Christmas may only roll around once a year, but this period can place a huge demand on employer and employees in some industries. It’s vital to be organised and mindful of staff stress levels. Some suggestions to help alleviate the stress of this time of year could include:
Everyone enjoys staff Christmas parties. They are a good time for staff to let their hair down and relax, but it’s also a good time to familiarise yourself, staff and management on policies for workplace Christmas parties and social events. You may feel this is being a bit over the top, but as you have a duty of care to your employees, it’s important that everyone is on the same page to ensure everyone enjoys themselves safely.
