How to ensure a jolly Christmas party plus 25 Christmas party ideas!

27 October 2022

We all love Christmas and the holiday season. As HR consultants, we’re asked to advice from professional guidelines to ensure that parties and celebrations don’t turn into incidents as well as great party ideas. This time of year should be a great time for business, with customers either excitedly spending more or allowing you that time to focus a little more internally on all the things you’ve planned to get done but haven’t had time to do. Your employees are looking forward to the Christmas party and a chance to unwind and celebrate the year’s achievements. But unfortunately, it can also be an event that affects both business and careers well past the end of the party.

How do you prevent poor behaviour or inappropriate incidents, that can turn the perfect Christmas event into a perfect disaster? Here are our tips for ensuring your Christmas Party is remembered for all the right reasons:

  1. Make it an appropriate event that suits the majority of the group
  2. Alcohol management – remember responsible service of alcohol laws need to be followed and help your employees get home safely after the event.
  3. Remember, you are still at work – company policies and procedure still apply
  4. Be social media awareremember privacy and anti-bullying policies
  5. Have Fun – You work hard all year long and deserve to enjoy the holiday season.
