How to organize a Christmas tree in the company ?

The approach of the year-end holidays offers a unique opportunity for companies to strengthen the bonds between their employees and their families. Organizing a Christmas tree in the company is much more than a simple celebration; it’s an opportunity to create lasting memories, nurture team spirit, and share the joy of the festive season. However, to ensure the success of such an event, methodical planning is essential. In this article, we will explore the key steps to orchestrate a memorable and harmonious Christmas tree within your company.

For you, Seminars Business Events gives you the key steps for organizing a successful Christmas tree in your Company

Upfront:

 

  1. 🎯 Define the Objective: First and foremost, determine the main objective of your event. Is it to strengthen teamwork, celebrate the year’s successes, or simply offer a moment of relaxation to your employees? What results do you expect from your employees?

  2. 💸 Establish a Budget: This is a crucial step. Determine how much you are willing to spend on the event and allocate this budget among various expenses (venue, food, animations, gifts, etc.).

  3. 📆 Choose a Date: Opt for a date that suits the majority of employees. Ensure it does not coincide with other major company events. You can use a survey to determine dates that work for the majority.

  4. 📍 Select a Venue: Depending on the size of your company and the number of guests, choose a suitable venue. It can be within the company premises or an external venue with or without accommodation, a castle, a restaurant… Find a venue that reflects the image you want to convey for your event and is easily accessible to all employees. Remember that the choice of venue will be crucial for planning the activities you want to implement.

  5. 🎈 Plan Activities: Consider the types of activities you want to include. This can range from traditional games to shows, creative or culinary workshops. Ensure that the activities are suitable for all ages and abilities. If you lack inspiration, do not hesitate to consult an incentive agency to guide you and suggest activities that will surprise all your guests, such as:
    • Bring in a magician (Calix the Magician)
    • Watch a circus and clown show (Circus Imagine)
    • Participate in a puppet show
    • Create a makeup workshop
    • Bring in the real Santa Claus

  6. And don’t forget, there should be something for both young and old!

  8. 🍭 Organize Catering: Decide if you want a buffet, a sit-down meal, or appetizers to select your caterer. Also, think about drinks and options for people with specific dietary requirements.

  9. 🎁 Decide on Gifts: The Christmas tree is often associated with gift-giving. It’s up to you to decide if you want to give gifts to the children of employees, to your employees themselves, or not. Opt for generic unisex gifts like gift vouchers so that everyone can treat themselves in their own way.

  10. 🎄 Decorate the Venue: Ensure that the decoration reflects the Christmas spirit. This includes a Christmas tree, lights, garlands, and other festive elements. You can choose a theme and involve employees in the decoration to strengthen teamwork.

  11. 📣 Communicate: Inform your employees about the event well in advance. Send formal invitations and make sure to receive RSVPs. Don’t hesitate to send reminders as the date approaches.

  12. 🎉 Plan for a Lively Atmosphere: Consider hiring a DJ, a music band, or an entertainer to maintain the festive atmosphere. Make sure the entertainment suits the desired ambiance.

  13. 🔐 Provide Security Service: This point is not mandatory; however, if the event takes place outside the company premises or if there are many guests, consider having a security service on-site.

After the Event:

 

  1. 📷 Document the Event : Hire a photographer or videographer to capture the memorable moments. Later, you can create a photo album or a video to share with the participants.

  2. 📝 Gather Feedback : After the event, solicit feedback from employees to understand what worked well and what could be improved for future events. Use surveys or informal interviews to collect opinions.

  3. 🤝 Thank the Collaborators and Their Families : After the event, send thanks to all participants and those who helped with the organization. You can send an email thanking them and sharing photos and/or videos of the event. If you have an internal network, you can also post a message visible to all employees of the company. It is also important to publicly acknowledge the efforts of those who helped with the organization.

To conclude this article: organizing a Christmas tree event in the company is much more than a simple celebration; it’s an opportunity to create moments of shared happiness, strengthen camaraderie, and promote a positive work environment.
