Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means the holiday season is officially underway! While December can bring a lot of excitement, it can often be a stressful or hectic time for employees. Keep your workers engaged during the holidays with these simple tips.
- Set measurable goals. Setting both long-term and short-term goals can help employees focus and stay on track during the busy holiday season.
- Embrace a flexible work schedule. As employees plan travel plans to visit family and friends during the holidays, work with them to come up with a flexible- but productive- schedule. This will help them find the right work-life balance.
- Get into the holiday spirit. Create an enjoyable atmosphere in your office by hosting a holiday party, bringing in a special treat or simply sending out a festive email expressing your appreciation for your employees’ hard work.
- Recognize and reward. As the year comes to a close, be sure to recognize and reward employees as they meet their deadlines and achieve their goals. This will help your employees feel motivated and valued.
