How To Boost Your Employees' Spirits for The Holidays

Add some festive decorations to the office.
Nothing can bring in the holiday cheer to the workplace like Christmas and New Year's decorations. For example:

  • Add a Christmas tree to the office and decorate it with lights, garland, and ornaments
  • Hang lights throughout the office
  • Give your employees desktop trees
  • Hang a Merry Christmas banner
  • Hang a New Year's banner when it's appropriate
The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating for the holidays! Put your own spin on it. The holidays are a time to be thankful for what you have and bringing some festive cheer into the office can show your employees that you are thankful for them and appreciate what they do for you.

Christmas bonuses can be a GREAT touch.
The holidays are a time for giving! A Christmas bonus can go a long way when trying to boost your employees' spirits around the holidays. The holidays can be stressful at times, financially, and a Christmas bonus, that extra little bit of money can really help.

Try a holiday gift exchange.
Bring some holiday cheer into the office by allowing your employees to give each other gifts. There are many ways to do so:

  • White Elephant Style - This is where each employee can bring a gift that they don't buy, but just something they may lying around the house. This style is meant to be funnier or casual.
  • Secret Santa Style - This is where everyone puts their names in a hat and each person draws a name but keeps who they draw a secret and buys that person a present.
  • Freestyle - This is where anyone can either choose to buy or not buy gifts for whoever they want. Not everyone may be able to afford to buy presents for coworkers, so this style allows for those who want to opt out to do so.

Instead of office casual attire, try an ugly Christmas sweater party.
Ugly Christmas sweater parties can be such fun and you can even make it into a contest. The best ugly Christmas sweater wins a prize!

Happy Holidays from Kmet Consulting!

Our HR consulting company hopes you found these tips enlightening! Your employees deserve a Happy Holiday season and doing things like this can really help boost their spirits.
