For one thing, it boosts staff morale and also lets the faculty know that their boss isn’t just some uptight corporate CEO that barks orders and breathes behind people’s necks. A party in the workplace is also a good thing because normally the office is where the staff spends 40 hours out of their week doing some sort of task as per their job description.

After a while, people begin to zone out, which can lead to decreased focus and may hamper work productivity. Every now and then, it is nice to just turn the place into a party venue so coworkers, supervisors and managers can all gather for a non-work-related evening.
