The office Christmas party is the biggest social event of your work calendar, and it’s important to get right. It helps your colleagues and employees feel valued, and it’s an opportunity to thank them for the hard work they’ve put in over the year.
Depending on your budget, you may want to go low-key or really splash out and celebrate. Generally speaking, your colleagues will prefer a higher food and bar tab and a less swanky venue, than going somewhere really nice and then having to pick up some of the bill themselves. This isn’t a given though, so it’s worth checking in with your colleagues.
