If you are a business owner or CEO, you know employee engagement is worse now than it has been in the last decade due to social and technological trends.
Corporate Holiday Parties are a perfect opportunity to get your employees firing on all cylinders. This is an important event that affects company productivity and should not be overlooked.
Will your corporate holiday party elevate your company or set you back?
What if your catering company was designed to boost morale, improve productivity, and reduce employee turnover, (but in smarter ways than the obvious cheesy & phony attempts by companies like Walmart).

The wonderful food and drink is the easy part. Any caterer in Hollywood can do that.
The secrete catering sauce is in strategy and awareness.
Strategic team-building and morale building takes a business minded catering partner that knows how to create that as a mood instead of a sales-pitch.
Here are some simple tips to making sure your corporate holiday catering is optimized to increase your bottom line:
Tip #1: (easy): Your food and your staff: Cater food that is good for mingling, like small bites that are filling but not too messy. Clean crisp catering to start things off of is great, but the way to really pour gasoline on the equation is with a catering staff that is trained to facilitate team-building for you.
Tip #2: (easy): Keep things Fresh with Motion. Instead of anchoring people to a dinner table for half the night, opt for smaller stations that keep people moving and engaged, yet comfortable to settle in to table if they wish knowing others will by mingling by them.
This is a great way to get your employees to meet each other and have families becomes friends as well. Having this level of relationships among your employees is extremely valuable.
This way, employees pump each other up when they need it. It's the pleasant side affect of smart catering - your workers improve the qualities of their own lives by supporting each other due to closer relationships.
Now image the impact this has on their productivity and communication at work - priceless...and the catering can play a big part in this.
Tip #3: (advanced): Break State: This is the secrete weapon and holy grail of catering combined with strategic holiday party management with some psychology sprinkled on top - it's a process for your catering staff to know how to put out all fires before they start.
Break State - 'breaking state' refers to interrupting a negative psychological/emotional state.
You can break state with catering that interrupts the common party patterns if you see things not going as planned (think Holiday party disasters).
When the catering staff notices an issue, they can immediately break state to keep a positive expansive and cooperative mood for the entire party. We all know people love to get drunk at holiday parties. This is one way your catering staff can put out all fires before they start.
Example, come out with a flaming dishing trailing a big puff of smoke. This breaks people state and done at the right time can be critical to the impression that's left of the event - and that's everything.
How people later recall an event is just as important as their perspective during the event. Skilled catering staff knows how to future pace your employees to happy thoughts when they think back to the party and associate it with their company.
It's a great feeling as an employee and a boss, when the employee is so happy and excited she begins to thrive even more for herself, her company and he family.
This is a powerful concept in catering and party planning that can help your company get the most out of your next holiday party.
