More Than Christmas: 34 Holidays Worth Celebrating with Your Staff

When you think of a “company holiday party,” you probably think of the traditional December office parties celebrating Christmas. And those are great and usually expected. But there are plenty of other holidays and seasons to celebrate year-round, so you can take advantage of hosting staff parties all the time! Boost team-building efforts. Connect remote workforces. Demonstrate your company’s diversity in celebrating other holidays. And celebrate your employees’ company achievements beyond the annual Christmas party. Here are some examples of company parties other brands leverage year-round. Get inspired to curate regular team-building or corporate parties more frequently with these official and non-official party-worthy holidays.
