Summer has officially arrived! For many, this is the greatest season of the year, filled warm weather, beach vacations and lazy pool days. People want to relax and enjoy themselves right now and you can help make this happen starting at the office.
While you still need your team to do their jobs on gorgeous summer days, there’s a number of ways you can make it more enjoyable. Letting your employees have a little fun this summer will definitely make them happy ─ increasing their levels of job satisfaction and productivity.
4 Summertime Perks to Show Appreciation to Your Team
Use the following four ideas to increase team morale and keep production at a high level this summer:
- Ability to Get Outside at Lunch: Many employees often work through lunch, barely leaving their desks all day. However, there’s nothing more relaxing than getting outside at lunch time for some fresh air and coming back refreshed and rejuvenated. If possible, install a few benches or picnic tables outside, to encourage your team members to take a break and enjoy the summer weather.
- Summer Fridays: Provide your employees with a special summer perk they will definitely be grateful to have ─ the ability to leave work a few hours early every Friday during the summer. This is a wonderful way to increase morale and make people truly glad they work for your company.
- Fun Team Activities: Promote teambuilding this summer by organizing a few fun events for your staff to enjoy the warm weather and bond with one another. Whether you take the afternoon off and head to a baseball game together or hold a family-friendly picnic in a local park on a Saturday, this is a great way to help your staff enjoy the sunniest season of the year.
- Casual Dress Code: Not only is summer the most relaxing season ─ it’s also the warmest. Give your staff the benefit of having a more relaxed dress code during this time of year, allowing them to be more comfortable. This will also increase productivity, as it’s difficult to work at capacity when overheated or otherwise wearing clothing that is uncomfortable.
