Company parties are a great way to bring people together, encourage teamwork and show your appreciation.

There are so many benefits to hosting a great party for your employees, but throwing an effective event is easier said than done. At My Chef Lynn, we offer professional and delectable catering services in Issaquah, and with our team on your side, you have much less to worry about. The food is one of the most memorable parts of any party, but it isn’t the only thing you need to think about. The following is a list of a couple of helpful event planning tips for your company’s next party:

#1. Invite significant others to come along.

One of the main benefits of company-wide parties is that they  give people who wouldn’t normal work or talk to one another a chance to become friends. When you make it a point to invite your employees’ spouses and significant others, you can get to know them on a whole new level. People are generally much more comfortable and at home when they have their significant other with them.

#2. Keep speeches short and sweet. 

While company events are a great time to show your employees how much you respect and appreciate them, they aren’t the time to make long, boring speeches. It’s okay to give a speech or make an announcement, but parties are primarily about bonding and having fun, so you should keep it short and sweet.

These are just a couple of the many things you can do to make your next company event a success. Would you like to learn more? If so, please stay tuned for our next blog!
