Human resources are a vital segment for every organization. There are various ways a company can celebrate the close of a big deal, but what matters is that you’re celebrating with your team. Most people think that to celebrate a big sale like this; you’d take your entire team out or have them socialize with each other. However, celebrating the close of a big sale isn’t always about celebrating in lavish ways. The company can also celebrate by offering their employees more benefits and increasing their morale towards work.
1. Take Your Team Out to a Celebratory Dinner
A celebratory dinner with your team is an excellent way to celebrate the success of closing a big deal, especially when the dinner is on you! Look for a fancy restaurant in your area and treat your team to a meal they’ll never forget.
2. Create an Experience
Instead of just taking your team out for dinner, create an experience around it with fun outings in the city you’re located in. There are many exciting experiences in most major cities, so make sure you choose wisely. Bowling is an excellent way to relieve stress after closing a big deal while having fun with your team. Make sure you call ahead to reserve lanes.
3. Buy a Piece of Jewelry
Jewelry is an excellent way to thank you, especially when it’s personalized with your team member’s initials. Plus, jewelry doesn’t need to be expensive. It is the thought that counts! There are different pieces of jewelry to choose from, so find one that your team member will love.
4. Give Everyone a Bottle of Champagne
Team members will love an excuse to pop open a bottle of champagne and celebrate how awesome they are at their job–especially after you’ve just closed the biggest deal in company history.
5. Donate to a Good Cause
Giving back for no reason is always a great way to motivate employees. And you don’t have to spend big bucks either; a donation of even $100 can go a long way. If you’re feeling extra generous, give your team an equal share of the money and let them decide what they want to do with it.
6. Take a Trip
Planning a company trip is a great way to bring your team together after you’ve closed the biggest deal in company history, especially if they’re from all across the country or world. If you can’t afford an extravagant vacation, simply taking everyone bowling will do just fine! And don’t let them bring their families. It’s the company trip, after all!
7. Hold a Company-Wide Potluck
Working with the same people every day can lead to boredom, so spice things up by throwing an office potluck after closing that big deal. Everyone loves free food, and it’s also an excellent way for your team members to get to know each other outside of work.
8. Hold a “Happy Hour” at a Local Bar
Nothing says celebration like a great cocktail. Plus, getting back onto the sales floor and closing another deal will be that much sweeter after you’ve enjoyed a few cocktails. Happy hour drinks are also generally pretty cheap!
After a big win like closing the deal of the century, it’s important to celebrate with your team. By celebrating in one (or all) of these ways, you’ll be able to make the biggest celebration even bigger!
