Monday Motivation! Brown-bag it!
|Set up a brown-bag lunch series in which a brief, informative training session is provided for employees while they eat their lunch.
You can provide lunch on these days or have employees bring their own. Work with human resources to have company trainers come in and give tips and how-to advice. Also look to the local community for people to speak on topics such as investing, travel planning, work-life balance, and other topics of general interest.
Consider having employees teach each other on topics they have interest and expertise in, such as how to fly-fish or tie flies; how to create a scrapbook; how to do Pilates, how to make cook-ahead meals, or how to manage stress.
You will need to decide whether this is paid time and clearly communicate the decision to employees up front.
