Christmas is just around the corner and the preparations for secret Santa, the Christmas party and other festive events are all underway. With the festive season upon us, some events can prove troublesome if some guidelines are not put in place early. Whether you have settled on a casual end of year event or a Christmas party extravaganza, here are some tips to get the best behaviour from your people and the best experience for your team.
The challenge with controlling Christmas parties is finding the balance between company rules, expectations and the party atmosphere, especially if you are part of a close knit team.
When employees are put in a decorated venue with free-flowing champagne they instinctively feel as though they are outside of work hours and may behave differently to being in the office. Prepare your people in advance to ensure this year’s party is the best one yet.
