Work Christmas party outside your workplace

Author: Mgr. Petr Sucháček

Although it may not seem like it, it is the high time to start planning your work Christmas party if you want to take advantage of all the possibilities this event has to offer. Sure, you may be able to boost team spirit by hosting the party at your usual workplace, but you would probably be depriving yourself of other valuable benefits.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of having a party outside your workplace:

Whichever option you choose, there are two safety warnings. The first is the nature of the content or ‘entertainment’: it is always important to remember that a work Christmas party is still a professional event. Any performances, games or content should be suitable for a diverse group of people. This means avoiding controversial or politically sensitive topics or jokes that might offend someone.

And with that comes a final reminder: the work Christmas party is there to celebrate a year of work together, to look back, to have fun, to appreciate each other – just to enjoy time together. Avoid anything in the programme or the venue that points anywhere else. There will certainly be plenty of time for that at another time and it is not worth spoiling a good time with colleagues before the holidays.
