Top tips for your End of Financial Year function


The end of financial year provides a great way to reward staff and colleagues for the hard work they have put in over the past 12 months and as an employee there’s nothing better than being recognised for your efforts in the work place. It’s this very reason why a lot of businesses choose to organise an end of financial year function for their staff and employees. What to do and how to best do this is the question I would like to address in this blog:


The classic night out at a restaurant or bar is probably the most popular decision business owners and managers take and there is nothing wrong with this option. Gathering everyone together for a “celebration” is great for team bonding and is a chance for the whole company or department to social outside of the workplace. Finding the right venue can be difficult but shouldn’t be a daunting task. Venues are not as busy as in the Christmas party season so you should have no trouble booking your preferred date and times. You will also find venues have a higher degree of flexibility and are more likely to be able to work to your specific requirements and budgets. Ludlow Bar & Dining Room in Southbank have some fantastic options for both sit down dinners and stand up cocktail style events; you can view their function package here.


Others ideas for end of financial year functions could be to organise something within your own offices. This keep costs to a minimum and still allows for your team to have an enjoyable time, albeit still at their desks! This is a good idea when you are trying to save your budget for the annual Christmas function later in the year!


Whatever decision you take, it usually comes down to how successful a year your company have had and what sort of budget you have for a party.
