Celebrating a work colleague’s or employee’s birthday is a great excuse to take a short break, have some fun and enjoy a slice (or two) of cake. Birthday’s bring people together and it should be no exception at work! This isn’t just another stiff corporate event. Keep it light and casual, so it’s something the whole office can look forward to. Here are some office birthday ideas and tips to help you celebrate at work.
Kick it up a notch and make your birthday person feel extra special by decorating their desk or cubicle. Go all out with colourful post-its, streamers and balloons. If you want to go the extra mile for this special occasion, why not ask your graphic designer to design a personalised birthday card. This creates fun for the whole office and makes the birthday employee feel extra special and appreciated. It's such a fun way to wish them a happy birthday and helps bring people together.
While acknowledging each employee's birthday is important, having a birthday cake every week (even if tempting) can get old, fast. Consider a monthly celebration for all employees whose birthdays fall in that month. A monthly birthday celebration party can save time and money, while still making staff feel appreciated and valued.
At Eatfirst, we celebrate with an office cake each month, that is picked out by a birthday staff member. It makes the experience feel more special and our whole team looks forward to the monthly celebrations as a chance to try new flavours and corporate caterers!
We find that a monthly celebration is a great way to bond with each other and gives everyone the chance to take a short break and unwind. It’s also awesome for building morale and cements our company culture.
A cake delivery isn’t the only way to celebrate a birthday at work. Cupcakes, cake pops, ice cream bars, chocolates, donuts and other sweet treats are all great options.
Do you know what else brings people together? Food! Sharing food with other employees can help to remove barriers, build stronger relationships with other team members and encourages conversation.
If you’re not in the mood for cake (we’re sure it happens), why not try out a new cuisine theme each month for your team lunch instead? Think bbq catering, finger food, fresh Indian catering or a vegan catering! The list is endless. You don’t even have to be limited by a lunchtime menu. Try out our breakfast platters, afternoon tea birthday celebration to keep things interesting.
For big birthday’s or significant milestones, consider hosting an evening drinks in the office. Not only is this a fun way for the team to bond, it’s an extra special way to acknowledge those important birthdays in the office. Office alcohol delivery and delicious finger food catering is an easy way to organise a successful and fun office happy hour.
There’s nothing worse than ordering a birthday cake for a staff member, only to find out that the recipient can’t eat it. Nearly half of all our catering orders include a special dietary need, so it’s best to check for any dietary requirements before getting your cake delivery. Whether it’s nuts, gluten, dairy, vegan or anything in-between, we have plenty of delicious options when catering for special dietary requirements.
The birth of an employee’s child, the launch of a new product, a great sales month, work anniversaries or promotions are all great reasons to have an office celebration. But don’t go too overboard – do you have the time, budget and energy to celebrate every staff member’s special life event?
According to Globoforce, 95% of survey respondents felt more positive if they were noticed and recognized during their work anniversary. It doesn’t need to be too complex, but having an office cake and adding a personal touch to the celebration can go a long way to make employees feel appreciated and valued. Something as simple as a card signed by everyone in the office, or even an email from the CEO acknowledging that person’s contribution can make it feel that much more special.
While a cake is the traditional sweet treat of choice for birthday celebrations, there are also a range of delectable cupcake options that provides a beautifully simple and scrumptious twist on the classic. You also avoid the cutting and plating, so it's a breeze to serve and tidy up afterwards! Remember, if you're ordering cupcakes for your next office celebration, include a little buffer in the numbers, just in case you missed someone!
