Reward them for a job well done

” A person who feels appreciated will always do more than expected.”

At work, there’s no greater satisfaction than feeling that your boss appreciates your hard work. The Christmas season is a perfect opportunity to let your staff know that you notice the work they’ve done over the past year and value their contributions. The end of the year represents a key milestone in the life cycle of a business and taking your employees out for dinner or lunch is a great way to wrap up a productive year.

Build Stronger Relationships

Colleagues that get along well with each other make for a healthy work environment. The communal act of having a meal with someone forges strong bonds as food is able to unite persons in spite of cultural differences. Your employees will be able to relax in an atmosphere outside of the office. This change of scenery will also enable them to relate to each other outside of work pressures, stress and deadlines.

Motivate Employees for the New Year

Ending the work year on a joyous, high note helps employees to look forward to the year ahead and they’ll return to work motivated and in good spirits to take on the tasks of the New Year. Your Christmas Office get-together is also an ideal time to begin informal conversations about what can be done to make the office a better place to work. With their guards down, your staff will feel more comfortable in sharing candid opinions and you’ll learn a great deal about what works and what doesn’t for your team.
