6 Ways to Bring the Christmas Spirit to the Office
With many companies back at the office and on top of the uncertainty around what the future might hold, there is always one thing that is promised - Christmas. Explore all the joyous ways you can celebrate at your office:
- Have an ugly Christmas sweater competition -
One classic way to lighten up the mood in the office is to offer a prize for the best/most creative festive sweater. Bring on the laughter and good conversation, a sure-fire way to unload the stresses of work and improve company culture.
- Give back to the community -
One fun way to fundraise for charity is to host a bake-sale in the office kitchen. There are always a few great bakers in every company and then there are those who are always looking for a sweet treat!
A food drive is another special way to give to those less fortunate and encourages people to keep on giving, even after the holiday season is over. It's also interesting and inspiring to see what your colleagues have to offer.
This superior festive gift exchange is guaranteed to be pure entertainment. One good way to encourage your colleagues to get involved is setting a spending limit - everyone knows what they can spend and you can ensure your exchange partner won't skimp on their gift to you - when this does happen though, it's pretty funny, especially when you're not the receiver.
- Plan a holiday themed potluck -
Free food? yes please.
Potlucks are so exciting, you don't really know what others will bring but there is sure to be a great variety of food, especially if you've got a multi-cultural office! What better way is there to boost morale other than digging in to good food and discussing cooking techniques?
- Host an office movie marathon -
Set up a movie marathon in the conference room during lunch or after work and play the favourite holiday classics. A lovely way to reinforce your company culture and bring the office together for some light-hearted Christmas fun. A break like this can also inspire creativity and boost motivation.
- Play all the Christmas classics -
Slap on the radio or put on a Spotify playlist, there are tons of Christmas jingles out there to make you smile and sing along!
