Tis the Season

Bring your company together this holiday season

Ask Suzi: Business Tips + Tricks

Dear Suzi:

This month is Christmas and we want to bring our employees together to show them we are thankful for them this holiday season – do you have any fun ideas for parties? – A.E. Bozeman

Dear A.E.-

I love how much you appreciate your employees! As they say, they are the lifeblood of any business. Here are a few ideas:

1. Volunteer Together (free)

Okay, so this isn’t exactly a party idea. But, this time of year can be especially rough for those in need, so giving your time and support as a group during the holidays is a great idea. Not to mention, doing charity together helps build team morale and makes people feel good.

2. Bring Your Team to a Holiday Cooking Class

Fun, different, and tasty! This is a great way to build relationships with the team, learn new skills, and enjoy a meal together!

3. Have a Holiday Themed Potluck

A potluck is a chance for people to show off their culinary or baking skills - take an afternoon to taste your coworkers’ wares and chat about anything other than work. Easy, relaxing, and delicious! Or if your team likes a little healthy competition, why not a holiday food bake off?

4. Have a Decorating Contest + Donate

Decorate your office door, or split cubicle rows up into teams, and see who comes up with the funniest or most creative winter scene. The winners choose where the company will donate $250 to a local non-profit!
