Corporate parties have not always been synonymous with “the party no one wants to miss”. But, as of recent years the office holiday party has emerged as an opportunity for companies to bolster their culture and employee engagement. Whether it’s a special venue, fun entertainment, or ugly sweater contest; office holiday parties have been elevated to a new level of fun and spectacle where more employees are marking their calendars in anticipation of this glorious seasonal gathering.
Video booths aren’t entirely new to corporate events. SpeechBooth has been used at many different types of corporate events over the years. The holiday season is special however, and ideas for office holiday parties are too. Here’s why SpeechBooth loves office holiday parties:
It’s a special kind of fun
There’s kinship, gratitude, and a sense of relief that comes with the end of the year holiday party. The workforce has pushed very hard to get through the year and hold up that celebratory glass of eggnog at the end of Q4. Attendees of the office holiday party are relaxed and enthusiastic to get into the video booth to express themselves. You can capture the highlights of employee morale in full video to remember and relive.
There are opportunity to share in the broader company topics like the year’s accomplishments & milestones as well as the many subtle things that make up a corporate culture like inside jokes and the range of different range of office personalities, Each of these can be captured and shown at their best through a professional edited highlight reel. Share that reel to celebrate internally or promote your organization outside its walls. SpeechBooth loves it when the booth becomes the vehicle for people to share laughs, love and gratitude. After a few holiday libations and some sing-alongs, the booth is the place to be.
The seasonal attire
Ugly sweaters, reindeer horns, or even the Michael Scott “Classy Christmas” robe, yes there’s a fashion statement for everyone at the office holiday party. Right after Halloween, the office holiday party has become one of the biggest moments of the year to showcase a unique ensemble. It’s great to see coworkers truly express themselves through festive attire..
A time to give thanks
Upon reflecting at the year’s past, coworkers can step outside the day-to-day office holiday party. Appreciation for the effort one another puts in to keep each other moving throughout the work day. SpeechBooth greatly enjoys being a piece of the office holiday party, and helping spread a little office cheer before the New Year begins.
