1)      Time and Place – Only a third of parties will take place in the evening, while 43% will be lunch affairs*. If you are planning an after work event consider Monday night.  The venue will be less expensive, fewer people tend to be out due to travel schedules and it really helps kick off the week.

2)      All inclusive – 71% of employees* see a cultural improvement within their companies when an office-wide holiday party is thrown. Ensure that the theme of your event is inclusive of all religions and cultures. We are fortunate to have such a diverse work force in the United States and it should be celebrated.

3)      Healthier options – Everyone loves a holiday cookie or two, but mix it up with some healthier options like a fresh ruit arrangement from Edible Arrangements. The new Edible Grand Collection features a variety of ultra-elite arrangements to impress and feed large parties.  This provides choices for those with gluten restrictions or just those who want a fun and exciting way to eat healthy.

4)      Create a lasting impression – 67% of employees* believe that hosting a holiday party can have an improvement on office morale.  Be sure the event includes a few choice words from someone on the leadership team. Events are increasingly becoming platforms for companies to tell a story or convey a message. Our advice in regards to this trend: KEEP THE HOLIDAY STORY SIMPLE!

    I received this one when I was on chemo-therapy. Edible Arrangement fruit got me through Chemo Therapy and kept me alive. I was catered to by the West Lake Mead store in Las Vegas NV. Great people. They made me anything and the above arrangement is one of them. Merry Christmas to all, and if you want your gift to be special, order it from Edible Arrangements…I do all the time.
