2017 is moving faster than Homer Simpson to a sale on blue pants, and somehow here we are, mere moments away from Easter. At COS we’ve been discussing celebrating Easter at work and thought we’d better hop to it!
These days we are all spending more and more time at work, and as a result more time with our colleagues. This means that while we’re busily working away bonds are being made and friendships born……isn’t that nice? We spend so much time with our colleagues that they’re pretty much our “work family”, wouldn’t you agree?
Easter is a time for family, it’s traditionally a time when we sit down with our loved ones and share a great meal and some good times. So why not do the same with your “work family” and celebrate Easter at work?
There are a number of ways to make sure a celebration is had with your colleagues, sure, you could go out for the standard lunch at the local cafe but don’t you do that every Friday anyway? And do you really want to go and eat the same old Chicken Schnitzel you’ve had a dozen times? Why not make it a little special for Easter? You could throw a pot-luck style lunch where everybody brings a dish, this works fantastically at COS, we have such a diverse staff that it’s like travelling the world every time we share a meal. YUM! Or you could decorate the lunch or meeting room and have it catered. Either way, COS can help with a great range of catering supplies, snacks and drinks to make it easy and fun. And a little tip, from us to you, order paper plates and disposable cutlery, you will thank us at clean up time.
To make things interesting at work and to get everyone excited about the Easter Long Weekend why not put together a fun Easter game for your team. It’s like your traditional Easter Egg hunt, but for grown ups.
The Great Office Egg Hunt
The grown up version of the traditional Easter Egg Hunt.
Step 1. Head to your local discount, craft or art store and buy a bunch of plastic Easter eggs, the kind that open and close. Here’s what you’re looking for:
Step 2. Fill the plastic Easter Eggs with small lollies and prizes. For prizes think vouchers for a bonus day off, or if that’s pushing it an extra hour lunch break, an extra discount, a coffee voucher for your local cafe – we know you can be creative here.
Step 3. Hide the eggs around the office, but don’t make it too easy!
Step 4. Send out email clues throughout the day. This will break up the game so it won’t impact productivity too much and will get staff up and moving around for short bursts of time (the ergonomics experts would be so proud!)
Step 5. Sit back and soak up the huge amount of praise you’ll receive for implementing such a great game in the office.
Whatever you decide to do for Easter we hope you have a great time with family, friends and of course, your “work family” and don’t forget to check out www.cos.net.au for all your office celebration needs. Happy Easter!
