The new year is a great time to get your staff motivated for improvement at the office! Once everyone has had a chance to rest and enjoy the holidays with their loved ones, they’ll have a fresh-faced attitude that is perfect for cleaning up and making goals for the rest of the year. Now is the best time of year to improve staff motivations and get your Calgary office pumped about 2019. We’ve compiled some of our favourite strategies for ringing in the new year with your coworkers.
Rearrange the Office
Rearranging your floor plan can encourage people to start thinking about their projects in a new way. Developing a physical environment that encourages collaboration, cleanliness, and positive attitudes makes a major difference in your company’s production. Getting everyone to lend a helping hand for this turns switching up office desks into a great team activity. They’ll be excited to clean up those files and garbage that have been cluttering up their desks. Open layouts give everyone access to sunlight and promote dynamic approaches to project communication. If you’re too busy to completely change up your office structure, your commercial cleaning company can offer some specific advice to improve office habits!
Reflect on the Past Year
Reflecting on last year’s productivity is a really important way for improving your business, both individually and the company overall. It’s always a great idea to sandwich the criticism between praise. Start with something that happened during 2018 that the business is proud of. When it’s time to talk about the past year’s problems, make sure to frame it as what can be improved for the new year. Identify issues about the office space that affected productivity: dirty desks and hands can cause sickness and general bad moods for staff. This is a great way to transition to talking about goals for the next year.
Set Goals for the New Year
Ask your staff about their personal goals, both in and outside of the business. Give everyone a chance to share so they start the year of feeling connected to their coworkers. Get everyone into teams to focus on project goals and design some big aspirations for the general business. Set cleaning goals with your staff and janitors to invest in a healthy office environment. Don’t stop there though! Turn these into routines instead of resolutions by establishing the small steps you need to get there. Track and celebrate everyone’s successes throughout the year.
The new year is a great time to get your team reinvested in the company through reflection and new aspirations.
