Motivation E-tip: It’s Chilli Cook-off Time!
Everyone needs to blow off steam every once in a while. You and your employees aren’t any different. If all your employees do at work is … work … eventually morale and productivity will grind to a halt. You can quickly and easily turn up the heat at your workplace by creating a fun day with food — a favorite by everyone!
|Have a cook-off contest with all employees voting to judge the winner. This contest could be between managers or any employees who want to enter.|
|Make a fun lunchtime event out of this. It could also be done with other foods such as cookies, pie, or fine cuisine.|
|Also, consider other seasonal contests such as a pumpkin carving contest, or who can wear the most red, white, and blue on July 4, and so on.|
Ask employees for ideas on what contests or cook-offs they would like to have. They’ll feel more involved that way, and you’ll probably have an employee or two who would LOVE to take over handling all the logistics of the event during his or her free time.
