There is a long running idea that Halloween is just for kids. That unless you are under the age of 13 or in college, that dressing up and getting into the spirit of the holiday isn’t for adults and definitely doesn’t have a place in the office. That is just nonsense! Halloween could be the perfect way to boost your employees’ morale and keep your office motivated.
While more and more adults are getting into the Halloween spirit this time of year, it can make for a less motivated office environment. Less motivation results in less productivity. Here are a few tips to ensure that your office stays motivated during this spooktacular time of year.
- Allow your employees to dress up for Halloween. While ensuring that any costume ideas are appropriate for the workplace, allow your employees to express their creativity this one day a year. You will be surprised how this simple gesture will show your employees just how much you care about their well-being.
- Get out of the office and volunteer. Dressing up not your thing? No problem! Plan a day for your employees to get out and volunteer in the community. This could involve volunteering at a local soup kitchen or animal shelter. Regardless of the avenue, it always feels good to get out and give back.
- Plan games or activities for the office to all participate in. There are a number of games and ideas to keep the festive feeling in the air. Guess how many pieces of candy are in a jar, costume contests, office or cubical decorating contests are all engaging and exciting ways to get your employees involved and motivated.
- Throw a Halloween themed office party! Plan a party at the end of the day or even plan one after hours to allow your employees to let loose and have some fun with their coworkers. Short on money? Plan the party at the office and turn it into a potluck, bring a dish to pass event.
Giving your employees an avenue to enjoy themselves and let loose around this time of year is an excellent way to help focus their motivation not only through the end of the day but it is a great way to jumpstart the holiday season.
