The holidays may still seem far away…but they’re not! The holidays are an important time to express appreciation for your team and all their hard work over the year.
Recognizing your team during the holidays has many benefits:
Improve employee engagement
Increase sense of accomplishment
Motivate for the New Year
Build camaraderie and loyalty
A holiday recognition theme can make your recognition more effective, memorable and fun. I gained my appreciation for themed holiday celebrations years ago from my aunt.
My aunt would coordinate all of her family Christmas gifts with a theme. One of my favorite holiday themes was My Favorite Things. She coordinated all of our gifts with the song from The Sound of Music! Even the gifts were brown paper packages tied up with string!
A retired nurse, my aunt still recalls the fun holidays she celebrated in the office, too. One year for Nurses Week, she and a coworker created a decorative tower out of cans of Ensure and actually served Ensure punch! They also blew up latex gloves and drew funny faces on them.
She says themed holidays were a lot of fun for the office and a great morale booster for her co-workers.
As you can tell, holiday recognition themes leave a lasting impression. My aunt is a pretty creative lady, so don’t worry if you can’t come up with creative holiday recognition themes on your own. We’ve done the work for you!
In addition to our 100+ recognition themes, Baudville has created four new holiday themes to make recognition easy at the end of the year. With coordinating gifts, including our popular Spinner Ornaments, you can select a gift for each member of your team and celebrated in themed fashion!
