Herth+Buss christmas parties 2016

20. Dec 2016 | People + Business

At Herth+Buss, it has become a tradition that the individual business divisions organise their own Christmas parties. This means that four different Christmas parties take place at our company. One in Sales, one in Logistics and one in Administration; Product Management and Research+Development also hold a joint party.
Within the individual divisions, departments always take turns to be responsible for organising everything and realising their vision for the Christmas party.
This allows everyone to contribute ideas.

Today, I’ve compiled the accounts of the individual divisions’ Christmas parties, as my colleagues report:

Christmas party in Sales

The Sales Christmas party 2016 took place in the familiar surroundings of the TSV Heusenstamm football clubhouse. The venue was decorated lavishly by my colleagues from Marketing. Christmas spirit was in abundance upon crossing the threshold. Providing colleagues stopped off at the mulled wine stall on the way in.

Alongside the delicious buffet – a big thank you to City Promotion for this – it was the small yet significant details that really impressed this year. Even if the festivities wound down very quickly for the past few years, our tactically staggered activities managed to keep things in full swing for much longer this time around. Those in attendance could pit their wits against each other in our version of Family Fortunes. Additionally they could put their strength to the test in a game of “Nageln”, where the contestant requiring the most hits of a hammer to drive a nail into a log buys the next round of drinks! All in all, a successful end to the year!

Christmas party in Logistics

This year, the Logistics Christmas party took place in the company canteen for the second time. The very pleasing turnout was therefore surely due to the short distance employees had to travel to the party after work. Hofmann Catering was not only responsible for the great spread they provided in the form of a buffet. They also decked the place out to create some festive cheer. Everyone sat down together and took the time to talk to one another over a steaming mulled wine or a chilled beer. The party was very well received among all those in attendance. Nobody went home hungry or thirsty and the fun was enough to keep everyone amused.

Christmas party in Administration

Every year, in Administration, we first have to make a decision about where to hold the party. Half of our colleagues prefer the convenient option of the company canteen ahead of an external location, which was the preferred option of the other half. The verdict this time was in favour of the company canteen. Our Building Management Team – the guys with the biggest appetites in Administration – suggested an Italian caterer with their appropriately lavish buffet offering.

The organisation went off without a hitch, which was in no small part down to the guys from Building Management. The dishes on offer, from the starters through to the desserts, tasted delicious. This meant that the atmosphere was also buoyant, and we were well-fed and happy as our relaxed Christmas meal ended. The only drawback was that all of the drivers among us needed to scrape our heavily iced windscreens before going home.

Christmas party in Product Management and Research+Development

Our Christmas party this year was celebrated in the Achat Plaza Hotel in Offenbach. All employees from the Product Management, Research+Development and Pricing Departments came together to kick off the festive season in extraordinarily cosy and attractive surroundings. We were greeted with a hot mug of mulled wine and a modest camp fire. That provided the perfect backdrop for a chat with our colleagues. We slowly trickled away to take our places at the beautifully decorated tables and began to eat our starters. After a delicious main course and dessert, we rounded off a great evening by sitting around and chatting a while longer.
