It’s a strange world we all live in now. The Christmas office party used to be a given. An event which colleagues looked forward to, dressed up for, probably drank too much at, and maybe even danced badly at. Nevertheless it was part of the rhythm of the corporate world. Or not necessarily even the corporate world, the mainstay of celebrating a year’s work , which almost certainly felt justified.

British workers aren’t statistically the world’s most hard working - they have more holidays not necessarily than their European counterparts, but certainly take more days off than their US opposite numbers. There it’s common to have two weeks leave plus statutory holidays. Here in the UK it’s often 4 - 5 weeks off and then the rest.

We almost feel it’s our right to celebrate at the end of all this hard work. And what to do now with Covid restrictions to be able to enjoy the traditional office Christmas Party? So we’ve all seen the TV programmes with oh so many squares of individuals competing for space on a Zoom call. It would be a good shout to limit the numbers for an online office party. To almost give an exclusive atmosphere to colleagues without it being there.

Having said that there are ways, apart from dividing up your organisation into smaller online groups, to promote exclusivity and ultimately make employees feel special. Order some booze so it arrives at their doorsteps. All tastes need to be taken into account be it non alcoholic wine, a penchant for vegan snacks or oatmeal milk. If people feel looked after, they will relax and begin to enjoy themselves.

Online party games are an option once the toasting between colleagues for all the year’s various achievements in the business have taken place. And dressing up for the occasion is more or less a must. There could be the party gear employees choose to wear themselves and then a change mid event with them unwrapping parcels sent to them in design your own cotton tote bags.

It’s here the personalised company ethos really comes into play. Imagine your company has an office mantra - “make hay while the sun shines” - for example . Well that could be emblazoned on tshirts with each person’s name underneath. Personalised tshirts are a great unifying factor as are design your own caps & bulk printing means bigger discounts.

Otherwise if bosses are feeling more generous why not give workers party gear which can be used afterwards? They may be wear what they like to the online gathering and then get a voucher to order their own personalised hoodie or the oh so chic design your own varsity jacket. That way the company is actually allowing them to be themselves !! Getting together with other fellow colleagues in person isn’t to be underestimated. Actually it’s definitely a good idea to meet face to face if at all possible. And you never know by Christmas this might just be allowed. Even if a group gathering is limited to 30 as funerals currently are, it’s better than seeing each other to celebrate through a screen.
