Are you in need of new office party ideas, to replace the usual stuff your work offers?
Hungry for fun social events to do with your teammates?
Thanks to the way parties are usually run, many people tend to dread the office party.
Even though we spend a lot of time at work - that it feels like a second home, sometimes! - the thought of socializing beyond work gossip can send us the shivers.
With these office party ideas, you’ll be able to create an event everyone will want to be at.
Most times, we attend only as work people. That means talking about work stuff - which can be boring.
There’s also an assumption we know each other, just because they sit in the same office.
Finally, the sense of obligation - of needing to throw a party to bond people - reeks in traditional parties.
If you've not got people toasting each other at your do - at least once - that's a warning sign of how rigid your party might be.
Fortunately, with a slight adjustment, you can create events that are memorable and fun for everyone involved.
By doing this, you give your team the chance to unwind - to forget they’re at work (for a while), to bond as people.
And with so much choice when it comes to work events, there's no time to waste.
Use any of the office party ideas below for your next do.
You got an upcoming party, but no time to plan it, theme it, do anything wild? Have no fear - party games to the rescue.
Got an office Christmas party coming up?
Most people dread the annual party. Watching your managers do embarrassing things is cringeworthy stuff.
Know someone’s about to be promoted? Or is about to retire?
And is it a secret that even they don’t know about it?
Then consider throwing them a surprise party. You can host this at work or a venue near to work.
Snowed in by deadlines? Long hours in the office?
Then why not treat everyone to a movie marathon. All you need is a projector, a screen and a laptop.
Someone leaving the company?
Leaving parties can be bittersweet affairs. You’re excited to hear they’re moving on, doing something new.
But at the same time, you’re sad to see them go.
Want to have a few FUN office drinks?
I hear ya. Shaking everyone out of the work mode is so important here.
Time to stop talking shop, and start talking about our lives.
Got a Dress Down Friday?
Unless you work some place where casual clothing is allowed, most companies offer a Dress Down Friday or Where What You Like Day.
Throwing a team lunch? Welcoming a new teammate?
Take plenty of photos at these events.
Those photos will also remind everyone of the “family” you all are - and the good times you can have together.
