The Season is the Reason!

The holidays are a time to show the ones you depend on that you care about them. Don’t forget your employees! The holidays are the perfect excuse to throw a holiday party for your employees to show them just how much you appreciate all they do for you. You offer delicious food to your customers—why not offer some of that great food to your employees? When throwing a holiday party for your employees, here are some things to keep in mind:


You don’t have to have alcohol at your party if you’re worried it will get out of control or if you have underage employees. Alcohol is one of the easiest ways to rack up the bill for a party without even realizing it! If you choose not to include alcohol at your party, use those funds to invest in a band, prizes, or something else your employees will enjoy. You can also experiment with some holiday mocktails.


Remember, this party is for your staff, so you don’t want them contributing even if they’re used to making the food. You can have it catered, or if you’re thinking about your budget, you can make the party into a potluck where everyone brings a dish. However, if you have a small team, you should consider having your head staff cook for the rest of the employees.


Finding a time that works for all your employees when you work in the restaurant industry can be tough. Try to schedule the party on a day that the restaurant is closed, otherwise you’ll run into the problem of rewarding your staff with a party, only for some to have to work. Pick a day for the party earlier in December because as it gets closer to the end of the month, people’s schedules get busier.

You should always be letting your employees know that you appreciate them, but what better way than to use the holidays as an excuse? We all love a good holiday party, so use the holiday season as a reason to show your appreciation!
