The busy Christmas period
Despite the presents under the tree, the highly anticipated Christmas dinner and the surrounding of joy and festive fun – Christmas can be a busy time of year for all; Businesses especially.
Yes, you might be rushing around the supermarket for those last minute trimmings but if we think about corporate operations at Christmas time – do we ever really understand the stress it can cause? Busy periods in business such as Christmas Day can bring a lot of pressure to company workforces, causing some to breakdown or loose vital properties within the production line.
Although at this time of year it can’t be prevented, and a week or so of continuous hard work may become necessary – It is important to realise that we can lessen the effects of this period by spreading gratitude and appreciation inside the workplace, and also using the opportunity to build those relationships in a way to appropriately end the year.
So that leads you here, how do you cope with morale around Christmas and other busy periods?
That’s where we come in.
Team building around Christmas and it’s benefits
Team Building has proven its benefits all year round – with it’s ability to motivate and re-inspire, it acts as a rewarding activity that employees can indulge in whilst subconsciously incorporating brand awareness and company values. Not only this, but it is also a great way to show employees that you appreciate them and value the work they do.
When busy periods begin to loom over, it’s a great opportunity to incorporate a relieving team building event in, It can act as a break for the week, or give time for employees to reflect. It acts as a reward, and a treat for employees to get out the office. And it also acts as motivator, as it reminds employees of the company values and the puzzle piece they play within the business.
What can we do?
Well, there’s lots on the market nowadays for Christmas team building; Firstly you need to think about your position. Are you going virtual or are you looking for a real life event? I would always encourage people to engage with real-life events, as they truly do have the power to impact an atmosphere and get everyone involved. This could also be particularly beneficial this year, as following the COVID pandemic, teams, who may not have previously met in person, could get together and build an in-person rapport. Although it is to be understood that this may not be possible for international companies – and virtual is much easier for these groups.
At Cluego, we offer a unique service that is incomparable to any other team building providers out there. Our service is special to us and we do everything in our power to centralise the day about you.
