FIVE WAYS TO DECORATE YOUR OFFICE THIS CHRISTMAS – BOOSTING MORALE
The Christmas period is often a time where we work our little socks off right up until those well earned holidays come up. But, can making the office a little extra festive have a positive impact on your staff? I think, yes! Whether you’re working from an office or, you work from home like me, sprucing up your work surroundings can really have a positive impact on morale. I often live by the rule ‘tidy office, tidy mind’, but I think you can also apply this to office decor too. Decorating your office with Seasonal decorations can boost your motivation whilst working. I’ve got five ways you can spruce up your office below.

THE OBVIOUS ONE
The obvious one is getting a Christmas tree. This one alone can totally transform your office. A faux Christmas tree is much more of an economical choice. If your tree is in the office area rather than a kitchen or meeting room try and go for subtle rather than a lot of colour. By choosing a simple but warm colour scheme it can create a different atmosphere in the office. Certain colours are more uplifting than others. Apparently, gold promotes enthusiasm, balancing thoughts and feelings, and wisdom.
Five ways to decorate the office at Christmas
CHRISTMAS CARD DECOR
A lot of companies tend to receive Christmas cards so why not take the opportunity to showcase them in a creative way. You can take some string and pin pieces of it around the office creating a Christmas card feature wall. Reading well wishes from other companies can boost morale in staff members and in turn, creating a happy team.
Don’t forget the treats! Treat yourself and your staff to a mince pie or two. Maybe you could organise a Christmas lunch just before you all break for the holidays. You could even hold Christmas themed party games as part of the festivities.
Secret Santa can be a more affordable way for staff to give to one another before the holidays. Don’t put pressure on everyone to enter though. I think it’s also important to discuss budgets with everyone taking part too – Christmas can be expensive without added financial pressure on staff members.
GET STAFF MEMBERS ADVENT CALENDARS
Advent calendars can be a fun way of the whole team counting down the days till Christmas together. If you’re feeling extra creative get the team to make their own advent calendar, everyone can contribute and open one door each.
Whatever you decide to do during the festive period, I really hope you have a happy lead up to Christmas. Enjoy the festivities and a much needed break over Christmas. Let’s not forget about those who work over Christmas too – anyone who works in retail, hospitals and for the police often have to work through the festive period. I take my hat off to anyone who doesn’t get a break over the holidays! You’re all amazing!
