1. Involve people in planning the fun

This year, let people have a say in the planning of your party.

Find out which games people would like to play, which songs should make it to the party playlist, or get your team to choose a party theme or the dress code.

Use Slido polls to collect suggestions from your team and let people upvote their favorite ones. Or, you can give your employees several options to choose from and let them vote in multiple choice polls.

Here are some examples for you:

  • Which song should definitely make it to our Christmas party playlist?
  • Which activities would you like to do at the party?
    a) Play board games
    b) Do a scavenger hunt
    c) Have a karaoke session
    d) Eat cake and talk
    e) No activities
  • What should be the dress code for the office Christmas party?
    a) Let’s suit up!
    b) Relaxed and casual
    c) Christmas jumpers
    d) Black and white elegance
    e) Glitter everywhere

2. 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 more fun, turn it into an interactive quiz.

Create a quiz in Slido with a series of questions asking about key company numbers and milestones such as:

  • What do you think our final sales numbers are for the year?
  • What was our average NPS this year?

You can also include fun facts and company stats such as:

  • How many minutes did we spend on video calls?
  • How many babies did we welcome last year?

3. Share company highlights of the year

Christmas is the perfect time to reminisce and think about the good stuff that happened during the year.

Let people share their professional highlights of the year, the most compelling client, or their most precious personal moments.

First, pose a question and get people to discuss it in groups. Next, ask them to submit their highlights via an open text poll or Slido Ideas and upvote their favorites. You can also invite those who submitted the top-voted moments to share the stories behind them.

Here’s some inspiration for you:

  • What was your biggest highlight of the season?
  • What was the most compelling client story that you heard this year?
  • What was the funniest moment you had with your team this year?

Extra Tip: Thank your Secret Santa

If you’re running a Secret Santa, 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.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Your Slido Team.
