Now that Thanksgiving is almost upon us, it’s time to start planning your corporate holiday party. At Lanham Skate Center we’re the party experts. Check out our tips for hosting a great corporate holiday party:
- Don’t delay! The holidays are a busy time for everyone, including venues. Either start planning early or prepare to be flexible in your dates. Consider a weeknight event, or even holding a post-holiday party in January if things are busy for your industry right now.
- Don’t hog everyone’s time. You may be tempted to make a speech about the year, but consider this: your employees listen to you all the time. Either skip the speeches or keep them short (under a couple of minutes) and focused on the positive, like offering thanks and looking forward to the new year.
- Pick something fun to do! A skating party at Lanham help your employees have a blast without having to resort to office gossip to stave off boredom. Consider a simple, inexpensive gift exchange, or a toy, clothing, or canned food drive.
- Be considerate of your employees. While it can be tempting to try to cut costs for your business, don’t put all the work or cost on your employees. They’re the reason you’re having this party, after all! When you host your party at Lanham Skate Center we do all the work so you don’t have to.
