It’s that time of the year! Whether working in a large multinational enterprise or in a small family business, the holiday season is known for its festive team lunches, holiday music, family style parties with employees’ kids or surprise dinners with Secret Santa gifts. Orchestrating either a small Thanksgiving lunch or a large Christmas ball is a huge task requiring detailed planning and organization.

A key element to ensure success is effective internal communication. Keeping your team in the know before, during, and after your event is critical and should be well thought out:

  • Prior to the event, you will most likely need to share Date/Time, Value Proposition, Speaker Names, Agenda or Activity, Preparatory Work, Food & Drinks, Dress Attire and Transportation. You may also want to share a registration form with a field to share dietary restrictions or special need assistance required.
  • During the event you may need to post last minute event updates or alerts; or you may like to have people using social networks to share what’s happening live.
  • After the event, most likely you will like to thank everyone attending and share a sum-up or a memory for the future. You can also collect feedback and suggestions through a poll or create a shared photo-album.

Create an events workspace, step-by-step

Choosing the right tool to communicate your internal events, and communicating them coherently though time, is as important as choosing which information to communicate. If your company already has a SharePoint intranet solution in place, then extending it with an “Events Central” can leverage existing goodwill and user engagement and improve reach.
