The Challenge: Holiday Stress!
Are you feeling overworked, over-tired and over-stressed from
all the holiday running around and year end deadlines? So are
most people! And it's taking a toll on morale and productivity.
The 60 Second Solution: Before you start saying "bah-humbug", try these three tips to
keep your team stress free and productive this holiday season.
- Plan the holiday party after December. Many companies are
switching to New Year's parties because December is so full of
activity. A New Year's party is a great way to get everyone on
board with new initiatives and celebrate the past year's wins.
It's also non-denominational, which helps everyone feel more included.
- Get holiday to-do's done at work. Turn one of your conference
rooms into Martha Stewart's dream gift wrapping room. Fill
it with wrapping paper, bows, and all the trimmings.
Encourage people to bring their gifts to work and wrap during
breaks. Not only will they be glad to get this chore off their
lists, but a lot of team building will happen when you get
people together in a relaxed environment. On that note,
another idea is to let people holiday shop over the Internet
during their lunch break.
- Surprise them with a half day off. Think of how grateful
your employees would be to have a couple of extra hours to
holiday shop without the after work crowds, wrap gifts, or
just take time out for themselves. Your team will not only
thank you, but they'll be more refreshed when they return
