Companies who are on top of their game are planning their work Christmas dos already! We’ve been asking local businesses what they actually want from their Christmas party.
And it’s not all about throwing money behind a bar to keep employees happy. Check out this post by CEO and industry expert Mary Baird-Wilcock, CSEP on how your Christmas party is actually a big business opportunity…
As you might expect from our survey, good drinks did feature high up on the list of what people want from their work Christmas do. But there were some unexpected suggestions like games, an actual Santa, acrobats, and boozy cakes.

- Forced fun and cheesy ice breakers
- “Anything that makes me resent my boss for making me spend my unpaid time with my colleagues until I can make my excuses and leave”
