Engaging your employees

Engaging your employees should always be high on your agenda, but during winter months, it can be difficult than most times.

The cold, dark (sometimes wet) mornings, afternoons and evenings that come with it can make it hard to motivate your team – however at least you can use some festive activities to keep those levels high.

This can work whether you’re a Christmas-lover or a scrooge, after all you don’t want team members thinking of work as an unpleasant slog, they have to get through to make it till Christmas! After all engaging your employees can have profound improvement on your overall business.

There are loads of ideas, from themed Christmas parties to cake decorating to even watching a Christmas movie. However here at Blue Rocket Accounting we have created an advent calendar of games.

If you followed us on social media (@bluerocketaccounting or @BlueRocketAcc ) you may have seen some of our performances in previous years. This year we wanted to share the fun with you and hopefully give you some inspiration to keep motivation levels high in your business this Christmas period 😊

The rules

First of all, here are the rules, we like to keep things easy so there’s only two!

  • Everybody has to play (if they are in that day)
