How to Stay Productive at Work During the Holidays

Staying productive at work during the holidays

If you’ve noticed productivity dipping at your office during the holidays, you’re not alone. Studies show that more than two-thirds of workers report being less productive in December compared to other months.

Guest blogger Jessica Pyykkonen of Ghergich & Co, teamed up with ZeroCater to create an article and complementary infographics on workplace productivity around the holidays.

They discuss how and why productivity can dip on and around holidays and offer strategies to keep morale and productivity steady.

For instance, before certain occasions, you can schedule meetings and deadlines that are more sensible for hectic schedules. You could also  consider pushing meetings until after a holiday or skipping them, if  possible, so employees can focus on completing projects and meeting goals that take priority.

Other tips from the article include:

  • acknowledging the holiday and take a break by planning a company luncheon or event
  • allowing employees flexibility in their schedules at the holidays
  • recognizing employee accomplishments with an expression of gratitude
  • establishing high priority goals and examining what can wait until after the holidays

The holidays don’t have to be a time of hectic disruption. With just a few adjustments, you can turn this time of year into a productive time that works for your business. That’s a gift worth giving any time of year.
