If you’re reading this, chances are your office lacks a little swag. You probably clock in at 9AM, crawl into your drab cubicle, and pass time by listening to Sarah in Human Resources pop her gum.
The staff at SlickText wants to help, so we came up with Five Ways to Make Your Office Cooler, just in time for the holidays.
1. Ditch that old school rug.
Look down. You’re probably resting your feet on a grey industrial carpet. We take text message marketing and the happiness of our employees seriously, so we installed a green grass carpet at the SlickText office. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile.
2. The office is your break room.
Many offices have a separate break room, and it usually houses an old school empty fridge. Instead of separating the two, make your employees feel more at home by bringing the break room to the office. At SlickText, we have a Redbull fridge hanging out right near the work area.
3. Don’t be afraid to get personal.
No, we aren’t talking about gossiping the day away, but it’s ok to put family photos up at your desk, or share stories with coworkers. This type of open environment leads to more trust, which ultimately encourages productivity.
4. Plan monthly outings.
Once a month, or even once a week, cut out early for happy hour. Employee bonding is important, and by doing this, you build a corporate culture around friendship, not just professionalism.
5. Work hard, play hard.
You’ve probably heard this saying 1000x, but it is an effective mindset. Reward your employees for hard work by holding contests and setting incentives. Make them feel like they’re directly contributing to the bottom line by encouraging individual growth.
