5 Tips to Arrange a Corporate Thanksgiving Party

Thanksgiving is a holiday that most people think about spending with family, friends and loved ones. However, the days before and after the holiday are ideal times to celebrate with the people you work with.

The best part about celebrating with your team at work is that you’ll be building comradery and showing that you care about employee needs. However, planning a corporate Thanksgiving party isn’t always easy.

Thanksgiving Party Ideas

Use these five tips to make sure your Thanksgiving event at work is a success this holiday season.

  1. Choose the Right Time
    Nobody wants to go to a Thanksgiving party at work on Thanksgiving. That’s why you absolutely can’t have yours that day.

    Instead, try having your Thanksgiving party the last day before you let people off for the holidays.

  2. Invite Family
    If you want to have a truly successful corporate Thanksgiving party you should let your employees bring their loved ones. Just get a guest list before you start buying food.

    Even letting employees bring a partner or spouse goes a long way toward building goodwill.

  3. Buy Plenty of Food
    Food for big groups can be hard to plan for, but the last thing you want to do is not buy enough. Plan to feed about 10% more people than you expect to attend. That way you’ll have more than enough for everybody.

  4. Hire Caterers
    You want your holiday party to be special, but you’re not going to get that if you don’t have great food. Splurge on a quality caterer and your employees will have a great time.

  5. Plan Events
    Adults don’t need a ton of party games to stay engaged, but having some activities can make the party more fun. A pie contest, a paper turkey station or a dance floor all work.
