A corporate party or a party thrown to the employees is something that needs to be done in a much professional way. this would mean that there will be a high budget that needs to be allocated to throw the party. Below are few tips that might help a person organize a company party methodically and for an affordable budget.
Throw the party at the day time.
If you throw a company or corporate party at night, then it would mean that you might have to invite the spouses of the employees or at time the whole family including the children of the employees. therefore, select the day time during work to throw the party. You do not have to worry about additional visitors to the party as during office hours you will only have the employees around.
An additional benefit of throwing the party in the work place is that, you do not have to spend extra on another venue. Or you do not have to book expensive places to throw a party. You can save that expense for another aspect of the party, for example the food.
Decide for the food and beverages early.
Every party must have good food and beverages that suit the occasion. if it is a day time party, then there is highly unlikely to have any alcohol. Therefore, discuss the food that you need to throw a party and contact a trusted corporate catering company. Never order the food from the first catering service you call. Make several calls and look for a place which provides good food for an affordable price.
However, you can minimise the cost for food if you have your own office catering service. If you are a large firm and have a private catering service which provides food daily to the staff, then you can ask them to make few changes in the menu on that day. Also, you can ask employees to volunteer and bring special dishes from home on the day of the event.
Get the party going.
Corporate events due to their professionalism may get boring at times. Therefore, think out of the box and make sure that you throw a happening party. Organize many games for entertainment. You can also play good party music in the background and place a dancing floor in the middle of the party space. To add spice to the party, you can give a dress code or selected costumes for different teams. Finally, thank all your employees for the service that they are doing for the company and give them small tokens of thank you such as a gift voucher or a bonus.
