Top Tips To End January 2023 On A Good Note For Your Employees
January is when you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You’re either looking forward to spring or thinking about taking advantage of all those vacation days before they run out.
While there’s no denying that January can be a tough month, it’s also an opportunity for you, as a manager, to show your employees how much they mean to you and how much they can look forward to in their careers at your organization.
Here are some tips for ending January with a bang:
Plan A Happy Hour
A happy hour is a great way to start the new year. If you want to plan an office happy hour that will be fun and casual, consider hosting it at your place of business. It will allow everyone in your company to relax after work, get to know each other better, and enjoy themselves for an evening.
Before planning the happy hour itself, however, ensure you have ample food and drink available for guests, including any guests bringing their children, spouses/significant others. While it’s important not to overdo this aspect of the celebration, having enough hors d’oeuvres on hand makes it clear that you care about providing nourishment and entertainment in equal measure.
The next thing you’ll need is activities, not just games like charades or beer pong but also prizes like gift cards or vouchers for local restaurants near where they live so they can treat themselves later on if they don’t win anything during playtime tonight.
Plan An Office Olympics
When you’re planning your office Olympics, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure you include events that can be done in the office. You don’t want employees heading outside every time they want to play their sport of choice. Second, while you want to ensure everyone is included, it’s essential to remember team-building activities.
Get A Massage Therapist To Come To The Office
According to the AMTA 2022 Massage Industry Fact Sheet, people get massages mainly for health and wellness. If you want your employees to feel appreciated and relaxed, consider getting a massage therapist to come to the office. It can be done for a special occasion such as team building, customer appreciation day, or an employee appreciation event.
Massage therapy can provide individuals with many health benefits, including improved circulation, reduced stress levels, and overall relaxation. When combined with other activities such as exercise or meditation, massage offers numerous advantages, including decreased anxiety levels and increased energy levels through improved sleep patterns.
Make A Group Of Employees Go On A Team-Building Retreat
Team-building is a great way to build employee relationships by planning and executing an activity. It’s also an excellent way to get to know your employees better, which can help you identify new talent or strengths and weaknesses in your company.
It doesn’t have to be complex or expensive either. Think about what your employees enjoy doing as individuals and put them together in groups based on those interests. It will give them common ground for conversation and make it easier for everyone involved to connect.
Plan An Escape Room Day Trip
If you’re looking for a way to break up the monotony of work and bring some excitement into your office, an escape room day trip may be just what you need. Your team will have fun working together to solve puzzles, find clues and unlock locks.
An escape room is also a great team-building exercise as it requires employees to rely on each other to succeed at their tasks. If you want to reward employees who have been working hard or want something new and different for your company retreats, an escape room experience makes an excellent choice.
Throw A Party On 2023/01/31 And End The Day Early
The best way to end January 2023 on a high note is by throwing a party for your employees. It will help ensure that everyone stays motivated and engaged during the remainder of their workday, so it’s essential to keep it light and fun. It’s important as, according to a Gallup study, a highly engaged workforce increases productivity by 21%.
