How to Celebrate the Holidays at Work

So many of us spend significant time at work because we’re driven to make the company successful. And whether we’re contributing to projects, furthering initiatives, closing deals, or measuring success, we must take the time to step back, take a deep breath, and relax. That’s why it’s so important to celebrate the holidays at work.

Holiday parties give us a reason to remember what’s important and why we work hard to make the company successful. And let’s face it, it’s a great excuse to get coworkers, leaders, and bosses together. So loosen up the ties, have fun, and celebrate the holidays at work with your work family!

Fun Ways to Celebrate the Holidays at Work

Of course, the big challenge for HR leaders and office managers is how to celebrate and reward their employees. Do you rent out a restaurant and throw one big party for everyone? Do you have a potluck and play games? How can you make the celebration inclusive for everyone, no matter their job title? With that said, here are some fun ways to celebrate the holidays at work!

Secret Santa: exchanging Secret Santa gifts always has a way of making everyone excited. It helps people feel engaged and helps employees get to know each other better in an anonymous, risk-free environment.

Team-Building Events: there’s no doubt that celebrating the holidays at work is tons of fun. But stepping out of the office and doing something fun with your team is rewarding too. Team-building events help build strategic problem-solving, group-think, time management, and of course, having tons of fun! How about an outdoor destination activity that can ignite team cooperation through a Geocaching experience? Outdoor destination events are sure to be a memorable way to celebrate the holidays.

Big Holiday Party: Holiday parties are always a shoo-in for a good time. However, you don’t have to spend your entire budget on it. Of course, if you have a bigger budget, go for it! Here are some holiday party themes to inspire your next holiday celebration at work:

  • Winter Wonderland
  • A Not So Silent Night
  • Christmas Paw-ty (bring your furry family member to work!)
  • Ugly Sweater Party
  • Holidays Around the World
  • Holiday Musical Competition Party

Holiday Bonus: If you want to spruce up the work environment and make everyone feel warm and cheery, nothing is better than handing out a Christmas bonus. Everyone loves to be rewarded, and there’s lots of value in saying how much you appreciate your workers by giving them a monetary appreciation.

Pre-Party Planning

Ok, now that you’re ready to celebrate the holidays at work, you’re going to want to have a pre-party planning checklist with must-haves, such as:

  • Seek input and start planning early
  • Consider the Party Logistics (Who, What, Where, When)
