The Perks Of Hosting A Holiday Bash For Your Team

Are you as excited as the Melo Technology team about the impending holiday season? We’re particularly amped this year because we are about to embark on a very special anniversary. As we pointed out in our last blog, our company will be turning the big 1-5 on the 4th of January. However, just like we do every year, our team will be celebrating the company’s birthday at its annual holiday party.

On December 15th, the Melo Technology team will be gathering at our usual holiday stomping grounds, David Duncan House in North York. This luxurious fine dining establishment is our Founder and CEO, John Meloche’s absolute favourite place to both eat and celebrate special occasions. Proposing to his lovely wife Kathryn, celebrating their engagement and of course, hosting yearly Melo Technology holiday parties – they’ve all occurred within David Duncan House.

Make note of the Melo Technology holiday schedule!

Melo Technology’s standard business hours are between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time from Monday to Friday. This schedule will remain intact throughout the majority of December with the exception of the 15th when we will close at 3:00 p.m. On that day, our team will be preparing to celebrate both the holidays and our 15th anniversary at the aforementioned party at David Duncan House.

We will also be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Our first day of operations in 2024 will be on Tuesday, January 2nd. Allow us to get in early on wishing you all a wonderful holiday season filled with joy and laughter! Of course, we hope that you will be getting together with your employees and co-workers to celebrate the holidays as well. There are many benefits of doing so.

It fosters a sense of camaraderie among your team members.

When employees gather outside the office walls, they connect on personal levels. They get the chance to strengthen bonds that are crucial for a harmonious work environment. Breaking away from the usual work setting allows individuals to see each other in a different light. It encourages collaboration and teamwork once they are back at their desks. The shared memories and inside jokes from the party will serve as a powerful glue, birthing a supportive team dynamic throughout the year.

As well, holiday parties serve as fantastic platforms for leadership to interact with their teams in relaxed settings. For employees, seeing their bosses and managers in more casual environments humanizes the leadership. It makes them more approachable. This interaction fosters trust and open communication, laying the groundwork for better relationships between higher-ups and staff.

It boosts the morale of your team members.

Recognizing and acknowledging the hard work of your employees can significantly impact their motivation and dedication. A well-executed event communicates a clear message: their efforts are valued and appreciated. When team members feel valued, their morale skyrockets, leading to increased productivity and a more positive work atmosphere. Employees who feel recognized and appreciated are often more engaged, enthusiastic and committed to their tasks.
