Retirement parties honor the span of a friend or loved one’s career. It is a time to show appreciation for all of the hard work they’ve put in over the course of their life. Make the most of your retirement party by including these key elements:
- Speech(es). Traditionally, retirement parties feature speeches given by close coworkers, former bosses, friends, and family. These speeches share highlights of the honorees career, recounting their history in the workforce.
- Games. There are a ton of fun retirement-themed games you can play! Smash the Clock is a fun way to let the guest of honor said goodbye to being tied to the clock. If the honoree isn’t into games, you can go the sentimental route and give gifts during this time.
- The Right People. All of the people the guest of honor has worked with, including previous bosses and managers, should make the guest list. Of course, friends and family should be included on the invite list as well.
Retirement parties can be as extravagant or as laid back as you want them to be.
