5 Ways to Make Year End Award Ceremonies Stress-Free

November 7, 2011

Award season is upon us! November, December, and January are popular months for year end award ceremonies and events. At Baudville, we’re already excited for our Year End Party in mid-December. The entire team gets together at a Grand Rapids venue for dinner, awards, and an activity. It’s the event of the year for our company!

How does your organization celebrate the end of the year? Do you have lunch catered in your office or take the entire team out? Do you have a formal award ceremony or casually share the successes and achievements from the year?

However you celebrate the end of 2011, you want to be prepared! We have lots of content and several resources to help you get ready for your big event:
