If you’ve been feeling more like Scrooge than jolly ol’ Saint Nick lately, now is the perfect time to shake off your “Bah, humbug!” workplace stress and give thanks to your team by spreading some holiday cheer. Although it can be tricky to find the time to celebrate, remember that even small gestures can be meaningful in showing your appreciation for your team and all the hard work they’ve done over the past year.
So spread the holiday cheer to your team this Christmas with some of these simple holiday suggestions.
Thank You Gift
‘Tis the season of gift-giving, so why not offer some Thank You gifts to your team to show that you’re grateful for all of their efforts? Whether it’s a bonus, gift certificates, or something else, giving a Thank You gift to each of your team members will show your appreciation for all of their hard work that supports you and the company.
There’s no better way to spread holiday cheer to your team this Christmas than by hosting a team celebration. You can rent out a hall, head to the bar for drinks on the company, or plan an activity that you can all do together. Taking the time to let loose, relax and have a laugh with everyone not only shows your appreciation, but it also allows you to bond, get to know each other better, and build great morale among the team.
A classic holiday activity that is sure to liven up the weeks before Christmas is the Secret Santa game. Simple to play and lots of fun, it’s a wonderful way to get everyone into the gift-giving mood. All you need to do is set a budget and get everyone to choose a name from a hat. Then it’s up to that person to drop off secret gifts to their selected person throughout the week. It’s a simple and fun way to get everyone involved and boost up the camaraderie.
Decorate The Office
If your office is looking dull and depressing, spice it up with some holiday decorations! Adding splashes of decorations like trees, tinsel, twinkly lights and anything else, will help liven up the atmosphere in the office and holiday spirit. Encourage your team to get in on the decorating by adding any of their holiday favourites.
Team Holiday Photo
Get your ugly sweaters and elf hats on and gather the team up for a team Christmas photo to commemorate the holidays. It’s a fun way that will guarantee to have just about everyone smiling while lightening up the positive vibes during the season.
With Christmas just around the corner, why not show everyone how much you appreciate their hard work by spreading holiday cheer to your team with some of these simple suggestions? Remember, having a team that feels happy and appreciated is guaranteed to feel more motivated to support you and the company in the future.
