4 Fun Alternatives To The Traditional Office Holiday Party

There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season in the office than with an end of the year company party. A company party helps fuel company culture and improves bonding between employees. This is one of the reasons why group business trips have increased up to 2.5% in 2016.

However, for some companies, an office holiday party can feel as stale as leftover gingerbread cookies. But how can you make sure your employees have a good time without making things too exciting? The following office holiday ideas are sure to help your business bring in the new year without breaking the bank.

  1. Change the venue. Not all workers enjoy celebrating the holidays inside their office. This is because the office space and location can make your employees feel like they’re still at work. Try changing the venue for your office holiday party to an outdoor event space Kansas City offers that’s chic, charming, and rustic like The Bowery. This event space has both an indoor and outdoor space so you can bring in the holiday season no matter the weather.
  2. Have a company picnic. Company picnics are a great way to bring everyone together at any time of the year. Nothing bridges gaps between departments quite like food, after all. If it’s too cold to head outside, go for a casual potluck instead with employees dressed in fun holiday sweaters.
  3. Host a cookie-making party. It’s always great to share food with one another. But it’s even better to make food with one another. Think of the last time you made cookies with someone else for the fun of it. Odds are, you had a blast. Bring that fun to the whole office for a stress-free, fun-filled, hilarious office holiday party.
  4. Host a decoration contest. A little friendly competition is a great way to build productivity in the office. Add a little holiday cheer and your office space will be decked out for the season. A cubicle-decoration contest will brighten up the office space and spread cheer to all departments and clients.

It can be a challenge to ensure each and every employee at your office holiday party is having a good time. Fortunately, when you host party rentals at The Bowery in Kansas City, entertaining your workers becomes that much easier. Contact The Bowery today to schedule a reservation.
