Did you know that Halloween is the second largest commercial holiday next to Christmas? It's a great time for adults to channel their inner kid, and for kids, to be… well—kids! Halloween can be lots of fun for employees, managers and business owners, but in order to make sure it's a fun time for everyone, you need to plan, plan, plan and then communicate, communicate, communicate.
The first step to enjoying a memorable Halloween is to have your human resources department plan the festivities. If you don't have an HR department, designate someone to head up the planning committee. If you manage a small company, one or two people may be able to plan the perfect party, but larger companies can make a group planning go off without a hitch. Time on the clock ensures you don't infringe upon personal time: Arrange a luncheon plan with catered pizza or other employee favorites that may include pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte, sub sandwiches, or even a potluck lunch could be exciting.
