See how bots on Workplace can drive engagement with your staff and build company culture around the holidays. Use The Bot Platform to build experiences that automate Secret Santa gift exchanges, advent calendars, fun quizzes, charitable toy drives and much more!
The “Golden Quarter” represents the busiest time of the year for a lot of businesses with many retailers bringing in over 40% of annual profits during the holiday season. It’s also a very busy time for workforce management teams, with over 525K temp staff employed for the holiday period in the US alone.
This time of year can have a big impact on your workforce too, in good ways and bad. For example, while 51% of staff report feeling happier at work during the holiday season, 35% of workers report feeling more stressed at this time of year.
Employers are well aware of the importance of engaging with staff and building company culture around the holidays, but doing it in a way that can scale across a large or distributed workforce and doesn’t take up huge amounts of time to organize can be a challenge.
Luckily, by using bots on Workplace, it’s easy to create engaging experiences that connect your staff, drive engagement and boost morale during the holiday season. If you’re interested in trialing one of these use cases with your staff this year then get in touch!
Gift giving and the season of goodwill is something that naturally spreads into the workplace. According to OfficeTeam 58% of staff plan to give gifts to colleagues but 48% feel pressured to overspend.
As such, fun activities like Secret Santa or White Elephant gift exchanges create a fun and controlled way to allow everyone to join in the fun. And using a bot you can allow staff to sign up, gather gift ideas, match people up and send gift drop off instructions.
Holiday quizzes are another common holiday tradition and, by using bots on Workplace, can easily be scaled across a huge, globally distributed Workforce.
Everyone in a company can take part, from front line staff out on the field through to factory workers on their mobiles and HQ office staff working from desks. Include questions about your company or pop culture, allow staff to compete against each other and reward those who do best.
