5 things to avoid when planning a Christmas party for your staff

We may be in the thick of summer at the moment, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your office Christmas party. As an employer it’s a chance to reward your staff for all of their hard work throughout the previous year by giving them a chance to let down their hair and enjoy the free bar. As one of the leading DJ services in London, Platinum DJs have entertained at a great many Christmas parties, so we’ve put together a handy guide to what NOT to do!

  • Don’t leave it to the last minute: The festive period is an incredibly busy time for most of us. We’re juggling an increased workload in the office, with buying gifts, and the sudden boom in our social calendars. If you leave it to the last minute then you risk most of your employees not being able to make it! Don’t make your staff feel like an afterthought, start planning a special night now!
  • Don’t hold it in the office: Dress it up with as many Christmas trees, fairly lights, and tinsel as you like, but it will still be the office that your employees spend 40 hours of their week in! Hire a venue, order the caterers in to prepare a lovely meal or buffet, and hire a DJ and disco service for the evening. Oh, and put a tab behind the bar!
  • Don’t forget transportation: If the Christmas party is going to take place straight from work at a venue away from the office then it’s common courtesy to provide adequate means for your employees to get there. A couple of mini-buses, and car pooling from the people who aren’t going to be drinking should do the trick.
  • Don’ do it on a school night: If your place of work operates during normal business hours, i.e. Monday to Friday, then it’s best not to have your party on a Wednesday evening if you want any productivity from your staff the next day! A Friday night is the best option as people can go straight from the office without having to worry about getting up for work the next day.
  • Don’t forget to thank your staff: While you’ve got everyone from the company in one place it’s a perfect opportunity to say a few words to show your appreciation for all of their hard work over the last year. It might be nice to wish them all a good Christmas too; making your staff feel valued will motivate them to be more productive in their jobs.

DJ Jason Dupuy Testimonial   Hi Lynn and Jason, This is a long time after 7th June, but I wanted to say thanks to Jason for the amazing job he did at our wedding. From the music to the lights and the exceptional job he did with the outdoors part of the day, everything was brilliant, beyond expectations and beyond anything I have seen at a wedding before. Before and during the wedding, both you and he were super efficient and very easy to work with, so thanks so much for that. All the best wishes, Dom
