The festive season is here, and this is the perfect time to lift your team’s spirits. And believe us when we say there are more ways to bring the festive spirit than throwing a usual office party. These activities are not only enjoyable but also beneficial to the team to boost their morale. After all, they must know, it’s not all work and no play. So remind them that it doesn’t have to be.
Five Ways To Bring The Festive Spirit To Your Office
Festivals are a great excuse to boost the spirit of your employees and remind them that time spent in their office family doesn’t have to be cumbersome.
Following are some ideas to uplift your team spirit this festive season:
1. Thematic Decor
Changing up the look and feel of the workspace goes a long way in solidifying the feeling of freshness and giving up the festive vibe. For instance, as Diwali approaches, small initiatives like lighting up the space with some twinkling lights and decorative sticky notes on desks will help. In the same way, as Christmas comes, you can opt for other thematic decorations like stuffed Santas, tiny Christmas trees, and candy canes and put them on your employees’ desks before they arrive the next day.
2. Gift Cards
Nothing better than getting attractive offers on their favourite brands. Gift cards are the best way to make your team feel valued and appreciated. Moreover, it gives them the flexibility to shop with their favourite brands without worrying about the cost. All you’ve got to do is to identify which brands your employees prefer (if possible) , make the gift card accordingly, or simply give away gift cards to buy on their own choice. And what can lift festive spirits more than shopping?
3. Quirky Competitions
The best way to brighten up the office atmosphere is by hosting a fun contest. A simple talent show where your employees showcase their hobbies is one of the ways to boost camaraderie. Or you can even arrange a movie-themed costume party where your team can dress up as their favourite movie character. The idea is to have fun.
4. Community Fundraising
Festive charity events not only help those in need but give you and your staff a sense of team spirit and generosity. You could organise a toy drive, volunteer at a food bank, or do baking contests to aid a charity.
5. Secret Santa Gifts
Set up a budget of your choice and collect money from everyone in the team to get a gift from one person in your office. Now, put all your team members’ names in a pot, shake and let everyone pick one randomly. The name they pick is the one they have to surprise with a gift secretly.
