How'd ya like to stay up late like the islanders do?
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray, for everyday
Your Christmas dreams come true
On Christmas Island your dreams come true.
Jimmy Buffett Christmas has come to the WEC office as part of Spirit Week. You have probably heard of "Christmas in July", well today is "July in Christmas" Day. I was a little bummed that all my beach shirts are packed away in Lynchburg, but made do with what I had. Rob, Jamey and I braved the 46 degree weather in our shorts....brrr! Meredith and Amanda sported the flip flops.
Keeping it fun around the office, especially during high pressure times (like getting ready for Christmas Eve @ the Ferguson Center...don't miss it!) seems to improve attitudes as well as productivity. I remember at the DRIVE conference, hearing how NorthPoint had a Guitar Hero competition and went all out. Happy employees are productive employees.
What do you do to make sure work fun for your employees?
