Organising an office party can be extremely stressful.
However it can be much more pleasurable if you follow these handy tips:
Partner with specialists who know what they are doing eg. an experienced corporate caterer - heh that might be us : )
Survey your team to see their preferences - ask them what they loved/hated about last years party
Choose onsite or offsite early in the planning process
Decide time of day - increasing trend is for an end of year lunch rather than an evening event
Decide on the need for external staff eg. waiters - can be helpful in making the event smoother
Ensure all your special diet team members are catered for
Finalise attendee numbers one week out from event and communicate this to all relevant providers
