Pretty much from now until almost mid-January, offices across the country are gearing up to celebrate “the holidays.”
Holiday season is the time when some office managers or human resources coordinators take on the responsibility of decorating workspaces to boost morale for the staff and make the environment more inviting for in-coming traffic.
Depending on the business or ethnicity/religion of the employees and clientele, your office may be adorned with everything from candy filled jack-o-lanterns to Christmas trees and Menorah’s complete with candles.
While it’s true that spirits are lifted during this time of year, cold and flu season is also on the rise. Making your office space as tidy and germ-free as possible before you put up the trimmings should be the first step in making the holidays truly merry for your staff.
Most people look for a reason to celebrate once the weather starts to change, but getting sick is no way to greet what should be a time of joy-and leading into the New Year, a time of renewal. In addition to being a real productivity killer, illness during the holidays can spread like wildfire, because we have closed the windows and spend more time inside. So, despite your company’s best efforts to merry up the place, attention needs to be given to thoroughly cleaning away those leftover germs and bugs that may be lurking from last season, so that your dedicated workforce stays healthy, happy and working during the holidays.
