Christmas Special : The Christmas Office Party

Year in and year out the Christmas office party can be the one thing an employee (or employer, because they are human too) might dread for all kinds of different reasons.

But fear not anymore fellow Tie Clubbers, because last Friday we tested and approved the best recipe for a successful Christmas party, here at the Entrepreneurial Spark premises.

We are all familiar more or less with the dos and don't of situations that involve colleagues, bosses and alcohol. But beyond maintaining personal integrity, what are the steps for a successful Christmas party that will:

1. Be well organized.

2. Achieve a lot of participation.

3. Actually bring colleagues closer, within the true Christmas spirit.

Step 1 : The warm up

Usually dinners happen on a Friday. And if that's the case with your office's planning, you know that by 15:00 people will start focusing more on what they will wear on the night than on work.

This is a great chance for colleagues to gather together, have a drink (and no more) and merrily predict how the night will go. Then off to home to get ready.

This step will probably ensure that people are more relaxed and keen to attend on the night.

Step 2: The Dinner Party

Pre-drinks is a good option, more like a second warm up and gives the chance to people to be in time for the actual dinner. If the venues are within walking distance, even better. When the time for eating arrives people will actually be already more friendly and conversational.

Step 3 : The after party

This is an optional step for those brave enough to showcase their dance moves. A bar/club where people can dance is usually a good option because they will feel less pressured to exchange deep conversations on where the economy of the country is heading to, or how the kids are doing with school -which after a couple of drinks seems kind of hard to focus on anyway.
