Halloween is exciting in the same way as Christmas and that’s why most people including kids and adults prepare for this creepy festive with full enthusiasm.
But the one’s at work face the real challenge of finding the right costume and the right way to be a part of it without interrupting their office routine. Celebration is important but you cannot let it affect your professional life. If you are a business owner then its best to take some time out of your business hours and throw a small Halloween party instead that you force your employees to work and spoil the festivity of the hour.
So, here are few rules to engage your employees in Halloween 2015 without letting it ruin your business.
Mummy Invitation Cards:
To add fun to the daily routine of your employees, you can send them invites by creating simple mummy invitation cards for the Halloween party. You can create these simple cards with the help of glue gauze, googly eyes, and a cardboard that you can cut into square sized cards.
You can simply place the card on each employee’s desk a day before the party. This will create excitement and a feeling of being welcomed at the party.
The best way to create the Halloween ambiance is asking everyone to be dressed up in the ghostly costumes. You can ask to be original and not too ghoulish like wearing a black outfit with a makeup that looks scary but not horrible. Make sure they don’t spend too many bucks in buying a costume and put together stuff available at their home.
Decorate Your Office:
There are endless options to set your office in the Halloween theme. You can use candy, pumpkin, spider web, boo bottles to decorate your office in Halloween theme. You can even gather all the materials and involve your employees to decorate the entire office or simply their desks.
For example: You can ask them to create anything with cheap and budget friendly items (such as creating lanterns with empty boo-bottles or milk cans and placing white light inside them) as a part of an activity and give reward for best three or two. This will set out a spirit of healthy competition amongst them and also increase their coordination at work.
Make It an Open Festival:
If your business deals with customers directly and you can easily afford it then you can declare it as an open celebration for city dwellers or anybody who wants to join in. This will let more and more people know of your business and would be fruitful for your business in long term.
To make it more fun, you can collect ideas from your employees and ask them to host the event. You can plan this for 2-3 hours after your office hours or cutting short sometime from the office hours only. Anyways, your profits will double up later.
