Having a party during the holiday season is a tradition among the workplaces in the Philippines. Whether you are in a call center service or in any other industries, it is most certain that your office is preparing for a Christmas party. Unfortunately, some employees dread going to one due to numerous reasons. But this doesn’t have to be the case this year.

You and your team could totally plan your own party that will definitely make each and every one of you jolly. No one has to play the Grinch this year. All you have to do is follow these tips:

Plan Your Party Early

Plan Your Party Early

Planning your Christmas party early is vital to having a jolly and successful one. The first thing you got to do is to schedule it on a day when everyone in your team is free. This is important because you wouldn’t want to leave someone out of your celebrations.

You should definitely do this, weeks before you plan to have the party to smooth the details out. Keep in mind that one of your team members (or even you) could be on their vacation leave. In which case, the rest of your team should be respectful of that.


Have a Themed Christmas Party

Having a theme can bring all of you in your team on board for the party. It could easily get you excited to be part of the planning and, eventually, the celebration. It could be as lavish as having a costume party. One example of this is having one of you dressed as Santa Clause with the rest of you dressed as his elves.

But it does not have to be this way if you don’t want it to. It could just be really simple like having all of you wear Santa hats or reindeer ears. And if the idea of wearing a costume is still not appealing to you, then you could just have everyone wear the same color of shirt – like red or green for Christmas.

This decision is completely up to you!

Designate a Main Activity

Designate a Main Activity

Aside from having a theme, your team could also plan on having just one main activity for you to do for your Christmas party. It could be anything from eating at a buffet, playing bowling, going to a theme park, participating in a locked room challenge, watching a movie, to having a karaoke contest. You could also go bar hopping, especially if you work in a call center in Makati.

Your Christmas gathering does not have to be fully packed in order to be jolly. You could just concentrate on one activity, which all of you will enjoy best.


Play Some Games

If your group enjoys playing games, then you should definitely prepare some Christmas-themed ones for your party. There are literally many games for you to choose from. Some of which are the following:

  • Guessing the Christmas Character
  • Pictionary featuring Christmas Carols
  • Christmas Charades
  • Christmas Movie Trivia
  • Christmas Memory Game
  • Name that Christmas Carol

This list contains only a few examples of Christmas games your team could be playing this holiday season. Of course, it won’t be complete and competitive if you don’t offer prizes to the winners. All of you could chip in to buy them before your party starts.

Have Some Clean Fun

Have Some Clean Fun

Sure, drinking booze at a Christmas party has always been part of the tradition. But it doesn’t have to be the case, if you and the rest of your team believe it will just ruin your fun.You could totally go without it; or if you still want to have a few drinks, then go ahead just don’t make it the main attraction in your party.

Drinking less booze in your party could also benefit you, particularly when you still have to go to work in the following morning. Can you imagine having to answer calls while you are hungover? For sure, this is a recipe for disaster!


Donate or Give Back

This season, it’s important to remember that “giving is better than receiving.” Your team could select a certain charity or organization you want to help out. You could have a drive and donate all the proceeds on your party. It doesn’t even have to be in monetary value; it could be canned goods or old clothes you no longer use.

Doing this good deed will for sure make everyone in your team feel good and generous – just in time for the Christmas season.


Key Takeaway

Christmas parties do not have to follow traditions, especially if you believe that they no longer make people in your Philippine call center service team jolly. Go ahead and plan your perfect party that is ideal for each and every member of your team. Do some brainstorming if you must and don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
