Even for businesses with great company culture, things can become repetitive for employees. If nothing works forever, then the question is how you can keep people motivated and invested.

The answer is straightforward and fun: Reward remarkable employees with an office party.

With careful planning, you will dramatically boost morale and offer the staff an unforgettable experience. Here are some guidelines for you:

The Research Phase

Since the goal is to reward remarkable employees, you need to identify their accomplishments.

Be thorough since this is paramount. Congratulating someone for someone else’s effort can doom the party from the start.

If your company is growing thanks to a team effort, celebrate all the members. Don’t make people feel left out.

During this phase, you should also try to learn more about the staff’s tastes. If there will be catering, find out what kind of food they like. Likewise, make sure the music will be to their liking. Decide if there will be any alcoholic beverages as well.

Finding something that will work for a large group is not going to be easy, but the effort is well worth it.

The Planning Phase

After you have ironed out some of the most important details, it is time to start planning. Past corporate parties are a great source of insight here. Think back to them and consider what worked and what didn’t.

Just because a previous event was successful doesn’t mean you need to do the same thing again. Uniqueness is essential.

To reward remarkable employees, focus on them but forget about the rest of the staff. Choose a time when they can participate but try to include as many people as possible. Inform C-level employees about the party but try to keep it a secret from those who do not need to know. You will get better results if it is a surprise.

During this phase, you will decide one of the most defining aspects of the party: The entertainment. In the end, the success of your party depends on it. That is why it is an excellent idea to book professional entertainers.

The event can still be tons of fun even though it is in a corporate environment. Many clean comedians excel in such situations. One of them is Moody McCarthy, who has just as much experience with company parties as he does with performing in clubs.

One of his strengths is the ability to liven up any gathering and get people in a good mood. A surprise party with such a talented comedian leading the show will surely make your employees’ day.

If possible, talk to the entertainer you choose beforehand. With some advice and information from you, they could personalize the performance for your company. That will further reward remarkable employees as they become the stars of the party.

Awarding prizes to some of the members of staff or praising them in a speech can be charming. You need to be careful, however, not to make others feel like they are not doing a good job. Make sure that everyone is having fun at the event.

You do not have to organize parties often. Do it maybe once or twice a year and whenever the company has a significant breakthrough. If executed well, they will keep people invested in your business.

The unforgettable experiences your employees get will be a huge reward for them. You will need to find the best entertainer for the job, however. We can help you with that. Get in touch with us and let’s find the right artist for your business.
