It is the most wonderful time of the year – the holiday season is here! Below are tips that can be beneficial in keeping your employees engaged, healthy and happy this holiday season.
- Recognize your employee’s hard work
Recognizing your employee’s contribution helps to prevent disengagement. Many companies are quick to provide a monetary incentive in the form of a bonus but there are other ways to show your appreciation such as hosting an award ceremony.
- Encourage employees to use their PTO
Between work and family obligations, your employees can become easily overwhelmed. It’s important to encourage your employees to use their earned paid time off. It’s important for management to remind employees of the PTO policy and lead by example by taking time off as well.
- Plan a fantastic holiday party
As we are all returning to a sense of normalcy, it is time to celebrate the holidays amongst co-workers. Whether your company hosts the party at the office or at a restaurant, make it extra special by providing fun activities and giveaways.
- Focus on communication
As the year is coming to an end, communication is very important to ensure year-end expectations are met. Schedule weekly meetings and share important information with your employees.
- Offer benefits that promote your employee’s mental and physical health
Encouraging healthy habits increases your employee’s mental health and boosts their productivity. By incorporating physical activity such as membership to fitness classes, you can even reduce employee turnover.
