Valentine’s Day isn’t always about chocolates and flowers with those you love; it can also be an opportunity to express your appreciation for those around you. If you’re looking for clever and simple ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at work, here are a few helpful tips:
Host an Office Breakfast
Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year. A great way to make sure everyone has an excellent start to their day is to host an office breakfast in the breakroom. Even if you simply bring in delicious sweet treats and leave them out for people to enjoy, doing something small but meaningful is sure to bring a smile to people’s faces.
Decorate the Office
Make the workspace feel bright and fun, even in the middle of winter, by decorating it for Valentine’s Day. Whether you buy pink and red balloons and scatter them throughout the office or hang hearts up on the walls, you can do small but fun things to make the space feel a little extra special.
Another option is to host a decorating party, where everyone in the company comes together and creates DIY decorations that they can hang in their respective workspaces, like their cubicles. Not only is this a fun way to spend time with your coworkers, but it will also allow employees to express their creativity.
Setup an Appreciation Bulletin Board
Have employees acknowledge each other’s hard work this Valentine’s Day with an appreciation board. Encourage each employee to write something nice about their coworkers and hang it up anonymously on the board. This will allow each person in the organization to feel appreciated. Just make sure that each employee is included so that no one feels left out.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
