Tips on Enjoying the Holidays (and staying productive!)

The Holiday Season can be a complicated time in the workplace. All of the parties, gift exchanges, and celebrations can get in the way of normal work duties; sometimes resulting in a loss of productivity. Below are a few tips that might help this holiday season!

  • Keep holiday gift-giving reasonable!
    • Consider doing a gift-swap type of game, with a reasonable $ cap, for folks to volunteer for. This type of exchange will help to concentrate the gift giving to one block of time and limit the amount of commotion that comes from so many one to one exchanging!
  •  Don’t let the company party be a drag on your productivity!
    •  Holiday company festivities are a great way to wrap up the year and give back to your team, but many times this can lead to unwanted consequences like an unprofessional atmosphere or even worse: a tipsy atmosphere! This year, plan one single work party after hours and off premises! (Preferably on an evening where folks are off the next day, for recovery!)
  •  End the year on a positive note!
    •  As employees and managers are rushing to wrap up projects and prepare for the next year, the holidays can often be a stressful time. Take this time to recognize positive performances and exude a positive attitude about the year ahead!

How to Encourage Work-Life Balance

Attaining a positive work-life balance can become an increasingly difficult task for employees. But doing so can promote motivation, satisfaction, and overall well-being. Below are a few things that can enhance morale, leading to improved performance in your personnel.

Promote the Use of PTO
Time off can help boost productivity, but 70 percent of U.S. workers aren’t using their earned hours for reasons like “being too busy” or “returning” to piles of work,” Helping your team take time to reset and recharge is crucial in maintaining a healthy organization.

Embrace the Holiday Spirit
It is common to encounter more work-life conflicts during the holidays. But stress at the office can create burnout and negatively affect the holiday spirit. Make your workplace holiday experience a little more manageable, by configuring in vacation time and holiday hours when planning projects and performance goals.
