Decorate the office!
Surely a few Christmas decorations can’t make an entire office feel happier?
You’d be surprised how much a few bits of tinsel here, and a couple of baubles there can really pick up the atmosphere and get staff feeling excited about the holidays!
Even better… you could make Christmas decorating an annual tradition, getting the team working together and bonding over a mutual love for the festive season.
Host an Award Ceremony
Awards can be a great way to engage staff and let them know that you value their hard work.
And they don’t have to be based on targets – you don’t want to leave a proportion of your loyal workforce out – consider things like…
– The most encouraging person in the office.
– The most organised.
– The best at keeping your customers happy.
…split your awards up across teams and make sure your perceived ‘favourites’ (if there are any) don’t get more praise and credit than others.
A slightly more obvious Christmas tradition, Secret Santa is an amazing way to bring your employees, across different teams, together.
Just decide on a £5-£10 limit and then pick a day for the ‘big reveal’ and you’re sorted!
Let Your Staff Leave Early
A great incentive and reward scheme that works specifically well for salespeople is allowing them to finish work early for the Christmas holiday if they hit an (achievable) target.
Whether it’s on 1st December (you’d hope not…) or 23rd, when they’ve hit the target, let them go home until January!
