‘There just aren’t enough days in the month of December!’
As we step into December; shops, homes and work places come alive with all things Christmassy; twinkly fairy lights strewn across window frames, tinsel weaved in and out of banisters, Christmas trees covered in baubles and streamers galore to the very inch of their lives.
During this festive period, invariably our social calendars’ get filled to the brim before we’ve even entered December. Marker pen scribbles on wall planners, lack of space in diaries & and a long list of occasions to attend & outfits to arrange.
Trying to juggle between family members, friends and work colleagues can be tricky, often asking ourselves:
'Why can’t there be more days in December?!'
Within the corporate calendar, Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year; time for your staff to let their hair down at the annual Christmas bash and to reflect on the working year that came before. For employers across the UK and the world over, it’s an opportunity to say thank you to their employees for all their hard work and a show of appreciation and acknowledgement for the hardworking year that preceded them.
Bearing this all in mind, we start to see a growing trend for celebrating post Christmas, drawing the festive season into the month of January. Rapidly becoming the new December in terms of corporate companies celebrations, many are favouring post Christmas parties.
More and more companies are opting to organise their Christmas parties post Christmas to avoid low staff numbers and to make a financial saving and quite honestly, who can blame them?!
Christmas is an extremely expensive time of year, wherever an opportunity arises to make a saving, it must be grabbed with both hands. Like weddings, just the word ‘Christmas’ sees prices sky rocketing through the sooty chimney!
By offering a policy specifically for these Christmas parties and extending it throughout the month of January, meets the demands for companies choosing to celebrate late.
Our Christmas parties policy is offered at a starting premium of £51, not only is the policy value for money, it provides invaluable cover, offering protection against the unforeseeable.
Imagine the scene; you’re celebrating with all your staff members, the DJ is playing cheesy Christmas tunes whilst you all dance the funky chicken on the dance floor.
Whether its pre Christmas or post, the last thing you want to dampen your festive spirit is the possibility of a mishap without having adequate cover in place.
When organising your Christmas shin dig this year, make sure the insurance is top priory, tick it off that list before anything else.
