Last night ActivEngage had it’s annual Holiday Party at Ceviche. We had an open bar, hand passed appetizers, and a great DJ. By 7PM employees created a break dancing circle and one later told me that he ripped his pants doing a whirlwind move!
Why am I telling you this? Because Holiday Parties are good for company morale. At this party there were no divisions because of positions or locations in the office, everyone was mingling like one big family. Some argue that a bonus would be better than a party, to those people I say BAH HUMBUG. Those bonuses remind me of the often quoted business-owner motto, “I don’t need to say thank you, that’s what I pay you for.” Throwing money in someone’s direction might be appreciated, but it feels a lot less personal and I’m not alone in my thinking, “A party at the end of the year is a good way for an employer to show its appreciation to employees,” Bob Kelleher, CEO of The Employee Engagement Group
I won’t stop there either, here are some reasons why having a Holiday Party for your employees is great for your company.
