Tips and Tricks for Making the Most of Your Work Holiday Party

01 Dec, 2017

Tis the season for your end-of-the-year office party and while you may not realize it, this annual tradition is a special opportunity where your employer recognizes your hard work. Parties like these build camaraderie and celebrate achievements as we reflect on last year and look forward to the next. You should get excited for this special occasion where your employer thanks you for your service and dedication. We sure are!

Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is the host to many corporate holiday parties and events. Make the most of your work’s party to celebrate the holidays and accomplishments for the year together.

1. Prep at the party.

Did you know Grand Geneva has a spa and salon on property? Arrive early and head to WELL Spa for a fresh haircut or get your makeup done by our certified makeup artists. Our new Blow Dry and Nail menu are quick and easy services to make you look great for your special event.

2. Say cheese!

Be sure to pose by the holiday decorations around the resort. You can take your photo jumping out of a present, sitting in an ornament or smiling as a gingerbread man. Many of our events will also have beautiful ice sculptures, corporate displays and social signs you won’t want to miss.

3. Get a room.

You know the party will be fun, so stay a while. It’s safer to spend the night at the resort than it is to drive home after an evening of indulgence. Book your room ahead of time and you might be able to save a few dollars if your party has a room block.

4. Bring your coat.

We know you might want to leave your coat in the car because you don’t want to lose it in the shuffle or forget it at the party, but please bring your jacket with you. There’s always a coat check and you’ll appreciate the extra warmth if you have to park further from the entrance. Speaking of: don’t freeze! Stay warm in our tents with heaters while drinking hot beverages while you wait for your trolley ride.

5. Don’t forget to say thank you.

Your party planners often spend a lot of time and effort working with our events team making your holiday party enjoyable. From invites and décor to food selection and music, your event coordinator works hard so you don’t have to. Saying thank you is not only polite, but it helps you stand out from the other employees who might forget.


Holiday parties don’t have to fall in December. Many companies are celebrating in January or February to avoid schedule conflicts as employees take vacations during the holidays. Plan your kick off meeting in the new year! Let us know you’re looking to get started and our team will help you start 2018 on the right foot.
