Build in some morale with the Halloween candy this year

Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on

Want a sure-fire, low-cost way to raise morale at the office? Celebrate Halloween at the office this year.  It’s an inexpensive, fun way to build up the team morale, improve the atmosphere at work, and have some fun in the workplace.  F. John Reh writes on About.com with regard to this same topic.  Read the full article here.

As I was saying last week to the HR Managers at their RWHRMA October meeting, it doesn’t take much to improve morale and boost the energy of your employees.  To help celebrate the occasion, invite your employees to dress up and give an award for the best costume and another award for best decorated door or cubicle entrance.  The award can be a simple certificate printed off the computer.  How about a covered dish lunch where your staff brings in their best spooky treat?  Or a pumpkin carving contest?  You can trick or treat from office to office to see other team members that you ordinarily wouldn’t converse with on a daily basis.

All of these ideas are low or no- cost options to boost the level of fun in the workplace, build some team morale, and enjoy the holiday!
