We all are excited as a festive time of year has already kicked in; people are filled with the emotion of joy. However, the zing, enthusiasm and festive feel are not only restricted to friends and family, but also into the workplace. Employees excitedly look forward to participating in various celebrations and also contribute a few of their work to these fiestas.
When the festive season comes in, organizations may seem to be feeling less productive at the workplace, but honestly, they have higher chances to derive the best out of their employees. But how this is even possible? What are the ways through which employees can be motivated as well as organizations’ productivity also increases? Here comes the role of the Human Resource Management team. They should design and plan out some patterns through which everyone can take advantage of the festival.
The steps/methods prepared by HR team can vary from industry to industry and also it completely depends on what kind of employees/population the organization is thinking to target. Now-a-days, most of the people move to other cities, state or country for work and as observed they are mostly youngsters, so they want to have a work environment where they can also feel part of the festival while being far away from their friends and families.
On the other side, organizations think of maintaining and increasing their productivity when employees take a holiday for a few days or weeks during the festive season. In this case, it becomes difficult for companies to refuse their employees from taking offs and they try to certainly make provisions for the same.
-During this festive season, companies can run or plan out some contests which are festival based and will help to increase productivity. For example- Employee who achieves maximum business logged in can get an amazing 10% or 20% on the incentive earned on that sale. The festive season is the only time when companies can bring our maximum productivity from their employees/workforce because everyone wants to carry home additional gifts and vouchers and grab the chance to earn that extra money. Each employee puts in the extra effort so that they can spend more with and for their families.
-Also, employees can be given extra points on their work which will be added up to their scoreboard for promotions, or an opportunity offered to the best worker to be a member of some team discussion or meeting.
-They may also get a chance to go on a vacation with family, after achieving the required target.
-As the festive season is just going to enter the gates of the corporate sector, majority of Human Resource teams among their professionals will be focusing on how to boost employee engagement during festivals and increase the company’s productivity. The festive season brings in very difficult situations for those companies who provide 24×7 services to their customers/clients.
-During this period, companies can bring in the option of ‘Work from Home’ for their employees, so that they can enjoy their festive holidays as well as complete the work assigned to them. In this case, employees will be happy working as well as organizations productivity will not get hinder rather it will reach heights.
-Organizations can also come up with small events where employees are appreciated for their contribution to the success rate. Also in such events, supervisors, HR professionals can motivate employees to work more effectively and efficiently.
