Companies with happy employees outperform their competition by 20%. Post-covid, senior executives are constantly trying to find new ways to keep their workforce engaged and satisfied. The working from home trend isn’t for everyone - and the majority of employees like to feel valued and not isolated from the rest of their teams.
The odd Zoom party was different and fun - don’t get me wrong - but from a social perspective, they only go a certain length in keeping employees hooked for so long. Here’s three reasons why every business should be looking towards a Christmas party, this year more than ever:
1. It is a chance to show appreciation
Nothing says thank-you for your staff’s hard work like a free cocktail mobile bar hire for the night. It provides an opportunity for those within the business to socialise and connect personally with higher-ranking executives they wouldn’t get a chance to on a normal business day.
Getting to know other associates (whilst standing at the mobile bar, ofcourse) gradually transfers into smoother communication around the office - as it becomes apparent your hard work is becoming recognised. After all, 69% of employees said they would work harder (and therefore, more productively) if they were better appreciated.
2. You can showcase your company culture
Hosting an event at a venue with a mobile cocktail bar or gin bar is a phenomenal opportunity to present your company’s culture. It is rare you will get a chance to get all the same people in the same room at the same time - utilising this means your approach can be clearly communicated from top to bottom.
Trying to instill an element of a fun atmosphere into your office building? Consider a cocktail mobile bar in the building on a Friday night in December. Won an annual award? Make it a special occasion with a gin bar hire for the evening. It will go a long way in rewarding your workforce and also provide a platform to inspire them with your vision for the business.
3. A chance to develop staff
Being given the responsibility of planning a major corporate Christmas event can be a step up for many young executives. Depending on the scope, it is an ideal opportunity to give employees responsibility in budget management, people management and problem solving - something that is transferable to almost any position.
And what better way to start off your corporate Christmas party planning than hiring a mobile bar service that takes all the hassle out of it for you?
