It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
…..or so it should be by now!
You have just over a week to dust off those old office decorations or come up with a new idea for 2018 .
I love Christmas. It’s such a wonderful time to show others we care. A time to stop and reflect on how lucky so many of us are to have wonderful friends, supportive families and fantastic jobs where we are able work with amazing people. It’s also a time to reach out and help others.
Too many offices and retailers are shying away from Christmas decorations ☹
Is it they don’t want to politically offend? Are they worried about the cost to install and then again to remove any decorations? You don’t have to hire a professional decorator to have Impact! I have some ideas for you…..
Why not create an office Charity Tree, pulling the team together and helping a charity in need? Have a discussion on how you think your staff could make a difference to someone this Christmas. Bring in toys or items, or buy a gift tag which they write a donation amount on with their name, then collect that money and make a donation to a charity.
Some local charities to consider: Salvation Army, Children’s Hospital, Bernandos, The Smith Family, Mission Australia, Starlight Foundation
Why don’t you hold a contest for the ‘most creative desk space’ with a prize for the winning department? Like the below amazing Xmas Pod PC backdrop and Christmassy desk adornment:
We would love you to send us a picture of your office Christmas Style!! Email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
C’mon people – Christmas is meant to be a fun, carefree, giving time. A time to celebrate with friends and family.
Why not nominate yourself as the one who starts spreading the Christmas cheer this year?
That’s all from me,
