Ah… the joy of the holidays. Sweet carols, delicate snow, cozy hats and gloves, holiday markets, family, and friends. Oh, and also… the Company Holiday Party. Does your office have a holiday party? Do you love it?
Seamless partnered with BizBash, the leading trade media for the event industry, to survey more than 1,500 event planners and administrative professionals about their company holiday parties. And what did we find?
Not surprisingly, employees find the parties to be incredibly fun and important! And they are found to be super important in building office morale and corporate culture.
- Nine out of 10 survey participants said they would be disappointed if their holiday festivities were cancelled.
- Seven out of 10 participants reported that a holiday party is important to office morale.
- Nine out of 10 participants said that the holiday party is important to team dynamic.
“Out of the companies surveyed, 47 percent have company-wide holiday parties, while 19 percent have divisional parties. Only 14 percent of the companies surveyed do not have holiday parties. The standard office holiday parties consist of full dinners or finger foods, and seven out of 10 companies provide either an open bar or beer and wine only.”
Clearly food is one of the most important elements of the party. So… What will your office be serving this year? Order something amazing and delicious from one of Seamless’ thousands of catering partners. Egg nog and gingerbread anyone?
