It may be tempting to view the annual holiday party as cliché or even as an unnecessary expense, but with the right planning your holiday party can be a strong business investment. Throwing a fun and festive holiday party has tangible benefits for your company. Here’s how hosting your holiday party at The Glenerin Inn & Spa can strengthen your corporate team and inspire future success.
- Show Your Employees You Care
Your holiday party is an excellent opportunity to thank your employees for a year of hard work. By doing something special for your team and their family, you build a sense of community. When your employees feel appreciated like a valued member of your company, they will be more inclined to share their time and effort. They will also be less inclined to fight for every penny in contracts and collective agreements.
- An Excellent Team Building Opportunity
Not only will building a sense of community encourage your employees to work harder, but it’ll have them working together and for each other. A holiday party creates a shared experience, where people can discover common interests and get to know each other outside of work. Translate this new rapport into an office setting and your workforce will communicate more effectively and work harder for each other.
- Set the Tone for Next Year
Since your holiday party will happen near the end of the calendar year, it represents a great opportunity to launch your company into the next year. Use your holiday party as a platform to recognize your yearly achievements and share your company’s future goals. A short speech can improve morale and productivity of your employees. By recognizing good work, you subtly illustrate the type of work you want your employees to emulate and mirror.
- Get to Know Your Employees Better
With everyone loosening up, you have a chance to see how your team behaves outside of a work setting. You can find common ground with people from all levels of your organization. Becoming better acquainted with your team opens up communication with them and creates a personal connection. In this way, a holiday party can prove to be a good opportunity to discover new candidates for promotion.
- Have Fun
Besides the practical benefits of strengthening your company’s team and rewarding hard work, there is a much simpler factor to consider: Fun. After all, that is the primary goal of a holiday party. The Glenerin Inn & Spa provides a perfect winter venue. The rustic, beautiful building provides an upscale setting for work functions.
