Holiday parties can put a burden on planners and don’t always go as planned. A catered event allows your team to relax and enjoy the evening and also helps to keep things running smoothly. Here are a few of the advantages.
To Open Bar or Not to Open Bar
This is an area where a trained catering service can offer serious advantages. An employee pouring drinks may be reluctant to say no to someone they have to work with all year long, but if a hired worker sees someone getting out of hand, cutting a person off is just part of the job. Thus, the open bar, which many see as a must for office parties, can be kept from turning into a disaster.
Hold the Event at the Office
Having your holiday party at the office is a great way to save money. Rather than renting a space or a private room at a restaurant, a catering service can bring the party right to your office building. According to a corporate survey, 78% of office holiday parties fall in the range of $11-$100 per person. Not renting a venue can help to ensure that you easily keep your event in that reasonable range.
Flexibility for Your Staff
While mid-December is by far the most popular time for an office holiday party, more corporations are pushing the event later, some even into early January. A catered event can help you to know the meal is taken care of regardless of when your staff is available to party. In fact, a January event may help kickoff moral for the new year.
