Office parties need to be professional. You need to remember that they have a reason behind them, that they are a way for you to show your staff and clients that you are highly professional, highly competent and a good company to work for/ with. Your party needs to say ‘look at my company, look what I can do, look what I am about’.
Office parties have a bad reputation for descending into chaos, so make sure this doesn’t happen. People need to have fun, but in an organised way that you can keep control of. Give them lots of ways to have fun and interact – think about having games and quizzes for people to take part in.
You should also concentrate on your theming and get it right. Make sure your venue looks beautiful and you have branded it with your company logo and/ or any important messages your organisation has.
