Are your staff new year ready?

By December 1, 2016 December 21st, 2016 blog, Uncategorized

As a business you probably feel ready for the New Year: the office party has been arranged and the staff have booked their holidays. You’ve even scheduled some time to update all the personnel records. Now you can relax – can’t you? But then there’s that small problem of what happens when the Christmas period ends and staff morale takes a nose dive.

After a lovely festive holiday, January is widely regarded as the most demoralising month of the year. This is not just an urban myth or a Twitter hashtag – anyone who is responsible for HR knows that this is the prime time for people to hand in their notice or consider changing their job. You might be forgiven for thinking that a bit of overindulgence at the office Christmas party has something to do with this; however, it’s actually due to people taking the opportunity to do some soul searching over the holidays.

If you recognise this as something that has affected or could affect your business, you’ve probably thought of putting something in place, such as a brainstorming session or quarterly strategy meeting for your staff. So how do you get everyone in one place without interruptions to really help get the best out of the session? At Open Space Meeting Rooms we’ve got the answer!
