Some companies feel that Corporate Christmas Parties are unnecessary. Picking a venue, a theme and not to mention finding the time to plan an Event can be overwhelming. At Event Central, however, we believe that they can offer long-term benefits. Here are our top 5 reasons in favour of holding one this Year.
This is an opportunity for your team members to get to know each other better. In relaxed settings, where the stresses of work don’t apply team members can be at ease with each other. This, in turn, can allow team members to get to know a different side of each other. A Better understanding of colleagues can lead to improved communication, teamwork and consequently an increase in productivity.
Undoubtedly, benefits and flexibility have never been so crucial to attracting and retaining key talent. Setting yourself apart from the competition is now of great importance. Something as simple as a Christmas party can establish you as a company that values its employees and a great place to work.
“Salary” or “perk” envy is a point often overlooked. In view of this, it’s important to demonstrate that every member of staff is valued. Christmas parties are, in essence, a fantastic way to demonstrate that every member of the team contributes to a company’s success. If it’s been a great year, Corporate Christmas parties are an opportunity for celebration. If it’s been a difficult year, they offer the chance to set a positive tone for a new year.
Richard Branson knows a thing or two about supporting growth. Most notably he credits his happy customers with happy employees. Recognising employees hard work will undoubtedly make employees feel appreciated. This, in turn, can lead to higher customer satisfaction rates.
Socialising in relaxed settings will allow your employees to see your “normal” side. Those who show that they are approachable will undoubtedly yield the benefits of improved communication with their employees. You never know where a solution to a problem or a great idea will come from.
