A “Merrier” Kind of Engagement

Engaging with employees is one of the most important aspects that must be taken into consideration by owners when running a company. This strengthens the bond between the employer and the employee, that when continued, could elevate the company to new heights of success.

Workplace believes in that concept, that’s why they wanted their application to look like Facebook, so that they could provide a cool yet unique experience for teams when collaborating with each other.

The holiday season is the best time for employers to connect with their employees. There are many ways on how you could engage effectively with your staff using Workplace.

1. A Simple “Thank You” Message

Holidays is the best time for CEOs to appreciate the effort of their employees and post a “thank you” message which can be seen by staff in Workplace, as a way of giving thanks for the blessings and opportunities that the company had experienced throughout the year. This is also the perfect spot for them to wish their employees the best for this holiday season.

2. Plan Everything with Workplace

Workplace is also the best tool for you to plan your christmas celebration. With Workplace, you could create and appoint your christmas committee, as well as doing surveys to know the pulse of employees on what theme should be used for the year end party you’re planning.

3. Share Some Videos

You could also post any holiday videos to Workplace like year end reviews from the CEO and employees where they will discuss the things that they were thankful of, or a summary of what both camps had accomplished for this year.

4. Publish Photos After the Event

It’s also a great idea to post some photos to Workplace during or even after the Christmas party. Photos are great memory preservers, as having photos from the celebration uploaded at Workplace would always remind employees of how everybody enjoyed at the party.
