider is whether you want to have a dinner, a cocktail party, a lunch or even a buffet. You must then find a competent caterer who will be able to meet your expectations while respecting your budget. We always advise you to proceed to a tasting session before validating your order to avoid bad surprises.
3- Animation and atmosphere
Finally, it is necessary to think about the animation so that your guests do not get bored. Depending on your budget and the type of event you want to organize, you can hire an animator, a DJ, a band or a musical group.
Organizing a successful office party is a complicated mission, especially if you have no experience in this field. There are so many elements to consider and choosing providers can be difficult.
