WINTER TIPS FOR THE OFFICE
Scents and Flavors – just like your home, your office can promote more
favorable image during the winter months.
All you need is a wonderful scent to greet your clients. Try using the Russian Tea idea from the "Home
Tips”. If you don't have a kitchen,
bring a crock pot to keep the tea hot.
Also, have a nice plate of cookies out for clients as they walk in. A candy dish filled with red/green wrapped
candy is a great welcome also.
2. Change of music - Remember to change to
festive music for the holidays. Data
suggests that employees work more effectively, stay calmer and happier when
they hear background music that brings back childhood memories of Holiday celebrations.
3. New Year plans - Everyone needs help
re-focusing when they return to work after the Holidays. Pass out new calendars to each employee. Give them time to think forward and add
special dates on their calendars. Pass
out a list with everyone's birthday (day and month only!) so each employee has
the opportunity to wish their fellow employees a "Happy Birthday” on their
special day. All of this helps to get
people thinking forward instead of back to the Holidays and should help to get
them moving forward at a faster clip!
