If you’re looking for a way to boost team morale over the festive period, then why not get your colleagues to decorate the office?
Christmas time without a festive feel may mean your colleagues feel a little downbeat and lethargic, so there’s no better way to brighten spirits and boost team morale.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration, then check out some of our fantastic ideas below;
Fake Snow Cotton Balls
Does what it says on the tin. Simply grab a long needle and thread, slide cotton balls across it, then stick them all over the ceiling and above office desks.
It will immediately make your office look and feel like a Winter wonderland!
Bunting & Paper Garlands
Similarly, bunting and paper garlands can make a room look great, and they’re really easy to make! All you’ll need is coloured paper, scissors and sellotape or pritt-stick.
Simply cut the coloured paper in to strands and loop them together with your tape/pritt-stick. Your colleagues will have loads of fun putting them together.
Dress a Desk
Colleagues tend to get a little more excited when there’s a prize up for grabs, so what better way to offer a prize (like a half day holiday or cash prize) than with a ‘best desk’ competition.
Basically, the more festive and unique each person’s desk is, the better! You could even have a particular theme every year.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a festive tree for the office.
You could encourage colleagues to make baubles and candy canes and even partake in a Secret Santa so you can all gather around the tree to exchange gifts just before you close.
Or how about having your last strategy meeting around the tree? It’ll make a change from the dull meeting room environment.
If you’re feeling generous because your colleagues have worked hard over the last 12 months, then why not grab a Santa outfit, buy some presents, and make your own grotto!?
You could even turn the outside of your office in to a grotto by sticking panels of wood to the wall, hanging a fancy wreath from your door, or making signage to alert people that Santa is in the building.
You could even enlist the help of some personal assistants and dress them as elves!
Finally, office games always go down a treat.
You could have a Christmas themed quiz, or play ‘pin the tail on the reindeer’, musical chairs and pass the parcel. The list really is endless.
