Involve people in planning the fun

Once you’ve organized the party logistics, there’s one last element to think about: the fun part. To make sure you get the program right, why not let people have a say in the planning?

Gather views a few days before the party to find out which games people like or which songs should make it to the playlist. To make it more fun, get your team to choose a party theme or the dress code.

Use Slido Ideas to brainstorm suggestions and let people upvote their favorite ones. Or give them options and let them vote in multiple-choice polls.

Run a Christmas quiz to review the year

The Christmas party is a great opportunity to bring the whole team together to review achievements and summarize the key numbers of the year. To make it fun on the day, you can turn it into an interactive quiz.

Create a survey with a series of poll questions. In addition to key numbers, you can include fun facts such as the number of air miles traveled by the team, minutes spent on video calls or private milestones.

Let people submit their guesses in multiple-choice polls before you reveal the correct answers.

Share the stories behind the numbers

While data can help you summarize your company’s successes accurately, there’s nothing as compelling as sharing the stories of how you achieved them.

Make the data meaningful and let people share the most compelling client or team anecdotes of the year.

First, get people to discuss in groups, then ask them to submit their individual stories via Slido Ideas and upvote their favorites. Finally, invite those who submitted the top-voted stories to share more detail.

Extra Tip: Thank your Secret Santa

If you’re running a Secret Santa initiative, you can give people an opportunity to thank their Santa on Slido.

Run an open text poll at the party and give your team members a few minutes to submit their messages. Showing appreciation and expressing gratitude can create a good team bonding experience.
