How to plan a leaving party
If someone in your company is leaving, or a friend is leaving your town or country, it is a nice gesture to plan a leaving party for them. With a leaving party you get to express to this person how much you have enjoyed their company and the contribution they have made to your work or life. This proves to this person that they have made an impact, and will send them off on their way feeling more valued. It is also a nice way to give everyone a chance to say goodbye, all at once so that no one feels as if they have missed out.
- Invite people early. Even if you are simply having the party in the office at the end of the day, make sure that you let people know well in advance and invite them so that everyone who wants to be there can be. This ensures that no one misses out on their chance to say goodbye.
- Let the person leaving know. A surprise leaving party is all well and good, but if the person you are surprising has no idea and is leaving, they might decide to take holiday at the last minute and leave before the party. It is simpler to just let them know.
- Arrange a gift. If you don’t know what to get as a gift, then do a little collection and buy vouchers or something that the person can enjoy when they move onto their next position. A leaving gift is as much a part of the party as everything else and shows that you care.
- Get the leaving person involved. The best way to get a person to have a great leaving party is just to let them be involved in the planning process. This way they can let everyone know what they want, and invite the people they want.
