Benefits of year-end parties

The value that a year-end party can bring to the team, similar to other incentives and rewards, has a direct correlation to the bottom line. Whilst some may think of a year end party to let their hair down or better still, to watch others let their hair down and behave drunk and disorderly, there’s actually so much more to a year-end party, which has long lasting effects on the individuals and on the company as a whole.

Year-end parties, often held in conjunction with annual recognition awards, like “Star Awards” as an example, is an opportune time for individuals, teams and divisions to get together to celebrate their achievements of the past twelve months. It is also an opportunity to strengthen and build employee morale by communicating new goals for the following year and to inspire and motivate the team toward these goals by sharing and communicating the strategy for the year ahead.

A carefully planned and executed year-end party can make employees:

  • Feel valued
  • Feel loyal
  • Motivated

When employees feel valued, loyal and motivated, the company will experience:

  • Improved operations
  • Improved productivity
  • Improved efficiencies

When all of the above happens, there is a synergy and team cohesiveness, some of the key ingredients toward organisational effectiveness which affects the bottom line, and the evidence can be seen in the sales and profit growth.
