“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” This memorable quote was stated by Matthew Broderick in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in 1986. While it’s true that you could miss special moments if you don’t stay in the present, we actually want to bring your attention to the fast pace at which life moves.
It’s the end of September and we recognize how forward it is to be talking about the winter holiday season. But how else will you save time, money, and stress? Let’s share why starting to plan your company holiday party now is a good idea, and how Thriver can help.
3 Reasons Why You Should Start Planning Your Holiday Party Now
1. Ample Vendor Options on Thriver’s Marketplace
One of the significant advantages of planning your company holiday party early is the wide array of vendor options available to you on Thriver’s marketplace. As the holiday season approaches, popular vendors get booked quickly. By booking vendors who offer services such as catering and entertainment early, you not only guarantee their availability but also have the chance to negotiate favorable terms and rates. This strategic advantage allows you to stay present during the holiday season, knowing that the essential details have already been taken care of.
2. Enhanced Employee Anticipation
The holiday season sparks excitement and anticipation. It also necessitates a lot of personal planning to ensure event attendance. Using Thriver’s RSVP functions, your team can plan accordingly and come to the company holiday party without any last-minute conflicts.
3. Mitigate the Last-Minute Rush
The holiday season is often accompanied by a flurry of activities and responsibilities. By planning your company holiday party early, you alleviate the stress that can arise from last-minute preparations. Instead of scrambling to secure a caterer, decide on a team activity, or finalize details, you can approach the event with a composed demeanor and focus on enjoying the festivities and connecting with your colleagues.
